I’ve always wanted to visit San Francisco. I’ve heard so many great things about it! I took advantage of the Columbus Day long weekend and went out to visit my sister and brother-in-law, who just moved there a few months ago. I love love loved it!
The weekend I visited also happened to be Fleet Week, so there were lots of visitors in town. And of course lots of Sailors and Marines, too. I was excited to text my dad about Fleet Week and all he responded was, “Watch out for the Sailors.” Ha ha.
We watched the Blue Angels flight show with the Golden Gate bridge and the bay as the backdrop. It was awesome! The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing, shopping, sightseeing, and enjoying the beautiful weather.
Rudyard Kipling expresses exactly how I felt about the City by the Bay:
“San Francisco has only one drawback—’tis hard to leave.“
