Palace Wedding’s

Went for a much more sedate and leisurely stroll today through the backstreets of Nob Hill down in to Cow Hollow. A few good photo ops along the way as we walked past yet more finely architected houses.

Everyone loves a good wedding and we stumbled across several when we reached the Palace of Fine Arts. Made for some great pics I recon.

Ritual Coffee Roasters
Ritual Coffee Roasters

Started with a great coffee at Ritual Coffee Roasters.

Then on to de Young Museum (briefly) to get tickets to Legion of Honor and the museum. We then walked up to the Legion of Honor and back down to de Young Museum for a night visit before heading back to Union Square for dinner.

Game Day

With all the exercise this week (see my Fitbit stats at we needed a day off from that today.

To celebrate, we went to a ball game as the San Francisco Giants hosted the Chicago Cubs at AT&T Park with some tickets I bought off stubhub a while ago.

SF didn’t disappoint either, winning over the visitors by 9-1 with rookie Kelby Tomlinson entertaining the crowd with a grand slam for his first career home run. Just awesome to be in the sellout crowd for that!

Escaping Alcatraz

Well, we managed to get in and out of Alcatraz earlier in the week. Stopping off at Angel Island first for a quick looksee and some lunch. Caught a bit of sunburn too. Oops 🙂

Faces of the Bridge

Managed to not sleep in this morning so I’ve had  time to sort through some more photos – this lot from our trip over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Superb feat of engineering brilliance. A bit crowded with likeminded tourists up to the first pillar but foot traffic dropped off dramatically after that making for some great uninterrupted photo ops.
