I left my Heart in San Francisco

We had a wonderful trip to San Francisco. Each of us got to do everything we wanted to do! The four of us travel together very well. Despite the storms over Dallas that delayed us a day we still rate the trip a success. Kurt, Rikki, and I got to spend some time on the tarmac in Oklahoma City and the night in Dallas. We even got to have dinner with Kurt's brother Kelly since we were stranded in Dallas. Oddly, he was on his way to the airport to pick up someone else (who didn't arrive) so he was able to meet and shuttle us to our "Distressed Traveler" hotel.

I took a ridiculous amount of pictures and video. I'll be spending a lot of time downloading and labeling them. I adore our new camera (thanks Mom!). It has awesome features (that i don't know how to use) and video.

Some of the hilights of our trip include:

  • Going to "Bed" - a lot like in Sex and the city!
  • Riding the Cable Cars
  • Staying at the Sir Francis Drake and attending the Drag Brunch at the Starlight Room
  • Visiting Alcatraz at night
  • Eating seafood - chowder, dungeness crab, prawns mmmmm
  • Visiting the Japanese Tea Garden, Haight-Ashbury, and the Castro
  • Riding the Double Decker bus and crossing the Golden Gate
  • Eating, Eating, and Eating
  • Walking, Walking, and Walking

Picture highlights will follow. Maybe even some video if I can figure it out!
