Final San Francisco Recap (Days 6 and 7): Bridging It All Together

by CajunKate

So this is it! The last recap! Finally! Hurray! And YAY! I feel like I’ve reached the end of final exam week or something. Also, I am supremely overjoyed that I will never have to type the world’s longest trip title- City by the Bay Most Excellent Vacay Ever Sponsored by San Francisco Best Friend/Tour Guide Seth- ever again! Now, on to the LAST recap, which will be very short because, as you can tell, I’ve grown weary of this recap business and also because I am incredibly lazy.

On Day 6, we went to church at the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption:


And picked up Baby Jesus:


And pondered existential questions:


And then we went to the Marina to get stunning pics of the GG Bridge, but we got fog instead:


And then we walked on the GG Bridge:


And, in trying to capture the fog whipping across the bridge, I finally figured out how to use the video feature on my camera:

And then we went drinking and eating yummy bratwurst at Zeitgeist Bar:


And introduced Baby Jesus to their world famous Bloody Mary (Is it me or is this shot my “Do not pass GO; do not collect $200” ticket straight to hell?):


And then we drank some more at the Blackthorn Irish Pub and Tavern where we were served by a real live Irish bartender and where I didn’t take pictures. And then we ate the most delicious Chinese food ever from San Tung. Better then any I have had anywhere (and that includes NYC). Oh, spicy peanut sauce with seafood over noodles, how I wish you would move to Lafayette! I didn’t take pics of that either.

And then we went to sleep. Of course, no pics of that.

On Day 7, I said good bye to SF.


Now Baby Jesus and the only thing I bought for myself in San Francisco are back in Lafayette:

Thanks to Seth and Baby Jesus for a great trip. Oh, and to that Alex guy, too.

The End.

Very, very entertaining, JB. If, for whatever reason, you ever give up on your life as an educator, you surely qualify as a travel editor.
I am going to try and talk the First Lady into a trip out west next year. Maybe you and Alex might wanna come along.

Oh, did you weigh before and after the trip? Couldn' resist! :>)))
