SF : : Day 2, part #1

Tuesday morning our friend had a class, so he dropped Rachel and I off at the SF pier to walk around for a couple hours.  Originally we had planned to go to Alcatraz during this time, but we'd looked it up that morning and there weren't any ferries we could get onto.  So we figured we'd do it some other time that week and just walked around the pier for awhile.

After walking all around the pier we ended up at Pier 39 where the ferries take off for Alcatraz, and we thought we'd get in the ticket line just to see if we could get on one at that time, even though we'd heard there wasn't any availability.  Got there at 10:25, and ran all the way to the 10:30!  We were the last onto the ferry, and off we went.
The actual prison at Alcatraz wasn't that interesting, but the view was really nice and I liked the ferry ride.  We explored for about two hours before heading back to SF. 

The flag on Alcatraz was at half mast for the Boston bombing that occurred the previous day.

SF : : Day 1

Okay, so here's the pics from the first day of the trip that Rachel and I took to San Francisco.  I can't promise that day 2 will be done anytime in the foreseeable future, at least until I'm done with finals, but at least I've begun!

So I think I may have mentioned in a previous post that this was my first time flying.  Ever.  Kind of sad but, you know, at least I did it before I turn twenty.  Anyway, the concept of flying was a pretty daunting one and I was pretty freaked out.  Our first flight was on a pretty small plane, which I think made it worse, but after that our connecting flight and then the ones coming home were all great.  I really like flying, although Rachel officially hates it.

Preparing for takeoff...but really nothing could have prepared us. ;)

 After we landed in SF, we dropped our bags off at our hotel and then went to Treasure Island, where we saw the ocean for the first time!  It was crazy windy and cold, but the view was really beautiful.
 After going to Treasure Island we drove around SF for awhile.  It was pretty terrifying.  The traffic is a nightmare, the roads are basically vertical, and I was so lost.
We went to Japantown, even though all the shops were closed for the night.
And, finally, we went out to eat at this awesome little hole-in-the-wall restaurant called...Crepevine?  I think that's what it was.  I highly recommend it for anyone in SF.
Day 2 will be up sometime this week.

SF sneak peek

I will post about my trip to San Francisco...if I can just survive finals.

I'll be done next week!


field trip

Today Chloe and I went on a field trip...sort of.  The day started off with me working 7-1, and then we headed to the zoo where I was supposed to meet my science class for a required field trip.  Never actually found them, but we had a good time anyway just the two of us; you know, typical pseudo-teen mom and her daughter.

Soon after this Chloe became "that child" who is chasing the peacock around the zoo, just asking for some employee to ask us to leave, and becoming the source of entertainment for all those around her.
