I arrived home on Sunday night and turned around and left for San Francisco on Monday. I was there for a conference on Wednesday & Thursday but Jessica (my co-worker) and I went down a day early for some fun. We started off the day heading over to Alcatraz. What I find interesting is how close it really is to San Francisco, yet so far for those incarcerated there. And now I really want to watch the movie The Rock again! My favorite line in that movie is when Sean Connery says "Welcome to The Rock" which I'm sure Jessica got tired of hearing since I kept saying it! We came back and walked along the wharf. While we were walking, somehow we talked ourselves into renting a bike and riding it to the Golden Gate Bridge. It ended up being fun! We rode across the bridge and down to Sausalito to catch the ferry. The ferry dropped us off at Pier 1 (we needed to drop the bikes off past Pier 43) so we hopped back on the bikes. After a stop at Ghiradelli Square we headed back to our hotel and meet up with another co-worker, who had just arrived, for dinner. Wednesday night we headed back to Fisherman's Wharf so I could have some yummy clam chowder in a bread bowl.
And now I leave for Disneyworld on Wednesday night!!
