R&R Part TWO: San Fran

I was lucky enough to grow up in California and one of my favorite places of all time is San Fransisco! I love the food, the culture, the architecture and the fact that its one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. I have been going there as long I can remember and I was so excited to take Eric there for the day. We didn't get to see everything because lets face it, theres so much to do! We had such a good time and I wish we could have stayed longer! I kept my post to only 15 pictures, so you wont get bored! Enjoy :)

Here is Eric in front of the bathroom that cleans itself after each use. While it cleans, it still smells funny!
We started the day off right with food from my favorite street vendor La Isabela which is on Fisherman's Wharf. We had clam chowder, curly fries and some fried shrimp. It was DELISH!!!

Next we went to a place that has tons of old arcade games. They uses to be at the Cliff House which is in the movie Princess Dairies. But they moved them all to San Fran. Eric decided to challenge this man to arm wrestling but he lost :(
I WON!! Mind you it was with 2 hands on the easiest level, but a win is a win in my book!
After that, we went on a tour of this old Navy ship that was used in World War 2. I have always wanted to go on a ship. It was fun except for getting a little sea sick!
I thought this was the best picture of the entire trip. The way the flag is just makes me so proud!!
This was our (or my) attempt at taking a picture of us on the boat. It only took 4 tries lol!
Then we headed down the street and had a few beers before we walked to the trolley!
Heres us, pad picture of me but how cute is my husband!! Remember me here though because that is my FAT picture (more on that later)
Here is Eric on the trolley which he had never been on in his life so I told him he must stand up for the ride, and we did. I think he had a lot of fun!
We rode the trolley and got off in China Town. I have been to San Fransisco a million times but have never stepped foot in China Town. I wish I would have sooner, it was awesome. Any one who knows Eric, knows he has seriously love for Anime, particularly Naruto. Don't judge people!! We went into a small anime shop and he was in heaven!
We ate the best Chinese food I have had in my life. As you can tell from the picture above, we enjoyed it! We sat on a roof top alone, enjoy hot tea and just people watched.
This little market was so cool and had tons of neat stuff. I wish I could have shopped more but lets face it, Eric hates shopping lol!
We rode the trolley back down to the Wharf and went to the Ripley's Believe it or not museum. It was very interesting to say the least!!
We ended our night down on Pier 39 with a nice dinner over looking the water! We had such a great time and it was so nice to re-connect our love for one another! I truly cant wait for us to go back there and explore some more :)
