We managed to tear ourselves away from the Presidio in order to head over toward Fisherman’s Wharf to get a bite of early dinner.
Whew, this is trafficus maximus!
Robyn wanted to save us all from the effort to include Ross & Ryan in a restaurant in such a crowd, and offered to stay in the car with them while Jared and I ate somewhere.
The traffic was so bad, we ended up doing kind of a Chinese fire drill at a stop light: Jared and I jumped out of the front doors and walked away, and Robyn climbed forward into the driver’s seat!
She ended up parked a 100 yards from Pier 39 in a pull-out marked for tour buses!
Jared and I headed to a highly rated seafood restaurant on Pier 39, were promptly seated and served an excellent meal…with a view of the setting sun.
On our way back to the car, we stopped for a lovely round loaf of Boudin sourdough bread…a custom Robyn began 45 years ago when she was a student in nearby Angwin.
The traffic had calmed somewhat, and we headed over to Ghirardelli Square. A curb parking spot opened up directly in front of Ghirardelli Chocolate On-the-Go, a great little shop that has a somewhat limited menu and only outdoor seating…and no line to order!
Oh my….chocolate heaven!
How can you top a day like that?
Ummm, our hotel is north…across…well, you know….
