Papa’s World – Chocolate – GHIRARDELLI – Irish Coffee

Walking San Francisco

After getting off the BIG BUS – we decided to start walking !

Walking Pier 39
Pier 39
Pier 39

This whole area had a carnival feel to it –

crowds of people –

shops – fun things to do and see

FOOD

By this time we were hungry and looking for a place to sit down and eat !

Signs Signs – everywhere signs

Finally – we found a place with a view of the marina

Pier Market
Water front

Now – we could eat and plan what to do next.

This was the second time in San Francisco for Buck and Cindy

but the first time for us

So – there were places they knew

and we decided to try and find them !

Our view
Good company

After eating – we noticed large seals swimming in the harbor from our table

Pier 39 Harbor Seals

When we went outside – we could hear the seals

so we walked down the pier

and came to floating docks

Quite a crowd attraction and there were more in the water swimming

and playing –

watching the seals

Time to venture forth

When they were here before

they found a place called Buena Vista

Buena Vista Irish Coffee

And of course being the Irishmen we are –

time to stop and taste it where it was invented all those years ago!

IRISH COFFEE

Let me tell you – it was strong and tasty !

GHIRARDELLI

And then CHOCOLATE –

GHIRARDELLI

You know those little squares of mouth watering chocolates !

THE STORE

Well – this place was chocolate heaven

and had FIVE ICE CREAM SUNDAE STORES !!!!!

Now – Sherry will tell you she wanted a Sundae

but the rest of us did not !

That is true – only because we had just eaten lunch

and had IRISH COFFEE

I really wanted one

but I did not think it would settle quite right with me !

This whole plaza seemed to belong to the candy company.

And it was really nice with live music vendors playing

A lot of candy and some of it was free !

But on to the next stop ( we did bring some home)

Walking back toward the harbor

And once again -unplanned – another iconic discovery on our way back !

THE ORIGINAL
KRISPY KREME
San Francisco
1937

Believe you me -before my heart attack in 2013

this just may of been the reason I had that heart attack !

BOY OH BOY !!!!!!!

I was so tempted

they looked and smelled good

but not one of us

had one !!!!!

Now I can say I have been where it all started

both GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATES

and KRISPY KREME’S

Unexpected but this whole trip has been that way !
