After getting off the BIG BUS – we decided to start walking !
This whole area had a carnival feel to it –
crowds of people –
shops – fun things to do and see
By this time we were hungry and looking for a place to sit down and eat !
Finally – we found a place with a view of the marina
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 !
After eating – we noticed large seals swimming in the harbor from our table
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 –
Time to venture forth
When they were here before
they found a place called Buena Vista
And of course being the Irishmen we are –
time to stop and taste it where it was invented all those years ago!
Let me tell you – it was strong and tasty !
And then CHOCOLATE –
You know those little squares of mouth watering chocolates !
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)
And once again -unplanned – another iconic discovery on our way back !
Believe you me -before my heart attack in 2013
this just may of been the reason I had that heart attack !
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 !
