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

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 !

Papa’s World – ” I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO”

GOOD MORNING

On our list – SAN FRANCISCO – and we made it !

The Golden Gate Bridge

We left in traffic in the early morning –

and arrived still in traffic crossing the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE in FOG !

We had a destination – a parking garage –

But it was surrounded by one way streets !

So – drove around and around –

passing our way in a few times

because we could not get to it.

Parking garage

The plus to all that was the garage was right across the street from Pier 39 !

Alcatraz

We also had a view of Alcatraz in the bay.

We choose not to go there as Buck and Cindy had been there

and I wanted to spend more time in the city !

Pier 39

We walked and walked Pier 39 –

NOTE – we left Sacramento in 100 plus temps

had to have light jackets as it only got to 64 and foggy.

great place to people watch and also full of unique places.

If you go here – take it all in and search out a good place to eat !

San Fran sky line

It also was close to where we bought tickets

for a 2 1/2 hour bus tour ( you can hop on and off )

we selected to stay on and then walk when we got back.

At end of Pier 39

I also recommend you walk to the end of Pier 39

where you can see hundreds of huge Harbor Seals

all barking and moving around on floating docks!

End of Pier 39 and Harbor Seals
