Photo Blog: Beautiful Day in San Francisco

This weekend, we flew up to San Francisco along with Ashley's grandma Carol to meet some friends from Italy (Stefania and Danielle) for the weekend. We weren't sure what to expect weather-wise since it changed throughout the week; but we had resigned to the fact it was going to be cloudy.

On Sunday morning after we woke at the Westin St. Francis right in the heart of Union Square, we were surprised to see the sky to be clear and blue -- and it was nice and warm outside.

We ended up spending the most of the day walking throughout the city with friend, of which the Google Maps Distance Calculator showed that we walked at least 3.906 miles for the day.

I'm guessing it was closer to 4.5 miles, but we still had a great time. Here are a few pictures from the day...

Eating your way through the Farmer's Market is always a good thing!

After lunch at the Fog City Diner, we headed to Pier 39...

Ok, so the cable car trolley broke. Bang, followed by the conductor shouting...what was that. The cable car was off the track and we decided to instead take a taxi.

After the Zombie Art exhibit opening, nothing like a dinner at the Cheesecake Factory at the top of Macy's in Union Square!
