Heaven.
Is this because of my comment about how I gagged when I mistakenly ordered a Gimlet instead of a Gibson?

I'm glad you liked it. I'll stick with my savory drinks, thank you very much!

Your anniversary dinner looks amazing. What a perfect meal. And you prepared it again at home. I am so impressed! And I love a meal where the food is fabulous and the servers are very not pretentious.

The farmer's market also looks amazing. You got such beautiful pictures of all the yummy produces and goodies. What a great way to spend the morning while the boys were all still sleeping.

San Francisco really looks like a fabulous trip. You really MUST help me plan my DL trip. I'm actually thinking winter 2015 - Feb or March, because that's what works best schedule wise. I hope its not too cold.

Keep the updates coming.

Boulevard looks amazing! SF is on our must do list as we haven't been as a couple in almost 20 years!

The farmer's market looks like a little slice of heaven.

Your anniversary dinner looked amazing. We like to find fun places like that to eat at when we travel. But I think I would have had some sarcastic remarks to say to that woman. Yes, the older I get things just pop out of my mouth that I know shouldn't be said, but, what can I say. I don't like rude people.

What a wonderful Farmer's Market. That looks like a fun time and I would love to see it. And the flowers were beautiful.

Looking forward to the next leg of your journey!

It was not sweet in the slightest- I can't stand syrupy drinks! It was light and refreshing- LOVED it!










OMG! Now that I know what this is, I applaud you!

I know- it was de bomb, mon! Did you know they offer flights of Gran Marnier at Artist Point and a few others? Really need to get on that sometime....

I have to find PIO's pics, I would love to see that!

Duck, or lamb? I just came over from your other TR, so that made me laugh out loud!

That dinner looked fantastic, as well as that market! How great! The tiny one we have in town has more old ladies selling crochet doilies than any truly good stuff. I almost never go.

Can't wait to see how the rest of the trip plays out!

No relation.

Looks like you both had an amazing anniversary dinner, and I'm so glad it was such a great evening! The atmostphere in the restaurant looked really nice. And we all know how rare it is to get a date night!

Hi Ellen!

Wow - the “happy hour” food offerings at your hotel are just phenomenal - really enough for dinner, which is so cool.

So jealous that you went to Boulevard! I wish I had been a little more into doing special things for myself when I lived in SF (and was making the big private-law-firm money - what the HECK was I thinking????).

Mrs. Snotty Stuck-Up and Oblivious to any other humans Snotterson sounds freakin’ awesome though! So glad that the actual restaurant staff were just as they should be - you know, like humans!

The cucumber gimlet sounds divine - I’m SO glad you were finally ordering a cocktail again - it had been FAR too long!!!

GAH - your meal is killing me!!! So amazing! So special! Someday when I am 100 years old and my child is grown…..

Ugh - the farmers’ market - how amazing! Mmm - the pic of the cowgirl creamery cheese is making me hungry…..

Mmm - waffles….

The ferry building actually just sprang back to life (reopened) when I lived in SF. Pretty sure a lot of this amazing stuff was not even available then. Thinking we may need to spend some serious time there this summer.

OMG! So excited for Yosemite! I was loving SF so much I forgot that there were other destinations!

The tour looked like a lot of fun.
Happy Belated Birthday.
The park during the Segway tour was gorgeous.
I can assure you the Parisians we met in Paris were nicer than most Americans I meet but I do hate rude people no matter where they are.
That food looked delicious.
MMM waffles.
All caught up.

I just got caught up on your latest updates. You got so many great pictures. Love the Segway tour ones, that did look like a nice tour.

That is a great Farmers market they have there, so many choices.
