After saying goodbye to our Oregon friends who had an early flight out, I heard M3 utter one word, ‘Ghirardelli?’ which resulted in an excited ‘Yes!!’ from the Canadian crowd! Well…at least the mommy of the Canadian crowd. Once the little Canadian found out what Ghirardelli involved she was fully on board just like her Mama!
We jumped in the van and headed to this wonderful San Francisco landmark and as usual, the place was hopping! We placed our orders and then while Auntie M and family held our spots at a coveted table, Hannah and I went to the back to see chocolate being made. Oye! I can still smell it now!!
We tried to hit one more famous San Francisco landmark before leaving the city, Lombard Street, but it was crazy busy!
We were about 30 cars from the crest of the hill but didn’t budge more than a car length or 2 in 20 mins so decided to leave that for another trip. TubaDad was able to drive us closer and we walked to the top though and captured this beautiful picture with the Golden Gate bridge in the distance.
What a beautiful city San Francisco is! If you ever have the opportunity to visit, go for it! There is much we’d like to come back and experience another time. Riding the Trolley Cars, Lombard Street, the Wharf, a tour of Ghirardelli’s….just to name a few!
Hmmm….what are you doing next July Auntie M? Here’s hoping for another flight bump on Wednesday!
