Walking in San Francisco

Breakfast was a bit of an adventure this morning. The waiter at the breakfast bar took umbrage with me for ASKING what was on the menu when I was just supposed to “Sit down.” Maybe he thought I could read his mind! I just didn’t want to sit down before I knew what options I was sitting down to!

We can walk that! Of course we can! But somehow we were clueless that while Jones Street went STRAIGHT to our destination – it was not simply down. It was UP and DOWN and UP and DOWN. For two blocks along an UP stretch I counted 415 STEPS that were necessary to actually get to the top.

Afterward we found a simple lunch at Sutter’s Grill and walked up and down to Chinatown. We wandered our way through the streets of Chinatown and enjoyed the sights and sounds, if not always the smells.

By 6:00 we were back at the Wharf to meet up with my cousin and his partner for a Mexican dinner at Las Margarita’s.
