After a month of weekends getting settled and unpacking, we finally made it into San Francisco (“The City” as it’s called around here) for a little fun. The Bay Bridge was partially closed, so we decided to take BART into San Francisco, grab some lunch, and visit the San Francisco Bay Aquarium. Lately, Avery’s been very interested in fish (“shish”), so we figured she’d love seeing some real, live “shish”.
Avery enjoyed the ride on the train into San Francisco and was very well-behaved. She made friends and spent most of the ride playing peak-a-boo with a lady seated across the aisle from us. By the time we arrived, they were good friends.
After we got off the train, we headed down to the Ferry Building (a must-visit if you’re in SF) and had lunch. We ate at Boccalone, which was one of the places that Mom and I had been looking forward to trying out. It didn’t disappoint – those Food Network guys know what they’re doing.
After lunch and a little fun time on the pier, it was clear that what Avery wanted more than “shish” was to run around and have fun. We opted against going to the aquarium and headed across the Embarcadero to the park, enjoyed the weather, and let Avery explore.
Great day – the shish will have to wait for another time.
