Tourists for the Day: A San Francisco Adventure

A couple of weeks ago (on Harry Potter’s birthday to be exact ūüėõ ), ¬†my Auntie Nelly¬†randomly suggested that we go to Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco for the day. I’m not¬†sure what prompted the idea, but I was totally down to be a tourist for the day! When my sister and I were little, Auntie Nelly would take us to San Francisco all the time. She’d drive to Pier 39 and we’d spend the day¬†walking around, looking at the shops (my go-to’s were the sea shell shop for abalone rings¬†and the chocolate store for chocolate licorice), going to Chinatown, and then ride¬†the cable car to downtown San Francisco. Ah, memories.

Along with Rory, we also brought our respective besties in tow¬†— it was kind of like a Hernandez-Ladies-Take-Their-Besties-Out day. We didn’t do anything extremely¬†touristy like go to Alcatraz (a.k.a. The Rock), take a boat tour, or whatever else is there expect for maybe eat at Boudin. If you go to that area, please don’t eat there. The Boudin¬†at the mall downtown is fine, but both of the ones located there are just ridiculous.

The last time I went to Pier 39 was about four years ago, but I don’t really recall much of it since I wasn’t there for that long. But bringing Rory this time around, I didn’t realize that people actually brought their pups with them there. Naturally, he¬†had a good time tugging on his leash and yapping anytime another canine passed by or pigeon came too close. Haha! Some butcher (I think that’s what he was…?)¬†put a big lobster in Rory’s face when we passed by a fish market, which would’ve been the perfect “Snapchat moment” as Shanice put it. Even though we had his stroller with us (hell yes, my dog has a stroller), we didn’t really get to bring him into any stores except for a couple of dog ones we came across; one of them being Yap USA which is basically like Nordstrom for dogs. I’ll write about them in a future post because we picked up some cool stuff for Rory there. ūüôā

Anyhow, I took a lot of pictures, so I thought it’d be fun to share them with you all!

Shanice and I have been talking about going back because there are some things we’d like to visit, like the Madame Tussauds was museum (we found a Morgan Freeman wax statue at some random tourist info spot)¬†and Ghirardelli¬†Square. We were there for a hot minute and didn’t even get ice cream or chocolate! Granted, it was pretty nippy out, but still. ūüėõ

cheers
