7 Days 3 Cities

We had a lot of fun traveling this last week. We first flew to Oakland CA and met up with Kelsey and Joey. They had been on a 4,000 mile road trip to check out Law Schools that Joey had applied too. We went into San Francisco the first 2 days. Sunday we attended a Samoan Ward in San Leandro. It was really fun. They were so welcoming to us and it was so amazing to listen to them sing in Samoan. They harmonize so beautifully.

We ate lunch at Tony's Pizza in North Beach. We had delicious pizza and brussel sprouts for a side dish. I highly recommend it and would go there again. It added to the experience to sit out on a sidewalk table. It was nice they had heaters above us because it was really cold until the sun came out.

This beautiful church was across the street from where we ate lunch.

After lunch we drove to Lincoln Park and hiked a trail down to the beach. We had beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the ocean. It was extremely windy which made the waves big and turbulent.


We walked our legs off the next day. We walked a total of 8 miles. We started at the Ferry Building and walked along the wharf to Sports Basement which is at the Presidio near the Golden Gate Bridge. I love walking there. It is the best way to experience the city and the beautiful views.

Tuesday we flew to Seattle. It snowed that night and we woke up to this. Luckily we didn't have to do a lot of driving. All the travel advisories said not to go on the roads unless you had a 4 wheel drive vehicle. We had rented a Camry which handled it quite well. We only slid a couple times on our way to the airport. I was totally amazed to find out our flight was going to be on time.

This is a picture of the runway in the background. We got on the plane on time but we had to wait 45 minutes for them to De Ice the plane before we could take off. The take off was perfect and we had a surprisingly beautiful flight to Oakland, CA and then onto Ontario, CA.
As much fun as it is to travel, it was so good to get home.
