Continuing my Bay Area story, on Saturday we spent the day cruising all the sights in town. We started with trying to find a cool place for breakfast. We love the shows on Food Netwrok where they tell you about great places to eat that the locals know so we first headed to Dottie's Tru Blue Cafe. The line was down the block so it was definitely good but we were super hungry so we tried another spot — Luna Cafe, recommended by the show “Best Thing I Ever Ate.” They were supposed to have some killer s'mores.
We ended up with bagels and coffee and could not find the s'mores on the menu. I am not sure if we went to the wrong Luna Cafe or the owners changed…but a good thing was a super cute unique toy store next door that we all loved. Matt got a “Zoo” there-kazoo. It was pretty much in his mouth the whole rest of the trip. The neighborhood was super cute too.
“Google Maps” took us on another adventure down the vertical Divisadero Street.
We got to see homes worth millions of dollars with street parking that made me feel like I was in the upside-down part of the lop-de-loop on a roller coaster. Scary!
Xaver said he heard that Robin Williams lived in SF–maybe one of those homes was his!! There were no shortage or Range Rovers, Bentleys, and Prii (Prius plural). When we got to the bottom of the street and back on earth, we realized we went the wrong way and had to go back up Divisadero. Good grief!! I need to write Google a letter about their insane maps! LOL
We stopped at Golden Gate park and walked around the gardens and museums. We didn't know that you have to pay to get into the museums. Next time we will plan better ;) $300 or so gets a family of 4 into every museum and you could probably spend a couple days going through them all. After considering a segway tour for which Matt was not allowed we decided on the DeYoung Museum. It was the craziest building! There was lots of cool stuff to see from ancients time to modern art.
There was also a cool underground sculpture inside of a hill.
Outside was a sculpture garden with a lawn full of daisies. We let Matt run wild. He enjoyed rolling around in the flowers until he got wet from the grass..then he just ran around and picked flowers.
I already did a page about my little Matt and how he loves the flowers ;)
After Golden Gate Park, we took a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge. Always a great photo opp and awe-striking experience. I'll continue with the rest of the story tomorrow :)
