If You're Going to San Francisco...


*rachel, melanie, me- February 1993

... Be sure to 1. ride the trolly, 2. go to Fisherman's Wharf to see the sea lions & have some clam chowder in a bread bowl, 3. tour ghiradelly's chocolate factory/shop (they give free samples!), 4. SHOP- most of my favorite stores can be found near Union Square with 2 or more floors

* waiting in line to get back on the trolly... yes she has 3 jackets on

I love San Francisco! It has more of an east coast/almost euro feel, than a California vibe. Plus the benefit of being WAY closer. My mom used to take us on girl's trips to visit her sisters in Newman, CA (a small town 45 min. away from S.F.) when we were younger.

The day after our snow trip to Yosemite, the whole Witten family (my mom's side) spent the day in S.F. It was so much fun! I vote for doing Christmas in Newman every year. Also, I would like to thank my wonderful aunts, Cathy & Terri, for living up there and giving us a great excuse to have such fun vacations in northern California.

SF is one awesome town. So fun to visit. We used to do girls trips there too when I was little . . . matching sweatshirts and all. I'm glad you had a fun trip. Looks like a blast.
BTW, LOVE your cute red coat!
