[last days] colourful San Francisco

The last few days in San Francisco where beautiful! The sun was shining as we wondered Fisherman's Wharf and walked The Haight Ashbury. It continued to shine as we went back in time at Alcatraz and at a pub as we cheered on the 49er's football match on a big screen. 
Some of The Stachel's Instagram snap shots above show what a colourful and creative city San Francisco is!

We had some of the best meals in the last few days- a scrumptious breakfast pizza at La Boulange bakery on Union Street, some amazing tortelloni pasta at The Stinking Rose and the best coffee and cake at Caffe Greco on Columbus Avenue! A visit to Ghirardelli Square involved a burger and shake at retro inspired Lori's Diner, a yummy lemon cupcake at Kara's Cupcakes and afternoon tea at the Crown and Crumpet tea salon. (not all in one day) Of course we had to pick up some famous chocolate at Ghirardelli Chocolate Company for the family.

Window shopping along The Haight Ashbury was very colourful! Lots of vintage clothing and music - the window display's were very imaginative!
