Thanks to everyone’s suggestions (including some write-ins over email), I had a great time in San Francisco!
Thursday night Matt and Marta surprised me with pickup from the airport and a late night Thai food run.
On Friday, I hit up Blue Bottle Coffee and got some personal stuff taken care of. Then rode the cable car up to the Cable Car Museum. I walked down to Fisherman’s Wharf by way of Lombard Street. I played in the Musee Mecanique, “one of the world’s largest privately owned collections of mechanically operated musical instruments and antique arcade machines” — also known as an engineers dream. I took the trolley and then switch to a bus to meet Audrey and Griffin for dinner at the food trucks.
Matt cajoled me into running a trail race Saturday morning. While he and his cohorts opted for the half-marathon, I stuck with the 5 mile and placed first in Males 20-24.
I can only presume this is a typo since I’m actually 27, but they’re sending me an award ribbon!
Taco’s and late night apres dinner beer and desert conversations with some of Matt’s friends rounded off the evening.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. But to quote the former governor, I’ll be back.
