San Francisco: Not Portland, But It’ll Do

I will post pictures of our remodeled guest bathroom at some point. I promise. We still have lots of finishing details to do though, ranging from plumbing the sink to buying new towels.

One reason the bathroom is still a ways from being legit done is we are basically jet setters [ha!] and swung out to San Francisco for the fastest trip ever. We landed Friday morning and left Sunday night. Whew!

My summary of San Francisco: It’s no Portland. But it was pretty nice.

We did so much in our three days there.

We did all the touristy stuff in one day, like visit the Golden Gate.

I can spend forever in a coffee shop like this one. If I hadn’t been hungry for lunch I likely would have just sat here all day.
