Baby Moon - Part 1

A couple of months ago, a company that my firm (in particular, my section) hires to handle our noticing needs and serve as our claims agent in certain cases contacted a few attorneys that had worked on this big case with them last year.  They were hosting a small group at the 2010 US Open in Pebble Beach and wanted to invite us to join in on the fun.  Basically, everything except airfare would be covered.  At first, I wrote this off as a fun business development activity that we wouldn't be participating in.  Then, I thought twice about that--I wanted to take a Babymoon with hubs and this could be the perfect excuse.  After checking airfare and talking it over, we decided to go for it (when else would we have this opportunity!) and the trip out west was quickly finalized.

We flew into San Francisco on Sunday, June 13th, dropped off our bags at our hotel in the Embarcardero area, and ventured out to explore the city.


We walked down to the Ferry Building...



and hopped on this old-fashioned street car to head down to Fisherman's Wharf.


We stopped at Pier 39...


walked around where we could see Alcatraz...


and Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.


We hung out with the Sea Lions for a bit...


(this big guy reminded us of our huggable Winston)


and grabbed a clam chowder snack.  Yum!


We picked up a cable car at Ghirardelli Square...


and rode it through the city making our way back to our hotel.



After resting and cleaning up at the hotel...


we went to dinner at Boulevard--very cute bistro that was delish!


View of the Bay Bridge from Boulevard.

The next morning we walked to a bakery across the street for breakfast and took a long walk through the city before picking up our rental car.


We passed through Chinatown...


and ended in Union Square.

After a long wait at the rental car company...


we were off on our drive to Carmel.
  
(We tried to go to Muir Woods first, but it was so busy and crowded, we skipped it).

Next up: Carmel & the US Open!
