Transparency, Elevators and Oysters

I'm going to be honest with you. San Francisco does not deserve its own post. Have you ever asked your parents or grandparents about a photo or a souvenir and watched them get this dreamy look on their face while they tell you the story behind it? Maybe a long forgotten memory. My dad has a key on his keychain from the room he and my mom stayed in at their honeymoon. I love that. And that is what this blog is for me. So while I didnt steal a hotel key (trust me, I wanted to!), I have a photo of it. And that's why I keep plugging on this blog, and why I'm not leaving San Francisco out of my post about our trip.

On the way home from ave of giants, I wanted to stop in San Francisco. We had about 24 hours left and Timothy had never been before. We don't really stay in hotels a lot. Usually our trips involve camping or crashing at a friends house, so I was really excited to use the last of our money (haha yeah theres more transparency) to get a nice-ish hotel in SF and do some touristy things. So we used Hotel Tonight again and we found a room at the White Swan Inn. This ended up being one of my favorite parts of the trip. I mean how rad is the room? The hotel has one of the old elevators where you have to close the gate yourself and hold down a button to move. We even had a fireplace that it was way too warm to use!

Before we left for home, Timothy and I walked through Union Sqaure and headed down to Fishermans Wharf, and the Ferry Building and of course we had to get oysters and chowder. We decided on Hog Island and we could not have been happier.


I'd call this trip a success!
