Our San Francisco trip is nearly over, but first I must tell you about the last couple of days sightseeing in the city in San Francisco – Out & About (Part 3), and catch up on Part 1 and Part 2 perhaps as well.
We decided to have one final breakfast at Phlox Commons in our hotel, you can’t go wrong with their menu and the staff are super friendly. The weather was terrible, torrential downpours pretty much forecast for the whole day so we took this opportunity to stay indoors and head to The Walt Disney Family Museum in Presidio Park.
The Walt Disney Family Museum tells the story of Walt’s life from the history of his family before his birth right through to his death and his legacy. As a film fan, and Disney lover I knew we couldn’t leave San Fran without visting the museum and seeing how he bought to life such famous characters as Mickey Mouse, created animations like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Dumbo, and envisioned such a magical theme park. (Tip: we were at the museum ~3hrs so if you do visit make sure you leave enough time to see everything).
Next stop seeing as it was still raining was Macy’s in Union Square to stock up on some wardrobe necessities before heading back to the UK. Once we were shopped out we decided to head the departments stores very own Wine Bar on the 5th floor for a cheese board plus a wine for me and a beer for CLB.
Whilst we were dining I checked the San Francisco Giant’s Twitter page to check that evening’s baseball game was still on, alas it was not due to the rain. We were so looking forward to watching an American sport, getting a corn dog and a big foam hand but the weather was not on our side. So we set about seeing what other events were on that evening and eventually stumbled across a comedy night at the Punch Line Comedy Club and pretty much booked it on the spot. We decided to head back to the hotel for a quick rest and a change of clothes before heading for dinner at Wago Sushi then over to the Punch Line where Beth Stelling was headlining with 3 support acts. We’d booked a table ahead of time for a few dollars extra and with table service compulsory we bedded in for the evening, laughed our heads off and drunk a few drinks. (Tip: the venue was sold out by the time the evening came around so book ahead for guaranteed entry).
Our final day had arrived but luckily we had until 2pm to finish exploring the city so after a quick breakfast bagel we headed in the direction of Mrs Doubtfire’s house and the Party of Five house before taking a walk down to Crissy Fields, along the beach and to the viewing point for the Golden Gate Bridge. Stunning or what:
We’d pre-booked a Super Shuttle back to the airport before grabbing a late lunch at Tapas and Taps then boarding the flight home to London.
This post concludes the San Francisco series (sad face) but I’ll be back soon with more adventures 😁 and you can also click about my site for other write ups.
