San Francisco & Michelle's Wedding - Day 5

We made it to the top of this hill and I couldn't be any happier. First off, this meant there would be no more walking up hill. Secondly, it was going to be all downhill from here. But the best part is that we could stand in the middle of the street and take a selfie with the places that we came from. They seem like they are so far away. And they are. Trust me, I know. I made that walk with Jenny Reck and I would make it again if given the chance. I won't let anything stop me.






We did have to go back home today but our flight wasn't until around 5pm or something. This gave us a little time to explore the area around out hotel. By looking at a map, we found out we were close to Lombard Street. So we figured we would walk there. Uphill. Yeah. Great decision that was. 
















This is the view from the hotel window that I mentioned on the previous page. And this room was like $120 too. I wonder how much the rooms with a good view cost. More than I can afford. But this did allow me to see that there was an In-N-Out Burger. So I guess that means this view is priceless.


From up here we got a good look at The Golden Gate Bridge. Over the course of the past couple of days, we have seen this majestic beauty from multiple angles. Maybe it's the lack of a girlfriend or maybe it's the booze talking, but this beauty looks good. Up and down, left and right, close up and from far away. I love the shit out of that bridge. And I don't care who knows. I have no shame.
I'll talk more about Lombard Street in a bit, but for now I'll focus on the trek it took to get there. Fisherman's Wharf (where our Holiday Inn was) is right near the bay. If you aren't familiar with San Francisco, let me tell you that it is a very hilly city. Of course near the water it is at a lower elevation but once you go inland, you go uphill. As a person of size (which is a P.C. way of saying fat), this proved to be rather difficult for me. But I still was able to do it. I haven't ballooned past a point of physical activity... yet. Jenny was patient with me as I used the "let's stop to take pictures" as an excuse to catch my breath. But the more me walked, the more it was worth it.






























I like San Francisco a whole lot. Of all of the cities that I have visited, this one probably has the most character. I don't want to start a fight with every other city that I've been to, so please just settle down. But how can you look at pictures like these and not feel something? But now is not the time for comparison. We have reached our destination. Lombard Street. Oh there you are.
