Chowder time!!

Published: August 4th 2012EDIT THIS ENTRY

Up and out bright and early today 😊 We took a walk through Chinatown to Downtown, a very peculiar experience. Our first stop was Union Square with all the big shops, unfortunately we had to postpone a visit to the Cheese Cake Factory having just filled up on bagels at the hostel, but we are definitely going back!

Then we hit pier 39 – Waw! With chowder, sea lions and chocolate shops at the plenty, this city was certainly off to a flying start! Even Annie tried the clam chowder and surprised us both by liking it and helped Scott with finishing it off. We soon realised why the piers were so bustling with people; anywhere with views of Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge and entertaining sea lions would pull the crowds in.

We came across a vintage arcade down at Fisherman’s Warf, where one of the machines revealed Annie had a stronger grip than Scott (which will come in handy if strangling is required). With his masculinity bruised he had to prove himself superior by defeating the super-human arm wrestler which nearly broke Annie’s wrist (shame there’s no picture of that)!

Back at the hostel we scoffed our free dinner with the chef and swiftly retreated back to our room for an early night ready for Alcatraz in the morning.

We were unable to buy a sim card as the mobile phone is blocked but we will keep blogging every day and will skype soon!

Hope everyone is ok back home!

Peace out from San Fran! x x x
