Meg in the City-Day Three

Sunday, Kimmie had another fun day plan.   After a wonderful breakfast, we got ready and headed out to Fisherman's Wharf.  We started with lunch at Hardrock Cafe.  Kimmie had found a great buy one get one free coupon for hamburgers.  After lunch, we walked around some, admired the sea lions at the pier and then found our dock for our harbor cruise.

Kimmie had found a really great deal for a harbor tour on  It was a 90 minute tour through the harbor on double mast sail boat.  We got to see Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge, and a great view of the city.  It was a bit chilly on the water, but not too bad as I was prepared.  Although, a beanie/tobagan/hat (whatever you call it) would have helped some, both with the cold ears and the crazy hair.

Next on the itenerary was Ghiradelli Square.  It wasn't a bad walk at all from the pier and the sun felt great.  While there, we had some great cupcakes at Kara's Cupcakes.  It was the best strawberry cupcake I've had.  We also stopped by the Ghiradelli store (of course) to pick up some of the new Caramel Latte chocolate bars.  Yum!

Wonderful Organic Strawberry Cream Cupcake

Our last stop for the day was at the Japanese Tea Gardens in Golden Gate Park.  There we admired the sites, took lots of pictures and enjoyed some tea.

My tea and rice cakes (I think)
