Shadow is hanging in there, he’s been eating and roaming the house which is hopeful that he has a little more time. And I am finally done recapping last weekend after this post and what a weekend it was! After leaving the VegFest Saturday, we checked into our hotel near Union Square in San Francisco and ventured out on foot to shop and explore and eventually find dinner. We ended up having a light dinner and wine at The Mortimer Bar in Hotel Adagio which was nicely classy and not slammed packed. The lighter menu was perfect after all the eating at VegFest, I started with simple salted edamame.
And had a lovely flat bread hummus plate for my main course.
Followed by berries with a balsamic fig drizzle for a light dessert.
And the walk back to our hotel in the cool night air was refreshing after such a long day of eating! My sisters and I headed down to the hotel bar to watch the end of the Giants game and have another glass of wine.
I’m not a baseball fan, I was just there for the wine and chat. :-)
I was up by 6:30am Sunday to catch lovely sunrise pics from our room
And have a Larabar and banana for breakfast before heading to the hotel gym.
Shortly after, we checked out, packed into the minivan and headed to Pier 39 for a trip down memory lane and to enjoy the Fleet Week air shows.
I know, that’s a touristy thing to do. But we have a lot of childhood memories from the corny pier since we used to keep the family boat there and were free to roam the shops and arcades as kids.
Where the vegan option was pretty amazing – it was a butternut squash roasted veggie stack with grilled radicchio.
We continued to walk along the piers and came across the Bushman!
He hides behind tree branches, shakes them, and pops out from behind to scare tourists and watching him perform never gets old.
We wrapped up our day by touring the USS Pampanito, a World War II submarine.
I had to giggle when the woman behind me freaked out entering the sub because she could not handle the claustrophobia. It was a little tight in there!
And this does not exactly look like comfy sleeping quarters.
This was the “spacious” dining area for the captain.
When we made it out on the other side, we had a great view of the Blue Angels performing for Fleet Week.
And hung out for a bit watching the air show before making the trip home. I was exhausted when we finally got home late Sunday night, it was a packed, emotional roller coaster of a weekend!
