Here is a picture of me...yikes! I am standing in front of my most favorite restaurant in the world. It has yummy food, but that's not the only reason I love it. When I was a child my parents used to take me to San Francisco for something to do on the weekend. I LOVE San Francisco. It is so beautiful and has so many fond memories attached to it for me. Anyway, when I was young I was the only kid at home. My brothers and sister are much older than me. On special occasions we would have lunch or dinner in San Francisco at the Fisherman's Grotto in Fisherman's Wharf. This was the fanciest restaurant that I ever went to as a child. It has white table clothes and the waiters are very formal. It has dark carpets and lots of wood trim. It also has awesome views of the SF bay. Just stunning on a clear day.
This place is just a few blocks from Fisherman's Grotto. This store is the cornerstone of Ghirardelli Square. This is a wonderful shopping center in an old brick building. You can watch them make chocolate in this store. And you can eat chocolate in this store! Yummy!! Ghirardelli Square is another place with a ton of memories attached to it. I love this place!
These photos are from a fabulous weekend trip Hubby and I took in January 2007. We had lunch at Fisherman's Grotto with my niece, she's a year older than me, and my brother, he's eleven years older than me. After lunch we all walked over to Ghirardelli Square and wandered around. That was a special trip for me, so many old memories remembered and so many new memories made.
What a sentimental old sap I am!
