It is no suprise if you have seen any of our pictures from previous trips, we like to eat. Yesterday was no exception. We finally made our way off the windy Highway 1 into San Francisco. Downtown we stopped at the Fishermans Wharf for a crab sandwich (only enjoyed by me), up to Chinatown for some authentic orange chicken, through the Italian district for gelato, and finished with good old California In and Out Burger (animal style, again only me). Suprisingly after all of that we felt great which was probably due 3.5 mile ride across the Golden Gate Bridge and back followed by a 4 hr walking tour of the city.
We are starting to understand the potential problems that come with not planning. Last night we called Yosemite to see if the had any camp spots on Saturday or Sunday (yes, we realize the weekend is not exactly the best time to roll into a national park, but…) and came up with a big NO. We’re adjusting accordingly. Also, we showed up a little later than expected to our hopeful campground last night (due to all the eating we were doing in SF) and were greeted with the FULL CAMPGROUND sign. Thankfully, we pulled over to see what our next move was going to be and the park host came up and asked us if we wanted to camp there tonight. We instantly said Yes! He had one site left and we took it, even though he called it a “bastard site”. We really didn’t care.
We are not sure when our next post will be or where our next bed will be but are looking forward to both.
**also we fixed the link to the pictures in the Uncharted Territory post. Here it is as well.
