We ate our way through San Francisco

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.

Biking across the GG Bridge was a fun experience. The blue blur is Erin.

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.

    Erin!!! I miss you so much! I loved reading your blog today and looking at the pictures. How in the world did you get that bumble bee in flight? You are SO talented. So many of the pictures just made me gasp. Oh, and the In and Out Burger! Woo hoo! Those amazing huge redwoods…wow, I feel almost like I took a mini-vacation with you guys this morning. It looks like you’re both having an amazing time so far and you’re doing such a great job keeping all of us watching up to date! Thank you! Love you, my friend.

    Looks like a grand time. I see you went to Botanical Gardens, a favorite of the Filosi family. We saw a black bear driving home on 101 today!
