More Adventures with the Girls in San Francisco

After many traveling turmoils (Mainly Sue and Liz getting bumped up to travel a whole 12 hours earlier than expected), we all made it safely to San Franciso and were settling into our room to start the adventure before Beading by the Bay 2013 starts.

When Sharon and I arrived, Liz and Sue had already been in Burlingame and had shopped a little.  So they took us to this crazy little shop filled with vintage jewelry and hats.  Sue looked good in every single hat she tried on, but room to bring it back.

In China Town, Liz and I found this display of beaded purses.  We were drooling.  Sales clerk asked if we wanted to handle them but the prices made us back off.  We did though gets lots of ideas.

We had to wait a little while for our sight seeing bus to pick us up.  It was amazing to just stand still in a busy urban downtown area that was alive with sounds, smells, and people just living. 

Beginning our sight seeing trip.  We got just a little taste of this thriving exciting city.  We decided to come back hopefully next year and explore more of the city we only got glimpses of.

Not only were we climbing this steep hill, but both of us had at least one bag of goodies we'd picked up at China Town.  Plus we were in a rush to head back down so we wouldn't miss that last sight seeing bus.

No time to stop off to actually walk on the famous orange Golden Gate Bridge.  Next year, we want to drive across it to see what is on the other side.

Right before the batteries died on me, I took a shot of this amazing building.  Sharon and I would have loved getting out and walking around the grounds, but no time.
