San Francisco 2015

Hey everyone! How's your Summer going? Mine has been super busy between work, volunteering, and (of course!) blogging. In June I went to San Francisco for a few days and I took tons of pictures. Lately I have been feeling a bit nostalgic over my trip and I also wanted to share my pictures with everyone. I seem to blog a lot about adventures so here is another one...

Lombard Street

This road is the World's Most Curviest, Crookedest, Windiest Road also known as Lombard Street. Many people live in the beautiful houses on this street but they all have to be skilled at parking their cars because the road is on downhill slant along with being in a squiggle shape.


I went to this candy store called Sugarfina. I was super excited to see this store because:
 1) We don't have this store on the East Coast 
2) I saw this store in Trisha Paytas and Shane Dawson's Vlogs (two famous youtubers).

Sugarfina is expensive for a candy store but I really liked their choice of gummies and chocolates. I am totally obsessed with gummy candies.

We bought Heart Shaped Gummies and Bacon flavored Chocolate Pretzels.

More of San Francisco
My parents and I went out to this burger place called Super Duper Burger. The place kind of reminded me of Shake Shack (a series of burger places in New York). Their menu consisted of a variety of burgers, veggie burgers, fries, and salads. For some reason I felt healthier eating a veggie burger in California rather than in New York.

There were these heart statues covered in polaroid pictures around Union Square for the foundation Hearts for San Francisco. Each heart was a bit different but I found them so pretty.

We took the a train to another part of San Francisco and that's where I saw these colorful houses similar to the houses featured in the 90's show Full House. These houses were in the Mission District of San Francisco.

Pier 39
Pier 39 is filled with tourist stores, restaurants, an aquarium, and a dock filled with sea lions. I went to the aquarium with my mom because I really like marine animals and it looked really cool.
This is one of the sea creatures that I saw in the aquarium. They had tons of sea stars, fish, crabs, and turtles. One of the workers who was in college showed me a sea star that was eating a live fish and it was one of the weirdest things I have ever seen.

San Francisco was colder than I expected it to be. It was 50 degrees there which is different for me because it was 80 degrees in Los Angeles (the other place I went after San Francisco) and New York. In the picture I have my blue/green hair that I miss so much.

Pier 39 has a bunch of floating docks side by side designated only for sea lions to lay on. These sea lions lay out and I heard that sometimes there can be up to 100 sea lions at the pier.

Muir Woods National Monument
This national park is filled with Redwood Trees that are huge and some of the biggest trees in the world. My family and I took a private bus along with 4 other people around San Francisco and visited this monument. It was so beautiful and if we had more time I would have loved to hike the trails.

We went up into the hills outside of San Francisco. The scenery was so beautiful and I took so many pictures on my camera.

We crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and it was cooler seeing it in person rather than just seeing it in a photograph.  Our bus unfortunately didn't stop so this was one of the better shots I got.
This picture is taken in seaside town called Sausalito. It was a very quiet town and while I was there I got a San Francisco sweatshirt.


Thanks for reading! In the comments write where are some places that you would want visit in the future.
