ferry outing to San Francisco

Clover got her wish to take the ferry. We had not taken it to S.F. in a while and it really is a fun way to travel. We got an order of mushroom curry from Delica and then took it down Embarcadero a ways by the large bow and arrow sculpture to sit and eat in the sun. The weather was beautiful and only chilly in the shade. We ended up back at the Ferry building at the Market Bar for happy hour. Clover drank a six dollar orange juice in under a minute feasted on bread and butter but it was totally worth sitting out on the patio people watching and sipping a carafe of Pinot with maiki. Like a real date. <3

We stayed at Hotel Tomo. Both the elevator and our room had this really cool mural.

The room was cozy and colorful. We did our best to share the big king sized bed.

We looked around in lots of different shops. We got Sakura pastels, a furoshiki wrapping cloth and a bucket hat. A little something for each one of us!

We had tea service at Crown and Crumpet. Emma ended up getting apple cider that was served with whipped cream. I would love to make that at home. <3

Afterwards we were happy and full from tea, sweets and little sandwiches. It was all so good!

Picked up a Christmas cake for home. Every good trip is all about the food and this time we ate like kings. Would definitely go back to Dosa and Udon Mugizo!!!
