on the road day 24 - did i leave my heart in san francisco?

(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding on Grooveshark
san fran. first thing in the morning we left our union square hotel for the mission and tartine. i've heard numerous, glorious raves over tartine and although it's breakfast and chocolate loaf was lovely it left me a little underwhelmed. in fact, that's how i felt about san francisico in general, a little disappointing. looking back it wasn't that the city didn't have a lot of great points, the food was good, beautiful scenery etc. etc. it was that in my mind i expected magic, that energy that so many songs were written about... but i didn't find it. maybe i needed more time in the city, someone to show me around or perhaps i should have seen my boys, the giants (congrats on the world series, you guys definitely had that magic) play... that said these are the highlights: pictures in front of all the landmarks, alcatraz and the full house street (my boyfriend could not get over the fact that people were re-enacting the famous opening scene and just freaking out over the spot in general, i on the other hand understood that it was mecca of pop culture), lunch at super duper burger and hanging around cow hollow, riding the cable cars, spotting dylan mckay's ride, and dinner at delfina.
