San Fransisco Wharf

This past September I had the opportunity to take the most amazing trip to California.  We started in San Fransisco and worked our way down the coast and eventually ended in L.A.  It.  Was.  Fabulous!  It encompassed any type of vacation destination I could have ever dreamed of, we hit a couple of big cities, spent a few nights in a National Park, and enjoyed a couple beautiful beach side towns.  Our hotel in San Fransisco made their own French macaroons daily, so we enjoyed some delicious sweets everyday, they are pictured above in front of the view I had from my hotel window.

Our first day in The City was spent riding the trolley to the wharf, and enjoying the sea salted air and sea side shops.  We made sure we got the best seats on the trolley, hanging out the side.

We spent quite a while hanging out with the sea lions on Pier 39, they are hilarious.

After our strenuous day of strolling the pier and enjoying the shops, we had to stop by Ghirardelli's to get a couple of their famous ice cream sundaes.  I got a decadent chocolate peanut butter sundae while my dad got a refreshing chocolate covered strawberry sundae.  Both were absolutely delicious.

After our healthy lunch, we headed back to the hotel for a little nap before dinner.  Tonight we walked to this adorable, little ally full of restaurants to find a place to eat for dinner.  After browsing through our options we decided on this wonderful french restaurant.  We sat outside and enjoyed the festive atmosphere and the warm city air. Everything we all ordered was so delicious! 

For dessert I ordered their sample dish of french macaroons, they are my favorite cookie and I can never get enough of them!

One of the macaroons was peach flavored and it was THE BEST MACAROON IN THE WORLD.  I couldn't even handle how delicious that little cookie was, I doubt I will ever find another macaroon that is as delectable as that little guy was.
