Song - San Francisco by Scott McKenzie
After an evening of "Pipers", the next morning when waking in San Francisco Mr. B and I decided to venture out for breakfast.
We walked over to the Ferry Building but I just had to take a photo of this vintage street car from Milan, Italy that was built in 1928! I didn't realize that SF has been refurbishing a whole fleet of vintage street cars. You can read about them HERE!
It had stormed the night before but today the weather was beautiful. It was also a Farmers Market day!
For lunch we chose to eat at The Cowgirl Creamery and this gentleman was making yummy plates of warm cheese on French bread. That brown metal contraption has a heating element in the top, so when he slides the half wheel of cheese under it, the heat melts the cheese and then he slides the wheel out and scrapes the gooey, delicious cheese onto your plate!
They have a stall of every kind of mushroom you might think of and then some! They also have shops with "pig parts", fresh Acme bread, Hog Island Oyster's, Stonehouse Olive Oil, coffee, tea, a real live book store (with our bud Taya working there!!), desserts and lots of restaurants to choose from. And best of all......delicious pork filled steamed buns! Mr. B and I brought two of those home for a late afternoon snack.....mmmmm!
And outside there were bushels of beautiful Kale. As well as Gandhi walking through the market!
And a little jazz to sit in the sunshine and enjoy.
Mr. B and I kept looking at each other and saying "Why don't we do this more often?"
As you can probably tell, fun was had by all!
