Last week Tom and I happened to catch Guy hanging out at a local restaurant, on the show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives - one that we had never tried. Pier 23, in San Francisco, just off the Embarcadero before reaching Fisherman's Wharf.
Sounded like a fun place to take Alex after his plane landed from Seattle this past Friday. It was an absolutely stellar day on the Embarcadero. Around 60 degrees - not a cloud in the sky, no wind. Felt like 70!
Here's us, waiting for a table - someone walking by was nice enough to offer to take our picture!
Here's our view, how exciting we got to sit right next to the rail. The sunshine was absolutely magical! Especially for Alex, as he has been suffering through a very long, rainy, cold, yucky Pacific Northwest winter. (Can you tell that I do not miss one single day of it?)
Alex opted for a seared ahi tuna sandwich. He claims that it was the best one that he's ever eaten.
(check out his t-shirt!)
And of course we had to have calamari.
Alex and I are off for more adventures today - a twisty drive up to Pt. Reyes for Cowgirl Cheese, and maybe a stop out at the lighthouse. Hmmm... too bad Tom went skiing.
