The bay area, the hilly streets and weather make San Francisco a wonderful destination. Thank you to Shaklee and the army who planned our stay. Then we branched out and walked and walked and walked. One day, Kathy logged 15,237 steps. And, of course, we loved the laughter we shared with Tara and Keith and Derek and Ariana and Ashley and Jake and Michele and Steve and Rod and Danette and Steve and Lesley and Jodi and Molly and Erica and Corina and Mika and Efrat and Joan and Rhiannon, et al.

Quack! Cheers! Here’s to water! Here’s to Shaklee and good health! Here’s to all of us inspiring and helping people live healthier lives.

 

Hotel Vitale

The Hotel Vitale was most beautiful because of where it was located. The view from the Terrace Suite where Jodi Blasquez booked the fitting was amazing.

Directly across the street from Hotel Vitale is this charming building

Immediately to the left of the charming old building is a view of the gorgeous modern Bay Bridge. It has LED lights on it at night that shimmer.

View of Embarcadero from Hotel Vitale
How I got this picture without cars and a ton of people in it is a mystery.

 

Even the street view from our 2nd floor room was interesting and gave you a sense of the big city, but it was quiet inside this window!

The Plant Cafe Organic
Great food! And I loved the buffet (furniture, that is).
I want to build one like this
for an outdoor sink
and kitchen at my house.
Using the “I” pronoun loosely.

Ghiradella - did you know the reason chocolate making started in SFO was because of the fog which was perfect for chocolate.  Who knew? Another reason to love SFO!

China Town on the tour

Our tour guide said that at the end of the day, any produce left is put into baskets and given to the poor in China Town.  Such integrity for this community!

Early Saturday morning we walked to Brenda’s French Soul Food Cafe for breakfast. The 1.4 mile walk was uphill and downhill – mostly up!! But we loved walking through the neighborhood Seven Hills!

Walking and walking and walking...ah yes!  The streets were deserted until we approached Brenda's French Soul Food Cafe and there were about 20 people on the sidewalk.  Guess what?  They were all waiting.  And it was worth the wait!  We talked with a couple from New Zealand.
