I took this picture of the Golden Gate Bridge during a business trip a couple years ago to San Francisco. The trip was a week long and I only got to leave the hotel on the last afternoon of the trip. It wasn't enough time to do much of anything, so a few co-workers and I made arrangements to take a helicopter tour of the city and visit Fisherman's Warf and Ghirardeli Square for souvenir shopping and dinner.
My favorite part of Fisherman's Warf was definitely the sea lions. I couldn't believe how many of them were hanging out there. Shopping for souvenirs was okay, but there are only so many t-shirts and coffee mugs one really needs. When I do take home a souvenir from a trip I like it to be something unique, something you cannot get at home, or something that really reminds you of your trip. I usually do get a little Christmas ornament and I always bring a little prize for my husband from business trips. This time he ended up with a Bubba Gump ping pong paddle. He loves ping pong - now he only needs a table.
I wasn't a knitter yet, so I didn't check out any local yarn pr0n on the trip to San Francisco. The funny thing is now when I go on a business trip, I search to see if any yarn shops are within a reasonable distance to my hotel. Last year before traveling to Portland, I found a two stores within striking distance from the hotel and even mapped out a walking paths to get there. I did get a museum visit in that trip too, but only because it was between the hotel and the yarn shop.
