As we had been up early every day so far, we decided to sleep in and have a slow morning. It was almost 11am before we ventured out of our room!! Thomas had food a cool little cafe that we could walk to this morning. It was only a short walk away, and somewhere we hadn't explored yet. It was a quite tiny little cafe with seating out on the footpath. I had a a brioche toast with mascarpone, apples, blood orange and pecans. It was really really nice, and the coffee was by far the best we've had in the USA thus far!! We then walked across to Powell street, and up to Market street which took us down the the wharf area. It was another area we had explored; it was really spectacular, and very different to the other areas of the city.
The buildings were much bigger and much more spectacular here. The hotels were also much more expensive!! We had seen a Ripley's Believe it or Not store yesterday, so we decided to venture round to Fishermans Wharf to check it out. When we got there, we found out that you had to pay to look around; stuff that!! We found an ice cream place in one of the wharf buildings. It was amazing ice cream. Thomas rates it as some of the best he has had, which says a lot!! When then walked round to AT&T stadium, which is a big base ball stadium. We thought we'd just have a look at it from the outside, but turns out that on Sundays, they open it up to the public to have a look around. It was a pretty cool stadium. I think i would probably enjoy this as much as watching an actual base ball game!! We then walked back up to the same festival as last night for an early dinner. I had the same Hungarian flat bread as last night, however a different flavour. This one was even better!! Back to the hotel we went and picked up our two ski bags and two suitcases and lugged them a nine minute walk down to the train station, then caught the train to the airport. The check in process for Southwest flight 1255 was painless and we were there with plenty of time to spare. We boarded and left on time. The flight went great. We had three seats for the two of us, and the service was great. We got a snack and a few drinks. Excellent product, especially for the low price that we paid!!
We arrived on time at 12:45am local time. It was still over an hour dive to Fort Collins where Wesley lives, so it was 3am before we got to bed. It was a really nice day in San Francisco, great to finally get to Denver, and great to see Wesley!
