Annual San Francisco Trip

The first weekend of December is our annual San Francisco trip. My Nina charter's a bus and it takes no time to fill it up. In fact you have to act fast or your spot could be filled. The trip starts out with mimosa's and a chance to win back your $30 dollars that covered the bus fare. It is a full day of serious shopping and by the end of the day I am exhausted!

Seriously ~ The day starts with getting up early to get ready and catch the bus at 7:30 A.M. I walk through the doors of my home 15 minutes after 10:00 P.M. Although I am tired and it is no sooner over, I am looking forward to next year!

I liked how the sun was shining on the water as we were driving on the San Francisco Bay Bridge.

The bus dropped us off at the Union Square. I have to take a picture of her every time although she never changes.

This man had the coolest pants on.

They were covered with patches and he had a jacket to go with them.

We enjoyed this saxophone's solo. He played Christmas music beautifully.

This was my daughter-n-law Nessa's first time to go with us on our annual trip. As we waited for my sister to purchase her things at the OLD NAVY register, we amused ourselves with Nessa acting like one of the mannequins in the window. We laughed uncontrollably at the expressions of people walking by as they noticed her blowing kisses and realized that she wasn't one.

We went to my favorite store ANTHROPOLOGIE.

The Christmas tree at San Francisco's Pier 39 where we enjoyed our dinner and a coffee to cap off our day. My sister Jessica is in the darker right hand corner of this picture.

Do you have a special place where you do your shopping?

    Ahhh... so you are one of those guys I see walking around looking so patient and a smile on your face with your gal. Sweet ~
    I am not surprised!


  3. Her wish is my command. Besides we guys are good hunters. She tells me to look for things and occasion, I find them.
