After a packed day in the city with our visiting family members, we woke up early the next day to do it all again! We fueled up at the Ferry Building with Blue Bottle coffee and Cowgirl Creamery breakfast sandwiches before hitting the Golden Gate Bridge for the Marin Headlands.
We took the scenic Conzelman Road once we exited the Bridge so that we had views like this looking back at the city:
The plan for the morning was to hike Hill 88 in the Marin Headlands. I had hiked those trails before with my family, but it was a first for Will, his brother, and our sister-in-law. I like this route because it has a nice balance of views: Marin and the Bay, the Pacific Ocean, Rodeo Beach, San Francisco and the Bridge.
Some of the views:
We couldn't hike in the Headlands without taking G and A to Sausalito to try Fish afterwards. The guys went a bit overboard (ordered 75% of the menu), but we relaxed, enjoyed the sunny weather, and schemed about our next trip together until the food had disappeared.
Surprisingly, we eventually did get an appetite for dinner later that night, and Delfina Pizzeria served as an excellent spot to close the weekend together.
This weekend gave us confidence in our knowledge of the city--some of the history, some well-known favorites, some hidden finds, and so many untested places we still want to visit!
