Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 84: SF Getaway, Part 1

For our annual trek to see at least one of the Red Sox vs. As games each season, we decided this year to opt for a single game viewing (tomorrow afternoon) combined with a short getaway in San Francisco today rather than our usual and beloved Doubletree Berkeley Marina (lap pool!!!).

This time around, we're staying at the Hilton Financial District, which isn't too far from the Ferry Building, so we headed down there today to grab some lunch after going to the California Academy of Sciences, a visit we've been talking about and planning to make for several years and that we finally prioritized for this short trip.

Mr. E's destination at the Ferry Building was Boccalone for a small "cone o' meat:"

My primary destination along the Embarcadero was quite a bit farther away at the Boudin Bakery at Fisherman's Wharf, the only Boudin location that sells the adorable mini turtle sourdough bread:

I love these guys!  Not that they taste any different from Boudin sourdough in any other shape, but they're just so adorable that I can't resist 'em.  In fact, my Skype picture is an image of me in the outdoor seating area near Boudin holding up a mini turtle - with a leg detached! - from an SF trip several years ago.  Mmm...  turtle...
