Tuesday, our first full day of San Francisco was a great one. We started the day with coffee and chocolate croissants in our lovely room. After breakfast we got our car back from the valet to visit The Mothership, I had planned to finally go to the Apple Company Store in Cupertino which was in the neighborhood. It was sort of special for me as Apple fanboy 🙂 Bought some Apple merchandise which you can only buy here.

Back in San Francisco we were kind of hungry and went to Blue Bottle, a great coffee place where they also serve some tasty sandwiches. Next up on the program was a visit to SFMOMA, or San Francisco Museum of Modern Art which is just a short walk from our hotel. Unfortunately most of the exhibits were closed, but we did get to see some great art. And for me highlights were the great photography they have on display. It was pretty hot out in the city so we cooled of with some drinks at the museum cafe.

I wanted to go out and do some photography next, so we called our car again and first went to Alamo Square, this is where you get a nice view of the city with the famous Victorian Style houses called the Painted Ladies in the foreground. You know the place from tv shows like Who’s the boss 🙂

And off course the first day of San Francisco isn’t complete without some photography of the Golden Gate bridge. I wanted to do something different than the standard view points, so we went down to the beach. After a long walk down a trail we arrived at Merchant Beach, the north side of Baker Beach… Much to our surprise this beach was full of lovin 😉 We got invited to visit festivals like Burning Man and had a blast. And most of all we got some great photo opportunities of the Golden Gate bridge just around sunset. Even a big wave soaking our feet couldn’t stop us from having great non-touristy afternoon…

Then we had to climb back up the many stairs to the car and changed shoes at the hotel after which we had dinner at La Scene. All in all a perfect day in San Francisco, and we still have two more ahead of us 🙂
