CA – San Francisco: Work & Play

Yes! We work, promise.

Being 4 hours from the Bay Area we definitely took advantage of the RSA conference being held in San Francisco.

And hey, if we’re going to San Francisco, might as well go up early and spend the weekend.  Couldn’t have worked out better.

After posting up at our last minute accommodations in the Marina District, we had a long overdue beer before meeting up with Ran and Rinat for dinner.

As expected, Ran chose a delicious Peruvian restaurant, Parada where we enjoyed amazing seafood.  Pretty great seeing Ran and Rinat…just wish we didn’t forget the picture!

Our next free day we met up with Aloy and Erik for a trip out to the Muir Woods National Monument.

Muir 1

We took about a 7 mile hike (round trip) up the Redwood Trail that leads to Panoramic Highway.  The climb was awesome and once you elevate above the tree line it was gorgeous.

Muir 2

Right on the Panoramic Highway we found the Mountain Home Inn which THE perfect spot to grab a beer and snacks before the climb back down.

Muir 3

View was insane!

From there Aloy and Erik trooped it out and took us to Fisherman’s Wharf.

SF 1

This place is super touristy, but glad we went; the viewpoints  are awesome with the Golden Gate and Bay Bridge’s on each side with Alcatraz and the surrounding hills in between.

Even that was a great time.  It’s awesome meeting people you’ve talked to on the phone for years.
