more of the bay city
Not too much to write about today. We walked through Chinatown (picture from an alley in Chinatown) and the design district and made our way to the Ferry Market. We then hopped onto the F Market Streetcar and took it to the pier. Once at the pier, we walked over to Boudin for one of their famous clam chowder bread bowl and then walked over to Ghirardelli Square. Here is where we checked out the new English tea room called Crown & Crumpet as featured here on sfgirlbybay's blog.
We didn't try the tea for two, but I did pick up a wooden spool shaped like a mushroom. They had lots of cute items in their gift shop!
Last, but not least, we headed over to Japan town. All the sushi there made us drool, but we had thanksgiving left overs waiting for us at "home". On our way to the bus stop, we did bump into the San Francisco Museum of Craft and Design. This was one of their outdoor exhibits. Each neon green cord runs to a solar powered panel on the roof and it lights up in the evening. The second picture shows the cord running along the entrance and around the door.
