We walked and walked and saw parts of San Francisco that not many people do.
10 blocks off of Market Street is the Mission District. A cross between Commercial Drive and Main Street. Here, we visited the Curiosity Shop. The Curiosity Shop is owned and operated by the dynamic DIY team you find on design*sponge each week. I made the trek over there to see Annie Galvin's 49 Reasons Why featuring paintings inspired by San Francisco's iconic 49 Mile Scenic Drive (road sign pictured below).
(cool shops in Mission)
Then we headed to Westfield Shopping Center to use the bathroom :) Look at the mounds of ice cream at the food court!
Somehow we ended up at the Farmer's Market in Civic Center and City Hall. Plus, we found this Vietnamese restaurant on the corner of Larkin and Eddy with a HUGE line up outside - Score! Can't wait to try it. It reminds me of Au Petit on Main Street. Yum.
We have a coffee date tomorrow. Barbara Casey from I Do Wedding Photography will be in San Francisco after visiting her family in the UK. We hope to make our way to North Beach in the morning and then meet her in Union Square. Tomorrow is our last full day in San Francisco before we head back to Portland on Friday!
