KY Cruises SF

A few weeks back I mentioned my other BF was coming to town. This one is like the big sister I never had {because I am the oldest child in my family}. She is one of the sweetest, most down to earth, intelligent, kind, loving person and has had an enormous positive influence on my life for the last 18 years. I don't think there is a day that goes by that we don't talk. And sometimes more than once. But if a day exists, we pick up right where we left off. She is the ONLY person I have never gotten in a fight with or argued with EVER! She is the perfect example of a gray being for my black and white azz! 
She used to live here but has now been in KY for a few years. She and her BF {who has the coolest accent ever} came out here on a trip with her brother from Oregon and we all got to play tourist in San Francisco for one of the days. All I can say is what an amazing day we had. 
She pre-purchased us Ferry tickets for a bay cruise tourist style. The 1-hour ride came with a headset that had more information than I have ever heard all about the surrounding areas of land around the bay. Even a ton of Alcatraz history. {Which is another great tour if you have the time here too.} I highly recommend this attraction if you are ever in SF. My favorite part was sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge. I had chills the entire time. I felt like what an honor to see such a massive land mark from the bottom/ocean side. It was truly one of the neatest experiences I have ever had. We totally lucked out with weather that day as well because just a few days prior, we had crummy fog and yet the day we headed in it was clear, sunny, blue and gorgeous!
We ate lunch at Alioto's which is a tasty restaurant on the Pier and then toodled all around the city showing Mr KY all the tourist sites and even hit up the Castro District {gay area}. There are always funny things to see there like a man-nun on a low bike that broke down in the crosswalk and he foot pedaled like Fred Flintstone and other things toooo graphic to list. But we had some crazy laughs and even circled the block to make sure we got a double take at a few things and were not seeing things.

Lombard Street is always a tourist must. It has eight switchback turns and is considered the most crooked street in the world- I think. LoL Anyways it is one way and a quick little drive plus you get to see a gorgeous view of Coit Tower off in the distance. 
All in all we had a great day and I am so grateful they let me tag along.

I already miss you..... Hurry up and come back ;] Actually I will be going to KY before she comes back. Hopefully.
I love Kentucky.... 
Not only for their Moonshine jk but the Fireflies are INSANE! 
I have never seen anything more incredible than those green glowing little bugs...... ;]

Do you ever play tourist where you live? Have you ever tried? What is cool and tourist-y by you? 
I would love to know!

Have a wonderful day!!!!
