|My purchases from H&M.|
Laline (they have a shop on the pier) and got a free hand cream with my purchase. I won't get into costs for that purchase either, but the bath bombs are great! After that we headed over to the Ferry Building, which is filled with lots of little shops and places to eat. We were both full but when we walked by a sign with a special-of-the-day that read swordfish pesto sandwich, we just had to get one. And it was damn well worth being uncomfortably full for the next hour! I love swordfish, and I love pesto even more. It was Mr. H's first time trying swordfish and he liked it a lot. Probably in my top five favorite fish. Yum!
After that we decided to go check out the Sutra Baths ruins since neither of us had ever been there before. It is a beautiful little spot. We have both been to the city too many times to count, so I was surprised that we'd missed this little gem. We wandered around the beach for a while before we realized we weren't in the right place. There was a little spot, however, overlooking the ocean that we did stumble upon that was really pretty (photo to the left is said spot, not the ruins). Locals were up there with their dogs, so we sat and enjoyed the ocean air for a while before heading back down to search for the Sutra Baths.
So we walked back down to where we parked and decided to go in the opposite direction. We spotted some other people heading down a little hill, so we followed them. Once we were at the top of the hill, we looked down, and ta-da, we found it!
We hiked down to that little cave that you can see in the photo above. It's a really cool little spot. You can walk around on what I'm assuming used to be the foundation of the bath house. It is a beautiful view and very romantic if you're into being romantic with your significant other (which we are not! haha). After checking out the cave, we went up and around the cliff above the cave to find a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was super windy, but surprisingly not foggy, so we sat up there and hung out for a while before heading home. We were both already exhausted from waking up early, so hiking didn't help much, but it was worth it. It was a perfect, relaxing last stop for our Valentine's vacation.
I'll share some more photos of our trip once I find the camera cable (which is still hiding from me).
Happy Monday? Yeah, didn't think so.
