We decided to go to the Ferry Building this morning. We met a very nice girl on the bus, who gave us some good advice about restaurants in the area. It has been fun visiting with locals and getting their advice.
We were trying to stay away from the Pride Parade that was going on, but ended up right at the start of it! We watched the Dykes on Bikes and some of the parade for awhile, it was wild. People can get away with anything here.
We wondered through a little art show and then had fun tasting things in the farmers market and shops in the Ferry Building. After the gay pride entertainment we took the bus to Washington Square and then to Coit Tower. It was a great day to take in the view…blue, clear sky…it was amazing.

We spent the rest of the afternoon being lazy in the park and wondering around the Washington Square area.
We found a nice little Italian place in Washington Square (North Beach) for dinner. It was called Michelangelo Cafe, another small café with personal service from the owner. We really have enjoyed the cute little cafés.
