Walk (or Stroll) Across the Golden Gate Bridge. Check!

A little over two years ago (February of 2009 to be exact), Travis and I embarked on a journey I will never forget. I’m pretty sure it will forever go down as one of my favorite days in San Francisco. It was one of those days that reminds you why you live here…perfectly sunny with a little chill in the air, gorgeous scenery all around, and nothing to do but go for a looooooooooooooooooooooooong walk…

Our long walk began in San Francisco and ended at the Sausalito Taco Shop.  Fast forward 5 months to July of 2009 and we found ourselves at the same Taco Shop (minus the long walk) enjoying our last meal as a “dating couple” – 20 minutes after eating, we went for a walk along the water and I ended up with a ring on my left ring finger.

I think it’s safe to say this walk and this restaurant hold a very special place in our hearts.

So during our “staycation” this past weekend, we decided it was time to introduce Abigail to both the 10 mile walk and the Sausalito Taco Shop.  And while the weather wasn’t nearly as amazing this time around, the adventure will go down as another great memory we’ve made together…this time, as a family.

Take a look…

What a fun day.  And as we were strolling across the Bridge, Travis and I decided that we need to make a list of things to do while we’re living here in San Francisco…a bucket list of sorts.  We know we won’t be here forever (as Abigail gets older and sibling(s) come along) so we want to make sure we’ve taken full advantage of the City.   We’re going to make a list of activities we want to do, restaurants we want to go to, etc…

Since we’ve already been in San Francisco for over 5 years, many of the “typical” to-do’s have been taken care of (ex: walking across the Golden Gate Bridge; going to Alcatraz)…so once we come up with our list, I’ll include it here on the blog…stay tuned.

For now, let me just say that if you’re up for an adventure (and if you love to walk), the trek from San Francisco to Sausalito is a fun one!
