Having a January birthday is both awesome and not awesome. Awesome: presents two months in a row! Not awesome: not getting presents for 10 months afterward.
Awesome: Greg and I both have January birthdays. Double awesome: combined birthday outings!
This year for our combined birthday weekend, we went to San Francisco. I had only been once before, and Greg had never been. We walked for miles (and miles and miles), saw Alcatraz (Azkaban, anyone?) and ate fish and chips.
|On the ferry to Alcatraz after Greg got checked out by a gay couple. He's taken, dudes.|
|Look at this guy. So 25.|
|Golden Gate Bridge|
|Exercise yard. Apparently inmates like baseball, handball and cigarettes.|
|I did not like the cell blocks. Claustrophobia and dirty toilets.|
|Prison life did not suit Greg.|
|The audio tour was super cool. We saw where and how escape attempts happened, what daily life in Alcatraz looked like, and why we never want to go to prison.|
|We like outside.|
|We kept an eye out for Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, and missiles.|
|After Alcatraz, we went for a walk along the Embarcadero. We stopped into the Musee Mechanique to see the old arcade games and machines.|
|Greg arm-wrestled the creepy machine|
|Ghirardelli and an espresso dark chocolate sundae. I think this is what heaven looks like.|
