Tour Diary: Day Six (9/15/15)
Tuesday was our San Francisco day, so we got all touristy again and took the BART into town to Pier 39 to see Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. I didn’t know much about The Bay when I got there, except to use the phrase “hella” often to fit in, and to eat sourdough bread if possible. We ended up eating clam chowder out of sourdough bread bowls (and got to watch a pigeon attack a group of women who screamed so loudly/high pitched that Ben cricked his neck as he jumped back into his booth) and Chico took the opportunity to buy a new dorky hat, this time a LEATHER COWBOY HAT! Which unsurprisingly he pulled off, because he’s very handsome.
We then took one of the historic trolleys up some massive hills and had fun taking pictures, almost getting hit by cars, and finally finding a dive bar to hang out in (after making Danny walk up so many hills we owed him a rum and coke STAT).
We were going to eat more in Chinatown, but realized we were having so much fun we lost track of time and had to rush across the bay to Oakland. Our show that night was at Stork Club, and I was super excited because that morning my friend Sara texted me to tell me that she and Nick (her best friend) and Corin (her girlfriend) were coming to the show. I met Nick and Sara at Pu’u’ala Kava Farm on the big island of Hawaii last year. I was only on the farm a short time – about a month – but it was such a life changing experience and I made some incredible connections with truly amazing people (we call each other “Farmily” now). Nick and Sara are two of those people. Corin arrived on the farm after I left, so this was my first time meeting her, and it was really fun to see Sara so happy and have a big happy reunion with some of my favorite people.
We missed you Kelsey!!!
