Day 24 #blogyourbrand 18 days on the road- part 2 Remember the last post I made about our road trip? We ended off with us about to arrive in San Francisco. Upon arriving in Point Richmond (about 45 from San Francisco), we checked into our hotel, the Hotel Mac, and then went to check out the Nova Studio, where I would be teaching in a few days. We met Cassi, co-owner of the Nova Studio. We dropped off all of our supplies. Then, we headed straight for San Francisco to see the sights!

Here's one sign as we got closer to San Francisco.

We made the poor decision to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge when heading into San Francisco. We didn't realize until later that it cost $27.50 to cross it lol.

When we got into San Francisco, we obviously headed for the pier first. We found a parking garage just a block away! Of course, it cost $9.50 per hour of parking! We walked around the pier for a little while, and then went to the Aquarium of the Bay.

After that, we had dinner at a restaurant along the pier. We shared a fish po' boy and garlic fries!

fish sandwich

Dinner was delicious!!!!!!

After dinner, we headed to the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, collected pressed pennies, watched people create street art, and listened to a street performer playing the saxophone for four hours straight! We also shared a Biscoff Latte, and got all of our San Francisco merchandise. By the time we left the Ripley's Museum, we were one of the few left out on the pier. We got to see a beautiful sunset over the bay.

We drove back to Point Richmond after our fun-filled and exhausting night on the pier. We had the next two days off to spend in San Francisco before I began teaching at the Nova Studio for my boot camp. Here are some pictures from the next two days of our trip! Hope you enjoy!

Some of our other stops were fish and chips for lunch (again), City Lights Bookstore, and Fisherman's Wharf. The next part of our road trip will be about teaching at the Nova Studio! I hope you enjoyed living vicariously through my blog lol!

Thanks for stopping by!
