I left my dog, in Sacramento... Kelly's Visit Day 2 & 3

Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Hi everydoggie & GirlGirl, it's Michele, Ruby's Mom here. Ruby said the other day that I could 'borrow the keys to the blog' to post about my visit to San Francisco. I thought that was very kind of her. Ruby spent another enjoyable visit at the Wag---much as she might try and tell you otherwise while 'Auntie' Kelly and I headed into the 'city by the bay' San Francisco.

I don't spend that much time in San Francisco, so when a friend visits, I always tend to go...it's a great excuse to people watch, shop and eat great food. Now both Kelly and I lived in the Bay area for a long time...but like most people, because of work and life, didn't spend a huge amount of time in 'the City'. When visitors would come into town, the typical spot to visit was Fisherman's Wharf, so we decided to mix it up a bit and spend time shopping in Union Square. It was a quick visit (only 1 night) but we had a lot of fun!

We started our visit at the San Francisco Ferry Marketplace. There are some great little cafes and a farmer's market. All the food looked amazing!!! Wally, I took LOTS of pictures of 'eatables' for you. After a fun afternoon we checked into the Hotel Adagio, grabbed the magic plastic card as Ruby calls it and did some shopping. We then had some dinner at a restaurant called Cortez which was amazing and I'm so sorry I didn't snap any pictures of your food because it was so beautiful AND delicious! We finished the evening by catching a movie. Yes, we are exciting, aren't we...but Ruby says I'm boring all the time so this shouldn't come as a surprise ;)

On Monday we ventured out early and we checked out two local pet shops which was very fun and than did some more shopping which of course included the Apple Store and a visit to Citizen Cupcake! We then headed home and picked up Ruby. So a VERY quick visit, but just fun to get away. Here are a few pictures from our visit...

I'm going to turn the blog back over to Ruby now because she has something important to tell you all...

Thanks Mom...dog is she boring...I would have been painting the town red and dancing at that Ruby Skye club she took a picture of. I'm so sorry you had to endure that...you are good friends to read it. Oh the important thing...this is my 100th post!!! Can you believe it?!?!?! It's very exciting for me since I really didn't know if I was going to dig doing this blogging thing...but I do and I love all you pups so thanks for making me want to keep blogging!!!

Looks like your Mom and Auntie Kelly had a great time! San Francisco looks really cool, but you're right, dancing at a club named after YOU would have been the coolest thing EVER! I would totally go with you!

So good of you to lend the keys of the blog to your mama. She and your Auntie Kelly couldn't help BUT have fun - good friends, good food, and it was San Fran, man! (My girl used to live in Berkeley and misses it like MAD)!

Your mom's trip makes my mom miss living in the Bay Area. I hear it's a wonderful place for dogs and people alike. You should post some Sacatomato pictures too! Glad you have fun at Wag!
