Maitlands Go West: Golden Gate Bridge & Ghirardelli Square

After our stunningly beautiful drive on Hwy 1, we ended up in San Fransisco - the land of endless hills!  Our first adventure included a walk across the Golden Gate Bridge.  We walked the Brooklyn Bridge on one of our very first dates so it was fun to experience this one together as we celebrated our one year anniversary.

The walk was nice - breezy and sunny, but not too hot.  Unfortunately, the bikers and pedestrians were all on the same path so that made for a few tricky moments.  We could easily see Alcatraz and the city from the bridge.  There were lots of boats out, too.

We walked to a photo area just before the off ramp for the bridge before turning around.  We spent a total of about two hours here between walking and taking photos.

Later that night, we made our way to Ghirardelli Square for a treat!  We decided to go for the banana split, appropriately named Golden Gate on the menu.  The store was unique with a display of the chocolate making process set up in the far end of the room.  I enjoyed checking it out while we waited for our ice cream treat.

Do you enjoy Ghirardelli chocolates?  Which flavor is your favorite?
