The day before a few of us met up at Ate Jasmin's house to hang out. We snacked, iTuned, admired the new laptop, travbuddied, and made plans to meet again the next day to go ice skating at the Kristy Yamaguchi Ice Skate Rink since Alma would be showing around one of her friends/co-worker since she will be leaving to go to Boston the next morning. We all agreed.
Exciting.. I was going to go ice skating again. I told my friends/co-workers that I will be going ice skating again today. The whole day went by and and I was counting the minutes till the clock striked 5p. When it finally did I said my "good-byes," "see you tomorrow," and "have a great night," and I was off.
Met up with the sister, and we had the brother drop us off at BART, Fremont BART to be exact, so that we could meet up with the girls in SF.
The Bay Area Rapid Transit filled up of course with many travellers/commuters. Kids/teens, working women and men all getting on after a long day at work, all aboard with their own specific destinations. My destination was Embarcadero BART stop in SF. We had to take the Richmond train because at the time there were no more direct trains to San Francisco and we would have to transfer in Bayfair, San Leandro.
We arrived at our stop, Powell St. Went up to meet everyone at the food court area, where we were glad to go since we were starving. I had chicken pad thai, basil chicken and a soda pop. I forgot the name of the place but it was course delicious, I'm glad because I hate when I get things that I don't like and make other people eat it, especially if I'm hungry. After eating our dinner we decided to get a cream puff from "Beard Papa," I don't usually get them but for some reason I wanted one.
We walked around the Nordstrom Center, I got a few little things at H&M and we decided to get some fresh air. =) We made our way up the street to Union Square where we were excited to be taking our little tourist to see the Christmas tree that stands 85-feet high, magnificently lit with Christmas lights and ornaments. It looked so pretty. I took a few pics, they took many since she had never seen it before. While we waited patiently, I watched all the people around me smiling, and laughing, talking and taking photos of the beautiful surroundings.
It was getting close to that time for us to leave the city and head back to the East Bay. When we saw the cute little red heart in front of Saks Fifth Ave. We had to go see it and of course take pictures of it.
And we were off. Good-bye for now San Francisco. We went to the garage where my friends parked their car and started driving out of the city. We ended up in Palo Alto, where we dropped off my friend's friend, and she thanked us for a great night, and that it was a pleasure to meet us. We were glad she had a good time. We then made our way across the Dumbarton Bridge to end up in the City of Newark. Home sweet home. =)
