On my last day of freedom, we decided to head into San Francisco ("The City" if you are a local) via the CalTrain. This is a nice commuter rail into the city that stops in all of the towns of the Bay area. It costs $14/person for a day pass and takes about 1.5 hours to get into the city (versus 1 hour without traffic if driving).
We didn't have much agenda so we planned to walk around and explore. Katherine has an interview in The City on Tuesday so we checked out what the walk would be like and made sure she knew where it would be.
We totally forgot it was Veteran's Day so a parade was a nice surprise!

We went down to check out the very crowded Ferry Terminal and managed to get some delicious donuts from Pebbles. Vegan too!
Without much to do we decided to take a ferry and see the bay. I had been to Sausalito before and figured any of the towns would be cool so we got tickets for the Larkspur boat. It was easier than trying to get to the bridge on foot and should have given us a view. We idled out of the dock and then both of were surprised at how fast the boat went. It was a full blown catamaran and we went fast! Really cool!

Larkspur ended up being pretty small without much to do but they were doing a food truck day so we got a delicious "deconstructed Samosa" from Curry Up Now. Holy crap! So friggin' good!
Once we got back we did some shopping. I was on the hunt for some maroon/red jeans and Katherine wanted some wax cotton pants which we both agree as super bitchin.
After the train ride back I found the car battery totally dead. Guess who left the lights on. This guy! I'll have to get used to turning the lights off again as our Golf has the same system.
Overall, a great way to spend the day before starting work at Apple!
