San Francisco: Palace of Fine Arts, Baker Beach, E’ Tutto Qua, & Bi-Rite Creamery

Day 3 was spent wandering around the coast while waiting for Jatti to drive down from across the Golden Gate Bridge. It would be the first time I met her in person, so I was a little nervous, especially since I hadn’t been video-chatting with her in months. Turns out that there was nothing to worry about- I had so much fun laughing!

Palace of Fine Arts Theatre

I went to the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre early in the morning, so there weren’t many people at this majestic structure. (I came back here with Jatti in the afternoon and it was pretty crowded.) There even was a guy who set up a stand to practice his violin in the dome. It was so pretty.

Chrissy Fields

Chrissy Fields was right across the road from the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, so I headed there to chill some more and take in my daily dose of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island while waiting to rendezvous with Jatti. She was a little late because of a traffic jam on the Golden Gate Bridge, which meant that I had lots of time to spend on yet more photos.

Baker Beach

Finally met up with Jatti! Our first stop was to Baker Beach, a bit of a drive to the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Baker Beach in San Francisco, California.Baker Beach is also known as a nudist beach. This man came up to us and commented about how great it was that it was cloudy, which was perfect for photography. I was so amused! Jatti was a tad unnerved by the blatant display of nudity, but we both enjoyed the experience I think.

E’ Tutto Qua

We got a late lunch at this amazing Italian place where the servers and even a dedicated doorman looked like they loved their environment from the way they broke into song and teased each other in Italian. Our server was also so patient and helpful, answering so many of our questions and giving us recommendations with a smile. I’d patronise this place again if I ever set foot in SF!

Bi-Rite Creamery

This was one of the places that was a must-go according to Ela, Ssen, and most everywhere on the internet. So we drove back up from Chinatown for desserts!

And this is the end of our fun-filled date. ♥
