San Francisco Church USF
St. Ignatius Church, San Francisco

Just got back from a great mini-break in the Bay Area. I ate, visited, museumed (is that a word?), hiked, walked, and got my public transportation groove on.

Great pics! Hard to go wrong with a food-centric visit SF. Thanks for visiting us!

I can vouch for at least 20,000 steps on the pedometer, 1 Indian food meal (some people pray before a meal, the food librarian takes photos!), 1 ice cream cone and 2 cats! It was great to see you! :-)

Hey how was Bi-Rite? I passed by and was wondering...

Bi-Rite was tasty. Good selection of very creamy and rich ice creams. However, I love Icy in Berkeley for their selection of sorbets.
