Yesterday, I took him to the Sutro Baths, where we walked along the headlands to Land's End for a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
After that, we walked back to the Baths, and had lunch/dinner (it was 4pm) at Louis' Diner. It was built in 1937 (according to the LONG story on the back of the menu), and the interior doesn't look like it's been updated since! Kind of funky, but it was Ross's first "American diner." He asked where the jukebox was... :D Since he was going for the all-American experience, he decided on the Chili Burger (an open-faced burger with heaps of chili con carne, and cheese and onions to top it off - it looked DISGUSTING~! - but probably tasted great), which came with fries, and a rootbeer float! Apparently, they don't have rootbeer in Australia, so this was his first try. I suppose it was a success, though I think he liked the ice cream better than the rootbeer.
Anyway, totally bloated and sleepy, we continued our quest to "view the Golden Gate Bridge" by driving aimlessly in the direction of the bridge until I miraculously guided us exactly where we wanted to go: Fort Point. We took some more pictures with the bridge and hit the gift shop. (I took a really good one of him with the bridge! I should be a pro photographer!)
It was a nice visit, and I enjoyed showing him around SF a bit, even though I don't know it that well myself.
Now Ross is gone, and with nothing but the lingering scent of products for men (after-shave/deodorant/hair gel, etc), I find my apartment feeling empty. I'm at a loss for what to do. It's Saturday, I should go out and do something, but I'm not sure where to go or what to do.
It's too cloudy/cold to read in the park... my Berkeley friends are busy/in Berkeley... my brother and Holly have gone camping... hm...
Goals for the near future:
1. Make a list of things to do in SF.
2. Make friends in the city.
If you have any tips of things to do, leave a comment!
...maybe I'll go upstairs and play with the kitties...
