Has it really been a year?

On his way to Austin, Mr. Right was poised to lunge at the gate when they asked if anyone would like a free round-trip flight to anywhere in the continental US for changing their flight. He did this for me, because our first anniversary is coming up.

He called me and asked "do you want to go to San Francisco?".

Hell to the yeah, I do. But I also want to drive to Big Sur for a few days while we are there. I was there for about 2 hours when I was 15 and haven't shut up about it since.

We are still in the planning stages, but I am we are looking to stay at the Tickle Pink Inn (bed and breakfast) when we get to Big Sur. Checkout that link. Pretty amazing.

This is the view from the deck (ahem, where there is wine and cheese tasting). We will definitely be sporting our Biff & Muffy alter egos upon arrival.

We will fly in to San Fran, spend a few days. Drive to Big Sur for a few days and stay in Carmel and Monterey. Drive back to San Fran. Fly home the day after that.

Any suggestions for what we MUST do in San Fran? I'm hoping there is a boat ride with NO Alcatraz stop. There must be?

I have to say it, when we are in San Fran the first couple of days, I will have these visions in my head...

Ohhh! That is beautiful! We did our honeymoon in SF and Mendocino. Since you are already driving to Big Sur I am not going to recommend then driving to Mendocino but it is worth a trip for another time. My suggestion is to hit some wineries by limo or tour. This way you don't have to worry about driving AND you can sample some great stuff. I want to do the limo thing next time we go out.

It is a great hotel.
If you get a chance go to the Babbling Brook in Santa Cruz. Another great place to stay.
(My mother's from San Francisco and her family moved to the Santa Cruz area).

Thank you for the tip suburban prep (I tried to send you an email but it didn't work). We are very excited for our trip but we aren't that familiar with the area. So, any help is greatly appreciated :)

Have a great Sunday,

I assume he changed his flights and got the free round trip. What a sweetie he is!

Sounds like a fun, fun, fun trip!

I'll keep this itinerary in mind for our next SFO trip!

OMG, you guys have alter egos too???? When we go on vacation, we are Tripp and Hastings. Our friends even got us monogrammed bathrobes for our wedding.
