Our last visitors: B+B’s visit to Oakland
January 15th, 2013
Before our big move back down to Long Beach we were able to host one final set of friends, Brian and Brianne. It was bittersweet but it was so nice to be able to share our second home, the Bay Area, with our closest friends one last time.
We spent the majority of their short visit across the bridge in our favorite city, San Francisco. We visited one of our most favorite spots in the city: Strawberry Hill and Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park.
And we made another day trip back across the bridge to do the most touristy thing ever but something none of us had ever done: Alcatraz!
Of course they had to get lunch at Boudin…having worked across from Pier 39 for 3.5 years it was definitely not on my bucket list before we left the Bay Area, haha.

It got freaking chilly after the sun went down on our side of the island and we had to wait for the darn ferry. Glad we came prepared!
Goodbye, San Francisco and the amazing Bay Area. We love you and we’re so grateful for all of our adventures!!
