Today Hagen and I headed southwest (Jim made me say this-I wanted to just say south) to San Francisco to meet up with some good family friends who had come to the city for the weekend from Texas.. Hagen and I started our day early this morning to visit Japantown. I wanted to show Hagen the area plus I wanted to stop in at Kinokuniya Bookstore. I love checking out their knitting and crochet books. I was torn between two crochet books but finally settled for just one. Now I just need an interpreter to figure out the patterns.

We wandered around awhile then headed to Pier 39 at Fishermans Wharf to meet up with the Chan's.

After lunch at the Boudin Bakery Cafe of clam chowder served in a bread bowl we headed down the wharf to see the sites.
|Apparently this one is a loner.|

Fortunately we had just eaten otherwise the wonderful smell of baking bread would have caused us to stop for food.
Our final destination was Ghiradelli Square where we stopped for some ice cream.
I had a wonderful time catching up with Grace and Joe along with Alex.
