I just got back from an exciting, week-long adventure in northern California with my family. We spent three days in Monterey and went whale watching, visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium and hunted eagerly for sea glass on the beach. During the last part of our trip, we drove to San Francisco. We walked across the Golden Gate Bridge, went to Chinatown, and saw Lombard Street, the “crookedest street” in the world. We ventured down to Ghirardelli Square, my favorite spot in all of San Francisco and enjoyed sundaes at one of the three Ghirardelli shops. One of those shops is the original chocolate shop opened by Domenico Ghirardelli in 1852. I loved the experience and I hope to go back to California soon. During my trip, I came across some interesting words that I can’t wait to write about! My next post will be coming up later this week.
