On Friday evening in the down pour we ran out to Pier 39 to do last minute shopping.... how dumb was that!!
The best thing about shopping in the rain is that the crowds are non-existent!! Woo-Hoo!!! So we got in an out of shops really quickly. Here is another shot out over the Bay looking towards Alcatraz....
After shopping we had a quick dinner and then on the way back to the car we waddled up to the mini donut place and got a bucket of cinnamon/sugar covered hot donuts!!!!
We were standing in the rain watching this machine plop the donut batter into the hot oil and then watched...
...as our bucket (yes, I said bucket) of hot steamy deliciousness was filled. That dispenser in the front hold the magical cinnamon/sugar that is poured over these while they are hot. So imagine as we left in the rain and drove, not through the city but around the Embarcadero and over to cut off the traffic and up Harrison going through the Mission and eventually getting home - in the rain munching away on hot donuts!!! A real Christmas Treat!!!!
That about wraps it up for today - I fly out of SFO tonight to spend Christmas with my sister and family in Vancouver. I'll be back next week - I wanted to leave you all a great big -
