Golden Girls

I mentioned this weekend that I had a friend in town and was playing tourist most of the weekend in the city with her.  She had come to see me, along with another friend, back during Labor Day Weekend and we had just had a blast, but didn't get to spend much time in the city at all. So she spontaneously booked a trip for us to spend in the city and our third Golden Girl wasn't able to make it on short notice.  We call ourselves the Golden Girls because we love that show and also because we are starting to show our age! Although we always argue about who is what character.

As I've been dealing with my urgent need to lose weight for various health reasons, my friend has been a great "health buddy" and we follow each other on both FitBit and MyFitnessPal to stay accountable for staying within our calorie goals and making sure we move around enough during the day.  One of the things she asked me if we could do during her visit was to walk the Golden Gate Bridge.  I initially thought the walk would be very daunting and kept trying to figure out if we should park on the San Francisco side and take an Uber back after our walk, or if we should park on the Sausalito side and Uber to the start. Once we realized it was 1.7 miles in one direction we just decided to go for it and walk both ways. It was a tiny bit scary, but really fun and it gave us a great chance to just walk and talk.

Afterwards, we headed to the Fisherman's Wharf for lunch and then to one of my favorite dinner places, Epic Roasthouse, for a late afternoon dessert and drink to celebrate our walk and watch the sunset.
