Leaving today!

We are going to go to take Bart from Walnut creek to Embarcadero, then walk to Golden gate park (google says its only 5.4 miles. No biggie.). From there we can explore for around a hour, go to AFA, the bonsai shop, then AT&T park. We will most likely take a bus for half of it. Not all of it is going to be walking. Basically, its going to be a big loop. We are going to see the botanical gardens at the park. If we don't have time to go to AFA, we can always go after the game.

Enjoy it Taco!
San Francisco is a great city. Lots of cool things to see and do.
Also, have fun at the wedding!

If you are fond of Ghiradelli chocolates, visit their factory outlet in San Leandro. You can buy really cheap chocolates by the boxes. Not the shop at at the embarcadero as they sell them only at retail price. chow!

Dont think we can make it that far away. Let alone go to a factory. I would be my Mom's best friend if I were to go though.

I think you've grossly underestimated the time required to walk 5.5 miles in the city. And then AT&T park is back on the opposite side.

In a time crunch link this, I'd be taking a taxi. For the two rides you need, you'd total out at 40 bucks, likely.

If we don't have time, we can take a taxi. We will be taking the bus, trolly, and other form of public transportation. I know I make it sound like we are only walking but we are most likely going to utilize public transportation. Sides, if you don't get to go to AFA before the game, there should be time afterwards.
