On the road again at last?

Yesterday my friend, Brian, and I went into San Francisco to tour around a little.  We went to the big farmer’s market down at the Ferry Building on The Embarcadero first, and then did a bit of sightseeing on foot. 

We had lunch and spent a good part of the afternoon at Ghirardelli Square (free peanut chocolate sample!) with some pigeons, one of which lacked a foot and toe.  As they pecked apart pieces of bread they constantly threw bread chunks over their shoulders.

But the highlight of the day for me was finding sfogliatelle at a pastry shop en route back to the car.  These are my most favorite pastry in the world and I think the last time I had one was over six years ago.  Inside they have an orange-flavored ricotta filling.  Holy smokes, so delicious. 

Sfogliatelle.

I am semi-reluctantly packing up to leave Livermore this morning.  The schedule says I leave today but if it gets late (if I procrastinate enough) I may put it off until tomorrow since I intend to make rather a long drive of 4+ hours to our next stop.  In just a couple days we shall have entered Oregon at long last.
