Down by the Pier

Hello! Today's been such a busy day! We went down to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, and it was incredibly crowded. The whole pier was swarming with people and scents of delicious food. While I'm really not much for crowds, today was a lot of fun and I got to experience a lot of really cool things.

First, my boyfriend and I rented bikes and rode them up and down the Oakland Pier

Then we headed over to Fisherman's Wharf, where we went to the aquarium and saw some waving starfish

Then we walked along the boardwalk and saw a ton a seals. They were being silly and laying on top of each other

Then we headed to this old fashioned arcade with tons of cool things. We played a racing game

And took old fashioned photo booth pictures

Then we headed to boudin bakery to get some sourdough bread. We saw a few extra cute loaves...

Eventually we went to Ghiradelli Square where we bought chocolates and I took an outfit photo

Shorts: Levi's, Tights: Macy's, Shoes: Report, Shirt: H&M, Trench: H&M

Such a busy day! My feet are so achy, and I'm going to lay down and rest. Tomorrow is going to be a pretty calm day in comparison to this one. I'm pretty sure we're going to be doing some shopping, and I'm hoping to find a good pair of jeans since it's been much colder than I expected here.

Hope you're all having lovely weekends!

  1. I love piers, there is something really cool about them, the smell,the fact that they are close to the sea, also they always remind me of that show "The O.C" (I loved that show).
    well, I love your shoes. They are so pretty and they are red, which is always a plus in my book.
    Enjoy the rest of your stay.
