The Adventurers headed to the City today with the main purpose of visiting the Museum of Ice Cream, which they had heard a lot about – and purchased tickets months in advance.
They got lucky as the overnight rain had stopped before they headed out, after walking The Mag around the block as she was a non-starter for this adventure.
Hitting the City just before the busy lunch hour, they were able to be seated at the still beautiful rotunda restaurant at Neiman Marcus. L wondered why they had been “let in” given they were in their walking clothes, not stylish clothes. It may be pricey but it also one of the loveliest places to have lunch in the whole City
Because they had a lot of time before their Ice Cream reservation, they got a bit of work out by heading up to Nob Hill (non-trivial walk up from Union Square). There they visited Grace Cathedral and the doves overhead, as well as a memorial for victims of gun violence which features this month the sister of L’s friend Laura.
It was easy walking back down the hill on California St. to Grant Avenue where the Ice Cream Museum is located.
Truth be told, it was not as clever as they expected. And even D said: “The doves were better.” But they did get a little swing time
But they did get a good workout walking up the hill…
Walk/mostly easy with three steep blocks/4.2 miles
