It was this day when I fell in love with the city. Before we'd even thought about breakfast, we'd hiked up Lombard Street in the pouring rain. It was worth the calf ache! Breakfast eventually came in the form of Starbucks granola and a cup of "hot tea" whilst watching the rain drip down the windows. We scurried through the streets to the Aquarium of the Bay to dry off for a few hours, and when we emerged, it had stopped raining. We decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to seek out the parrots of Telegraph Hill - which, unfortunately, we never found. We did, however, find some gorgeous views of the city from Coit Tower, and eventually made our way downhill to North Beach.
