Presidio to take a walk. It was so nice out and we love going to the Presidio. There are SO many different areas to explore and we always find the coolest stuff up there. This time, we went up to the Letterman area (next to the Marina district) to see what we could find. This is where Dixie Restaurant is, a Starbucks, Lucas Films, and of course, the Yoda statue!
We did find this little pond and sitting area...
She definitely would've hopped in the water if I let her.Walking Dead, I half expected a Zombie to jump out and get me. haha!
Creeeepy inside the Power Plant
We headed back over towards the Thoreau Center and Lucas Films on our way back to the car.
Here is a statue that she was BARKING at. haha
I went home and tried to figure out what happened to that Power Plant but couldn't find anything. I did read up on the hospital that used to be up in the Presidio. It closed in the 90's and is now apartments. The hospital opened in 1898 and serviced military men during each of the wars. There were many Sailors that came into the hospital, died, and were buried in the Presidio. If the sailors didn't have family or money to be sent home, they buried them. Very crazy to think we might be walking on a marine cemetary, since it looks like the cemetary wasn't kept it up and was built upon.
For dinner, we headed up to Marin Brewing Company in Larkspur with Betsy & Greg.
It was packed but we had a beer while we waited. They had quite a few beers on tap to try. We ate a lot at dinner including:
Small Veggie Pizza for appetizer
Teriyaki turkey burger and fries
Erik had Fish & Chips
I think we are officially on diets until Christmas. haha. Fun dinner with good friends and it was fun to try a new location!
