I never expected too but Tony Bennett was right, this is one heck of a city.  It is really rich and diverse with so much to see and do, a long weekend was just not enough.
Everywhere you went there were fantastic street musicians playing all kinds of different music from blues to boogie, blue grass and even assorted drummers wonderful.

We were 23 floors up in our hotel and had the most wonderful view of the Bay Bridge from our balcony which could be seen peeking out between the sky scrapers.

Our friends joined us for the last part of our trip and we spent the afternoon in the roof terrace at Macy's at the Cheesecake Factory.  Oh my goodness I have never seen so many cheesecakes in one place, so much choice, where does a girl begin to choose.

This was our final choiceyummy.
The portions were so huge that we all shared, I would not mind but we had a small lunch there as well which was a big as a large one here.  My goodness the Americans sure know how to eat.

Finally we returned using the cable car - you can just make out theBay Bridge at the bottom of the hill.

As I say a wonderful vibrant city and one we will definately return to.

Now we are back in good old Blighty and if I can just get over this jet lag!!!
