The Sunday Chill Out - Memories of San Francisco

Sunday is a day to relax and chill out, so the music I like to listen to on a Sunday reflects that. 

The track I have chosen this week always reminds my of a trip to San Francisco when I was 19/20 with my Dad and Sister.  It takes me back to walking along the pier and board walk ( I always try to forget the wind).  

We visited Alcatraz, took a boat ride and shopped in amazing little boutiques. We went to the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory, which was a little bit of heaven! 

We stayed in China Town which was nosey and busy but fascinating. 

When we were there we didn't like it so much, having been to Florida and New York in the past  and it was very different. When I look back now I would love to go again to appreciate it better. 

It was an interesting trip, I met them in Florida as they started in Washington and then we went to San Francisco and ended the trip in New York. 

My Sunday Chill Out this week is 'Sitting on the dock of the bay' by Ottis Redding
