Wow, what a great, and long, day leading up to Adobe Max.
San Francisco - what a beautiful city. We got off the plane and made the long trek to the hotel. The city was surprisingly quiet for ten in the morning, but the weather was clear, sunny and warm.
We took trolleys to Fisherman's Wharf, but missed the ferry to Alcatraz. Grabbed a nice seafood lunch with a nice view and then walked down the waterfront, all the way to some historical park and beach. Along the way we found a place offering Bay cruises. It was amazing - long busy boat ride under the Golden Gate bridge and a boat tour around Alcatraz island. A cheezy but really informative audio track played the whole way.
We took a cable car through the city back to Market Street, and wandered around Union Square. The atmosphere once the evening hit was WAY more what we would've expected - a total buzz, people of all sorts everywhere!
We took the opportunity to see the new Bond movie in a very luxurious theatre. Then back to the hotel for a nice Goat Cheese salad. What a great day - looking very forward to the conference!
