We started out with a full Irish Breakfast at 9:30 in the morning, at a pub called O'Reillys in the North Beach (largely Italian) section of the city, accompanied by black and tans. (Guiness beer for the black, and a pale ale for the tan). And it was already crowded with people drinking when we got there.
This is coit tower which we viewed here from Washington Square Park. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day. Coit tower was built in 1933. It was funded primarily by Lillie Hitchcock Coit who left a third of her fortune to have something built to beautify the city that she loved. She also love firefighters and firefighting. She eventually became an honorary member, after supporting them for years. The tower resembles a firehose nozzle, and is one of the most recognizeable landmarks in the city.

Passed by Ghirardelli Square down by Fisherman's Wharf. Yes you can buy the chocolate everywhere, but it's not the same!
We were a bit drowsy after that big breakfast and beer so we found ourselves down by the Wharf at The Buena Vista for coffee. Oh c'mon, it was St. paddy's Day. We all had Irish Coffees. Picture down below.
