We drove back to San Francisco on Tuesday. And this time we drove up the gorgeous Pacific Coast!
Then we arrived in San Francisco, again. The architecture is amazing to me. I love the skinny town houses. And the victorian styles. So beautiful! We took (most of) a 49 mile scenic drive through San Francisco. We drove up Twin Peaks. And this is one shot of the panoramic city view. Eventually we decided to veer off track, so we didn’t drive the entire 49 miles. But we did see several highlights, including Golden Gate Park, which I failed to get pictures of.
That’s Alcatraz in the distance.
Lombard Street is known as “the crookedest street”. You can see why! We drove down the steep, zig-zagging incline.
Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge was our little “detour” that took us off track of the scenic drive. Another novelty. But we wanted to see the giant sequoias at Muir Woods across the bay.
Just look at that big boy!! And I’m not talking about my sweet hubby!
At the end of the day, we retired to our hotel. A very nice place at Fisherman’s Wharf that I snagged for half-price through Priceline. I’ll teach you how, if you’d like!
Dinner was a bit disappointing…Gino’s Pizzas on the wharf. We needed something quick because we still had our car and parking meters charged a FORTUNE!!! We ate a late breakfast at Tom and Barbara’s and our strawberries were lunch.
It was fun to drive around the city, but in the future, I would ditch the car and learn how to use public transportation. More about that later…
