San Franscisco April, 6 2011.

We decided to go back to San Fransisco for another day of sightseeing. We like to take a tour of a city to see the highlights and then go back and visit the ones we would like to see. San Francisco was no exception. Here is the trolly.

Glad we took the trolley. The streets are unbelievable! so steep and parking on them must be an experience.

 

 

 

 

 

The driver took us down one of the streets. Glad his brakes worked!! Not a place to take the RV.

We also saw the crookedness street.

The driver pointed out all the different neighborhoods. It was an interesting tour.

When we returned we explored Fisherman’s Wharf. We went into the bakery that is known for their sourdough bread. Boudin bakery. Sourdough got its name because wild yeasts in the San Francisco air had imparted a unique tang to their traditional French bread. It sure tastes good.

Of course Jean always needs the bathroom. They are very unique at fisherman’s wharf. You push a  button and the door slides open. The toilet flushes itself when you leave. The sink it automatic – first it dispenses water,then soap, then switches to dry. Push a button the door opens and out you go.

There was an old Navy submarine and Liberty ship docked at the pier. We look but decided not to take the tour. We have toured many ships already. Here is a picture of the Liberty trip. John’s dad served on a ship like this during WWII.

We explored pier 39 – many shops and restaurants. The best part was seeing the harbor seal lions.

They just love having their picture takes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We said good-bye to San Francisco and headed home.

Too much traffic!! We had dinner at Panda Express. Always good food.

    So glad you enjoyed San Francisco. Makes me miss the City. My husband and I lived in North Beach/Telegraph Hill for 9 yrs (a very steep hill but I got good exercise when I lived there!), and could easily walk to Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf. Loved watching the sea lions and going to the shops. Wonderful photos!
