road trippin' day 5

Day five was a short drive day (only 265 miles), as we had relatives to visit in San Francisco! The weather was gray and overcast with occasional sun breaks--in other words, classic San Fran weather.

 yup, that's Alcatraz

We had fun visiting and riding an old tram car (not the classic cable cars, but still cool) down to Pier 39 and looking out over the bay.

 our view of the Golden Gate Bridge

The harbor seals were fun to watch, despite being mean and a total nuisance to the local fishermen! And in all my excitement, I totally forgot to take a photo of my sock progress this day. I managed to finish the southwest "make your heel stronger" socks and started a new pair I'm calling my "west coast sun" socks. While I'm glad I can now say I've been to San Francisco, I didn't leave my heart there as the song goes ... it was nice, but didn't excite me like other major cities have (Chicago, I'm talking about you!). Shrug. The downtown itself was nice, but not that exciting. I just don't get the San Fran obsession I guess, lol.

  1. Enjoying your trip. I also do not get the SF thing. We were there with Hubster whiile he was on business. Alcatraz was the only thing I enjoyed. Loved dipping my toes in the Pacific. I am sure northern California would be more to my liking.
