We journeyed out this morning thinking we would try to get some pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge, but the fog was rolling in at 11:30 AM. Time for Plan B. 

We went to Salsalito to catch a ferry to San Francisco. After a wild ride through the residential streets of Salsalito looking for a Parking Lot #4, we found the lot. it was exactly a 1 mile loop from where we were parked while deciphering three different GPS’s. Remember, the driver is navigating a rather large truck on these narrow, very steep streets! We all had a good laugh when we realized what we had done!

 Arriving in SF by ferry, we quickly found a small hamburger cafe for lunch and planned out the rest of our day. The cable car ride was a must for Ron, so after finding the Millenium Building that is becoming an American ‘Leaning Tower Of Pisa’, we boarded the cable car headed to Fisherman’s Wharf. Each stop the car made, at least more six more people boarded. After making several such stops, the cable car was becoming quite packed. We looked at each other wondering how many more times we were going to be making more room for more people! By the time we reached Fisherman’s Wharf, the cable car was pact so full we were feeling like sardines. We decided we would choose a different mode of transportation on the return trip. 

At Fisherman’s Wharf we walked to Pier 39 to see the seals. They put on a fine show for us, sunning, pushing on each other, and letting out a bark every now and then. 

We stopped at See’s candy store and a few tourist shoppes before heading back to the ferry and our truck. All in all, it was a fun first day in the city of San Francisco!
