Going across the Golden Gate in the fog.

In the fog.

We found the wharf and a place to park.

Lots of Segways.

Kids ready for a cruise.

And Pappa

Can you see the bridge? We were right below it.

The Rock.

More Alcatraz.

Good looking place, don't you think?

Now, you can see the bridge!

Sea Lions on the pier 39 next to where we docked.

Next stop the Aquarium.

In the glass tunnel.

Ava in the tank.

She got out.

Planned escape or is something else going on?

Another tunnel with sharks.

This one was posing.

Streetcar ride of course. Use to be free. Now $6 each one...

Cruising through Chinatown

One of many interesting buildings in SF.

Waiting on the return streetcar.

Heading back on different route.

Top of Lombard Street.

Heading down.

So-So view down the hill.

Lots of pretty front yards.

The bottom.

Still a little foggy on the way home.

We are out of here. Traffic and all!

We spent the day at the Wharf in San Francisco.

We took the kids on a 60 minute cruise around the bay, which went under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz. The bridge was covered with fog which made it odd to listen to the narration and not see anything. Jay was interested in the history of Alcatraz.

After the cruise we walked over to Pier 39 and watched the Sea Lions. They were noisy and doing a lot of showing off.

The kids wanted to go through the Aquarium next. They got to touch a stingray and tiger shark. Pappa and Mamu were a little disappointed with the Aquarium. You can see the whole thing in less than an hour. We have been to the Aquarium in Tennessee and it took half a day to visit.

You can't visit San Francisco and not ride on the cable car. We had to walk a few blocks to get to the cars. We took it to Union Square, got something to drink and got back in line to ride the car back. It is $6.00 one way. So $48.00 later we got back to our car. Jay got to ride standing on the side holding on. Just like in the movies.

We drove down Lombard Street. It was difficult to get pictures. We did our best.
