We both had a good night of sleeping. We went to bed earlier as expected due to the power outage which lasted till this morning 7:00. After taking a shower we went down for breakfast and soon after we need to make us ready for today
Yesterday evening we had contact with Ian, someone we’ve met on the wedding of Glenn and Gina. We discussed going to San Francisco together and he and his partner David would pick us up at the hotel at 8:30 in the morning.
From the hotel we went straight to San Francisco where we have seen a lot of things. We’ve actually seen more as expected. We first started with a view on the skyline of San Francisco and on Alcatraz. From there we drove into downtown San Francisco and we went to watch the painted ladies.
After taking a picture at there we went to Lombard Street where we walked it down and took some pictures. This street is a small street where cars need to pass several hair-spin turns and which is become really famous throughout the years.
After Lombard Street we went to the Fishermans warf to watch a bunch of sea-lions. Than we tried to get tickets for the Alcatraz tour on monday but it was fully booked so we’ve booked tickets online for Tuesday morning.
After the sea-lions we’ve told Ian about geocaching and he wanted to go look for some. So we picked a Geocache at near Pier 39 which was quite a big box for such a crowded area. After logging we went to the Golden Gate Bridge in the hope to get a better view on it as yesterday. It was better but there is just too much fog coming through the Golden Gate.
Then it was lunch time already. Ian and David made a reservation at Cavallo Point. The lunch was delicious, thanks Ian and David for inviting us. We had a lot of fun and discussed Geocaching a bit more. Ian was becoming more and more interested and wanted to find a couple more.
Ian selected a geocache in Sausalito so that was the next stop. Ian found the location and in a couple minutes the cache was back in its position and we looked for another one in the area. We’ve also looked around in the is small city and found a guy which is really good in balancing stones.
After Sausalito we tried to visit a lighthouse but the road to there was closed but it was a nice view. From there we went back through San Francisco and that was not a good idea. The traffic was terrible.
After arriving in Berkeley we went for a car tour around the local university and we finished the day at Chaat’s Café.
Ian and David thank you for taking us on a tour through San Francisco we’ve a had a wonderful day.
