Holiday #14

Today we had a San Francisco shuttle tour booked. It was very good although it did feel a little rushed in places. We walked down Lombard street which was beautiful, saw the 7 sisters which are the beautifully painted Victorian houses, walked through China Town (tasted a fortune cookie from the first fortune cookie factory), visited Grace cathedral, saw Mrs Doubtfire's house, drove over the Golden Gate bridge, had lunch in Saucalito (delicious sandwich) then got the ferry back past Alcatraz. I'm sure I've missed out a few of the other things as well, it was pretty jam packed with stuff. When we got back, we had a cable car ride up to the hotel which was a lot of fun. The hills were so steep, we all slid down the seats! After we got back, I think we all had a snooze then we went to Big 4 Restaurant for dinner (named after the big 4 millionaires who made their money on the railroads, not connected to Big 4 caravan parks in Australia, which made it an interesting experience. One is budget, the other is super fancy and was a great experience).
Tomorrow we have a free day so we will try to sleep in for a bit, then grab some breakfast and hit the shops!

Until next time,


  1. It sounds like you're having a great time! I sure am enjoying your trip! :-)

  2. Sounds like you're making the most of every moment.
