But at the top we caught a cable car and, hanging on the outside, roller coasted up and down the hilly streets right back down to Market St. A slow stroll back to the hotel with a few shopping pitstops along the way. Not sure what's for dinner, but we'll venture out again soon (8.30pm now), and find something good. A fun ...

... that grip the cable. It is a job that requires amazing strength and precision. The wood blocks need to be replaced every two days which isn't a surprise when you smell them burning on the steel as the Grip controls the car downhill. Needless to say it's a bumpy ride and we had fun standing and holding on tight. There was certainly lots to see at the piers when we made it to Fisherman's Wharf.
