    Pricey by the standard of most North American cities, but reasonable compared to other offerings in SF's central areas. Simple, clean, and comfortable, some may be put off by the location near strip clubs. Safety didn't seem to be an issue as the streets were busy late into the night. Location is great for dining with all of Chinatown's culinary delights all around, and Little Italy a short walk away. The hotel is very strict with breakfast - we arrived at the breakfast room five minutes before breakfast was scheduled to end, only to find the door locked as we were told that it was too late to eat.

    ... comfortable temperature so it’s not so hard getting in. However, I am a lady… and washing in a creek is not going to suffice for me for the 2nd night in a row, so we come back up to our campground and I pull what I like to call the “army shower”. I get Aaron to hold the towel around me, whilst I use a water bottle and soap to properly wash myself. It was the most awkward thing I’ve done in a long time haha, but it certainly made me feel better ...

    ... a drought so all the fields are brown, dry, and look pretty terrible at the moment. We drive to a supermarket and get some supplies for lunch and decide to have a picnic in the park there. The park where we ate was really pretty and green, lots of people around with baby showers to family reunions and birthdays. We spent about an hour relaxing, eating and playing our charades game before deciding to drive around the town. We ...

    Time for some woods and wine

    ... to pay the entrance fee. As soon as I walk under the sign I realize what a majestic place this is. The height of these trees is unfathomable, you can stand at the bottom and not hope to see their full length. The path through the trees is a raised dock made of wood from fallen trees in the park. Along a miles of walkway signposts discuss the history of the park and new threats facing the ancient trees in the modern era. The popularity of the park has enabled the NPS to raise enough money ...

    ... of our suitcases in Manhattan for Abi (thank you Abi you are a life saver!), and saying goodbye to Manhattan, we finally visited Queens and MoMa PS1. We even enjoyed a spaghetti sandwich there. The gallery was cool but a little too cool and full of videos rather than paintings or sculpture. We then went to a bar called Dutch Kills to meet a potential business partner (Mark) and made the best of happy hour.

    ... for 20 years. There are laws to prevent them hassling other street users but they end up in a cycle of emergency room, police cells and back on the streets where there is the occasional night hostel but no public sanitation for them. Travelling into town we checked out the Coit Tower - a folly like structure provided to the city from Ms Coit. From this high tower on top of a hill we could see the city for miles. The tower also contains murals dating from the New Deal era. ...
