At $90 per nite ( cash, so no tax) the hotel was good value. It was very clean, had comfortable beds, had a good size bathroom, had no air con or ceiling fan - but San Fran always ?? cools down at nite time, It was reasonably quiet, close to Union Sq and Market St. Breakfast was good, cereal, bolied eggs, toast, coffee, tea - so no complaints

Moving through the Fisherman's Wharf area, it's more and more cafes and restaurants (mostly seafood - go figure)! Clam Chowder seemed to be the specialty for most of these places and usually served in a crusty bun, so you get to eat the bowl as well - so 70s...LOL!!

That was successful so after a little bit of window shopping we found a nice little seafood/grill restaurant to have an early dinner consisting of a couple of perfectly cooked steaks and a couple of nice seafood dishes, we jumped back on the cable car and headed back to the hotel.

... to crank up the volume and from then till about 3:00 in between sleeps the screaming and shouting and yelling started. Still I put this down to Friday night fever and we did get around 8 hours plus sleep so woke up feeling refreshed and yabbering about the noise last night. Our room is on the 6th floor overlooking Geary St (busy street) but is okay although wouldn't call it deluxe. So welcome to the US of A folks. More to come cheers the travelling ...
... a whistle stop tour of the Coit Tower and Union Square before taking the train back to Sara's.
We decided that the next day it would be best to see the surrounding areas of San Fran as true adopted Americans would, by car! As we made our way through the city, our trusted Nissan screamed in despair trying to climb the endless hills and there was no chance of Abbie recreating any scenes from the film Bullitt! However we were rewarded for losing half a tank ...
It was getting quite late so we got Erin's phone to navigate us to the Samuel Taylor State Park near Fairfax where I had booked our first two nights. It was nearly dark by the time we arrived but to our relief "CHARLES - 029" was one of the names listed on the un-manned ranger hut at the camp entrance so we drove in, found plot 29 and parked up. Jet lag kicking in big time (it was afterall 5am GMT) we set up the beds and crashed.
