    The first problem I noticed was that this hotel doesn't have enough parking. Next, when I was checking in someone complained about the WiFi stopping working. He also complained he had booked a room with air conditioning but his room didn't have any. The staff were totally unconcerned. When I went to my room I discovered I didn't have a chair. I requested one and they delivered a metal folding chair. I tried to use the WiFi and discovered I had problems too. The network I was supposed to use didn't appear at all on either of my computers. The bathroom was large but had no counter space. Since I couldn't use the Internet I tried the TV and found it only had 12 channels and many of them weren't very clear. I tried to charge my phone. The next day I discovered it hadn't charged. It turned out the outlet I used didn't work.

    ... on rain for this entire trip and today was the first day we encountered it so it was okay. We shopped, we got in from the cold rain and had a hot bowel of clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl at Boudin’s Bakery (which is famous in San Francisco). It was so much food we split the sourdough bowl and we still couldn’t finish even half of it. We fed the pigeons. We shopped a lot today. Fisherman’s Wharf is very touristy and ...

    ... of a laundromat!!

    At lunchtime, we we headed out in gorgeous sunshine back to the pier area, this time pier 15 to visit the Exploratorium which is like Scienceworks on steroids. The kids had a ball and we must have spent at least 3 hours there. A wander along the foreshore to Pier 39 for dinner and a humongous ice cream for GC. It has a great atmosphere there with street performers and everyone in a friendly mood. We spotted ...

    ... That was helpful as San Francisco is brutally expensive. On top of high prices there are taxes on top of taxes on top of more taxes. I can't imagine living here unless you are extremely wealthy.

    The restaurant proved to be outstanding. It is called Cioppino. It is named after their signature dish, which is what I choose. It is a stew full of fish, crab and shellfish. It is all simmered in a marinara sauce. It was delicious! Annie enjoyed a salmon dinner. We ...

    ... Motor Inn, which was in a great location on Lombard street.  We walked on to Fisherman’s wharf and had a great meal at Boudin’s Bakery where Sourdough bread was the speciality.  I had Clam Chowder to tick it off Isabel’s list and we finished with lava cake and apple pie.  Definitely the most unhealthy day we’ve had in while but we all loved it!  A quick taxi ride home and to bed…ready for ...

    ... cafe in the sun!!! soooo beautiful!!

    With a list of hotels we took a look at the first one. It was 115$ the night. We drove to another hotel and this was 106$ included breakfast. So we decided to stay here. After we brought our bags into our room we drove to the pier.
    We wanted to park somewhere and walk around a little. We thought we had found one but fortunately Spatz was checking the other cars to see if they have a ...
