Where I stayed
Heritage Marina Hotel
Yesterday we got an early start, and we were able to go to the Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Street before lunch. Lombard Street is famous because the road is a zig zag on a huge hill! We took a walk on it, and drove down it. After lunch we went to Berkley to explore. There is a street called telegraph street that we heard described as "modern day haight ashbury". We went on a tuesday, so there was not too much going on. On Saturdays Telegraph Avenue is shut down and there are tents that line the street with vendors. Leaving Telegraph Ave we were able to get a glimpse of U.C. Berkley, which looked very nice. We went back to the hotel afterward for a much needed nap! After our nap we went out to dinner at place called "Nicks Crispy Taco". We were meeting Amie's cousin Billy there for some tacos. It took forever to get a table, but once we did we had some good eats and good times.
This morning we headed out of San Francisco, and stopped in Sausalito for breakfast. We went to this cute local place, and got a table outside facing the bay. We had a great breakfast, lots of tea and coffee! We went to the Muir woods, and then a 2 mile walk within the woods. Sarah said "it looks like a maze of giants!". The trees were gorgeous and they looked like they were touching the sky. We had a really fun walk!
We are now stuck in a bit of congestion on our way to Lake Tahoe. We will be there for two days, and we cant wait to relax!
We are working on the pictures!
