Back on dry land we visit the "sea-lion'lebrities" at pier 39 before a crab lunch. We spend the afternoon riding around the cablecars and walking through union square area. (As with the world series, football and a host of other wrongly named things, the cablecars are not what the rest of the world would call a cable car, these are tramcars pulled up the hils by underground cables. Still very cool and unique to San Francisco tho).
We head back to our hotel and wrap up warm before we head out to Monster Park (formerly Candlestick Park) where we watch the San Francisco 49'ers play the San Diego Chargers at American football (not football)
Next morning we rent bikes and ride along the waterfront to the Golden Gate Bridge which today is visible. We cycle over the bridge to Sausalito from where we get the ferry back. More crab for lunch before we are back in the car and on the road again, its a shame because San Francisco is brilliant and we could spend much more time here.
We take highway 5 down California, its a fairly average drive along a motorway. Eventually we cut over to highway 58 and, as its dark, we stop in Tehachapi.
