the temperature went from 32`f in the rockies to 82f in San Francisco..amazing we were so warm in our thermals..!! ..

we had a good sleep and got up early for breakfast so we were able to walk round San Fran before being picked up to get the RV... recreational vehicle ..or motorhome to us.. we walked up powell street where the famous cable cars run up and down the steep road but decided to wait to go on it until we return next week.. but took loads of pics..and enjoyed the lovely warm sunshine..

we were picked up at 12.30pm and after lots of instructions about the RV were under way at 4pm.. so we only made it to Vallejo on our first night....this van is amazing it is 8ft 6in wide weighs 5 tons and has separate toilet and shower .. sleeps 6 and has a full size fridge and freezer and cooker.. luxury to what we had in new Zealand..

Tuesday we set off for the Napa Valley.. we are not really into wine tasting but decided we had to try one vineyard so chose valley of the moon ... great name I thought..we left there a little tipsy and headed for the geyser n=known as little old faithful at calistoga.. it was great the water spurted
out of the ground every 7 mins which was brilliant as sometimes it can be 40 mins between it erupting.. we managed to see it blow hot water into the air 8 times so great value for money..

we continued up the 101 highway and managed to find a car park to spend the night...near Willits..
