San Francisco Vacation – Day 1 – Sonoma Valley

Prelude Janet and I decided to take another vacation, probably because I failed to organize a winter ski vacation.  Going to San Francisco came up because, well, it’s supposed to be nice to visit and didn’t have any specific preparation requirements other than pondering what we wanted to do when … Continue reading

San Francisco – Day 2 – Muir Woods

Monday we woke up early and packed up to head to Muir Woods on the suggestion that it was a place best visited early before the crowds. Even with the unexpectedly long drive, winding through a lot of hilly roads, we were there just before 8. We happened to find … Continue reading

San Francisco Day 2 – Golden Gate Bridge

After leaving Muir Woods, where we ended up staying a good bit longer than originally planned, we drove down to the Golden Gate Bridge North overlook.  It was a pretty foggy / cloudy day so I shot some pictures of the bridge disappearing into the clouds.  We spent a few … Continue reading

San Francisco Day 3 – Yosemite Valley

So, San Francisco Day 3, happened quite a way out of San Francisco in Yosemite Valley.  We drove out to the North, across some other large bridges which are not nearly as famous as the Golden Gate.  We drove the three or four hours out to Yosemite National Park – … Continue reading

San Francisco Day 6 – San Francisco

Now for your oddly titled post… Day six of the San Francisco trip was actually spent *in* San Francisco. We stayed close to downtown at Adante Hotel, which was good, because driving would have been near impossible, but bad because the hotel itself was kinda dumpy, and did not have … Continue reading

San Francisco Day 7 – San Francisco

Another awkwardly titled post, but anyway… Our second say in San Francisco we got lucky at snagged last minute tickets to Alcatraz for the morning.  We didn’t think it would have been a sold-out kind of tour, but it apparently is, and when we first looked tickets weren’t available, but … Continue reading
