San Francisco Day Trip

Posted by olemike on 10/01/2012

What a day this was!  For some time, we had been planning on taking Kaitlyn and Zackary for a trip to San Francisco for a cable car ride.  We went via a Ferry Boat  from the Vallejo ferry terminal.

It takes just about an hour to get to Pier 41 which is almost right at Fisherman’s Wharf.  Some of the more picturesque sights we saw along the way were the Richmond bridge,  the Golden Gate bridge, and Alcatraz.   It is a beautiful ride.

We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather than we experienced.  It was a perfect fall day.

Even though I have ridden the cable cars many times, I always still enjoy it.  We also had a good time talking to others waiting in line (about an hour).  We met some folks from Illinois, Connecticut, and Kansas.

We also happened to be in the wharf area when a cruise ship came steaming into the SF bay.  The thing was huge.  Take a look.

And a day in San Francisco must include some ice cream at the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory.  It’s always a great way to end the visit.

Needless to say, we were all exhausted (well,  at least Leona and I were).  I did fall asleep on the return Ferry ride.  We certainly slept good last night.

I am now waiting for some of my Missouri friends and relatives to come out and take this trip with us.  Yes, you know who you are.  You won’t regret it.
