California Vacation Part 7

From San Francisco we crossed the foggy Golden Gate Bridge and visited the foggy Rodeo Beach in Marin County.

To me the views opposite the beach were just as beautiful.

On our last day in California we visited Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco for some shopping and very expensive hot fudge sundaes. Delicious!

I think this concludes my posts on our vacation to California. Check out the links below for all the other fun stuff we did.

We spent part of an afternoon shopping up and down the Haight/Ashbury area which apparently is popular to some. Our relatives who live close by called it “The Haight” (pronounced like “hate”).

It was in this area out of all of San Francisco that I saw the most number of homeless people.

After The Haight we went to Balmy alley to check out the art murals which apparently change from time to time.

More sites around the Balmy alley area. My husband thought it was the ‘mission district” but I don’t know.

We also just kind of drove around San Francisco checking out all the architecture of the houses crammed together on the hills of the city. Some of the hills were so steep you couldn’t even see over the top of where the street went. It was like going over a cliff 😂.

We also drove by the Full House house!

During our first full day we took a cruise across the San Francisco Bay to tour Alcatraz. The tour was really cool especially if you follow along with the audio they provide.

We took a relaxing, guided tour around the bay and saw many cool sights including the Golden Gate Bridge.

We walked around and shopped at Pier 39 in between the two cruises and also headed back there for dinner at the Crab House.

More to come…
