A San Francisco Treat!

Here are a few pictures of the sights in San Francisco. Such a fun place and so much to see in one city. I think we did it all and were only there for three days. We packed a ton in thanks to a tour that we took on our last day. My favorite things were; taking a trolley ride, seeing the Golden Gate Bridge and taking a ferry ride across the bay. It's a beautiful place with breath taking views. The weather was a bit chilly though a welcome break from the heat in Florida and Arizona. If you go this time of year take a warm jacket. The locals say the best time of year is the Fall, that's when they experience summer weather. You decide, no matter when you go you are sure to have a great time.!

Here are a few of the sights.

View of the Golden Gate Bridge. The fog was quite beautiful, especially looking back at the pictures. It's certainly something to expect any time of year.

Vintage Electric Cars that are used for public transportation and brought in from all over the world.

Hundreds of seals gather at Pier 39 every summer.

San Francisco has the largest Chinatown in the United States. A spectacular sight!

The famous "Painted Ladies" - Victorian home row. These were showcased on the television show Full House. One of my highlights from our tour. I love the city scape behind, such a contrast.

A view of the San Francisco Bay bridge from the bay. I love this shot with the sail boat. Fantastic views! (This is not a black and white picture.)

Pier 41 at Fisherman's Wharf. I thought this picture looked vintage. People were actually swimming in the water and the air temperature was in the 50's.

The famous San Francisco sign from the Market and Pier 41.

Me, in my San Francisco look, at Fisherman's Wharf in front of the bay.

And finally, the famous San Francisco Trolley. So iconic to San Francisco. A must!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures and my experience of San Francisco. It's really a wonderful city and I would certainly love to go back. There is so much to do, so much culture, beautiful parks, great food, street vendors (which I will write about in a later post), street entertainers and an energy that can't be beat.
