San Fransisco

July 19, 2014 – Headed out to San Francisco with my daughters and granddaughter.


Upon arrival, went to the rental house and dropped off our bags. We then headed out to Chloe’s for lunch. The rest of the day we stayed in the neighbourhood and got acquainted with the area.


July 20 – Took a boat cruise to Alcatraz, then toured Fishermen’s Wharf.


Got some great photos of trolley tour transportations.

Loved seeing the palm trees on Forbes and the seals near there. A seal sat posing so I just had to get a photo of the little guy.


Feet sore and getting tired of walking Fishermen’s Wharf, we decided to hop on one of these bike cabbies to Ghirardelli Square for chocolate. We then had supper at Scoma’s for my birthday dinner before heading back to the rental suite.

July 21 – Walked the Golden Gate Park. It was very lovely there. We also took in the science centre. I thought it was a bit pricey but it was a nice tour.


At the lake where the stone bridge is, you can rent paddle boats. Very nice, serene.


July 22 –  Went to see the famous winding road. There was a filming planned there. You can see the green screen at the top of the hill. Don’t know what kind of film was being produced. We didn’t stay there long because we had a cab to catch.


We went to Union Square and had lunch at the Cheese Factory. Very tasty food there.

That evening we had our last supper at Fresca’s , Peruvian food, close to the neighbourhood where we rented. The meals were very delicious. It was a nice finish to the trip.

Left early July 23
