San Francisco Tour...

On our first full day we decided to do the whole touristic thing. A full 5 hour tour including boats, buses and walking. Much of it I'd seen before on previous trips to SF but then much I hadn't. Besides, travelling with Stu meant I was seeing with fresh eyes anyway.

Prior to the tour we went to Lori's Diner on Powell and a mammoth country breakfast with all the trimmings.

The tour itself started at the port of San Fran and took in the following:-

▪ The Ferry Building
Sausalito
Golden Gate Bridge
▪ Chinatown (guided walk)
Palace of Fine Arts
Nob Hill
▪ Ferry/Bay Cruise
Grace Cathedral
▪ Lombard Street - Downhill Walk
Golden Gate Park
▪ Japanese Tea Garden
De Young Museum Lookout Tower
Alamo Square Park "7 Sisters"

After this epic tour I was not only tired and hungry but needed my bed. The jet lag was sure catching up with us both so we settled for a Maccy Dee on the walk back and headed for our the hotel. Early night for us.
