Monday June 21 - San Francisco
Today we took the trolley again but this time we went to Fishermans Wharf. We walked around there a bit and then headed over to the San Francisco Maritime National Park. It is the only floating National Park. We walked around on a few of the boats, took in beatiful views and Julia go another Jr Ranger Badge.
We hopped a trolley back to the hotel to get the car so we could go over to the Golden Gate National Park. We didnt find the visitor center for the Ranger badge quickly but we did find the SF Science Center in the park so we spent a few hours there. Planetarium, Aquarium and History Museum so it was fun.
The Science Center closed so we thought we better take the time to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. Took a quick drive to the vista on the other side and then noticed Sausalito was just around the corner so we drove through there as well. No parking so we decided to to head back and eat at the hotel. Well, ended up coming back by way of Chinatown and were lucky enough to find a parking spot! Next to impossible. Had a great dinner at New Woey Loy Goey - you can see on the right side of the pic. Not really new - been there since 1934 said the sign. Then a few computer games at the hotel and bed. It was a great day. Julia and I both agreed the highlight of today was walking though the old sailing cargo ship from late 1800.
Tomorrow is Alcatraz and then out to hotel near Six Flags Discovery.
