This morning we took it easy and caught up on some sleep, even creeping down for breakfast was hard work, but eventually we pulled it together and got out on the street for a busy day of sightseeing.
The biggest difference on this trip between staying in small cities and large metros is driving. We’ve been so used to practically living in the car and enjoying freedom on the roads that when we get to traffic filled streets the stress is too much and we’ve gotta put our walking shoes on!
sits on so many hills it’s a difficult town to do on foot if you’re not some kind of mega healthy, marathon runner. Joe actually wanted to hoof it uphill, but I found a good excuse to save my feet in the form of the famed cable car. You can’t go to San Francisco without riding the cable car! It’s a good job too as at one point it seemed to be moving almost vertically! San Francisco
Almost more impressive than the curvy road were the beautiful houses on it. If nothing else,
has been the best looking place we’ve seen so far. It’s so colorful and the architecture is really something else! Nothing proved this more than our next stop. We had to work for the privilege, as again it was an upward hike, but after a detour past City Hall we arrived at the Painted Ladies, a row of brightly painted Victorian houses facing San Francisco . Some people will recognise these from the opening of ‘Full House’!! Alamo Park
|Spot the difference!|
I’d been craving sushi for the last couple of days, so while there we also found a tasty sushi restaurant and had a great (although oversized) lunch. It didn’t sit well with Joe though and he complained about this for some time…I’m guessing that’ll mean no more sushi for me on this trip!
So, until tomorrow…
