I left my heart in San Francisco

After breaking camp I headed to San Francisco. Naturally my first stop was to see the Painted Ladies, the houses in the opening of the classic television series Full House. After looking for the Tanners, I headed down to Fishermans Wharf. I wandered around there for a while snapping pictures here and there.

I was just about to head back to the track when I passed a tour boat that was just about to leave. I paid $15 for an hour trip under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz. The Fog was really bad so I thought this might be my only shot to get some shots of the bridge.

On the way back to the truck I stopped at In `N Out Burger. It was a good burger, but I still don’t get the hype. Outside I ran into a one-man-band. This guy was awesome. He was singing, playing guitar, drums harmonica, kazoo… it was incredible.

Just before heading back over the Golden Gate Bridge, I stopped at the Palace of Fine Arts. They were doing some construction inside, but it was still incredible, like something out of ancient Greece.

On the other side of the bay I stopped to see if I could get some shots of the bridge. It was foggy and I couldn’t see the other side of the bridge and sometime the near side. Every now and then the fog would clear for about 10 seconds and I could get a couple shots off.

My last stop of the day was San Quentin. I figured it was only about 5 minutes out of the way so I drove down. I could get close enough to get any good shots of the prison itself, but I got a shot of me in front of the sign.

Another KOA for the night, tomorrow I visit the TWiT Cottage
