We arrived in San Francisco yesterday evening, enough time for a quick look around the Union Square before dinner. Our hotel is located right in the square, so very central.
This morning we caught the cable car from the Square to Fishermans Wharf. Had a look around all the different Piers, including Pier 39 before hiring our bikes to ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. We rode the bikes from Hyde Street (Pier 47) along the cycle way to the Golden Gate. It took just under 10 minutes to ride the whole length of the bridge.
On the other side, we then rode over to Sausalito for lunch. We caught the ferry from Sausalito back to Fishermans Wharf to return the bikes.
After leaving the Wharf, we walked to the bottom of the famous Lambard Street. Known as the most crooked street in the world, being a one block section with eight hairpin turns. We walked up the street and then drove back down in our Uber (taxi) on the way back to our hotel.
Tonight we went to our first baseball game at AT&T park. Playing was the San Francisco Gaints and the Washington Nationals. We had all the merchandise on supporting the local team, but sadly we lost.
Tomorrow sees more slight seeing around the city and shopping in the Square. Before heading back to Fishermans Wharf to catch the ferry to Alcatraz for our night tour. Also going to the USS Pampanito, a restored Navy submarine from World War II.
