Topic: Field Trip
Our trip included only one day in San Francisco so we decided to focus on the Golden Gate Bridge, riding the cable cars and visiting Alcatraz.
We arrived by boat so our first views of the Golden Gate were before dawn, by boat in heavy fog. Fortunately, they light it well so the photography turns hour phenomenal:
After the fog started to lift there was a nice view from across the harbor
Then we took a tour over to the far side to a viewpoint wayside
We watched a street artist create amazing skylines with spray paint:
We got a nice view of Coit Tower from our ship:
We caught a cable car by the waterfront and rode it up to the end of the line and back.
View along the way:
A view from the cable car at the top of Lombard street. In the distance you can see Coit Tower and our cruise ship in the harbor:
Alcatraz deserves its own posting so wel'l tackle that tomorrow.
