Kicking back in San Francisco, California 94102 - 15,1761kms
Jun 30, 2015
After a nice sleep in we headed out for a late breakfast and some exploring including a trolley car ride which didn't quite work out as planned as the trolley cars were broken down, DOH, so nearly walked our legs off. You can see a tiny bit of what we saw below:
Before the breakdown.
And believe it or not each trolley has 4 of these timber brakes which is what stops them. Yep, the same as when we were here in 1998.
An intriguing rego plate on a motorcycle, would have liked to see who came to get on it!
Union Square known for it's shopping and here is the Westin Hotel complete with Victoria Secrets....
...and a real reason to go retail, Saks Fifth Avenue and Tiffany's. Now you're talking. Nah, didn't happen.
A recognisable speccie skyline.
An awesome fire truck with a rear steering axle complete with a driver in the rear cab as well as the front.
Hotel Fairmont. Beautiful building and interior space where we went to use an ATM.
The Grace Cathedral.
Tangles of cables are everywhere.
And a Church on Washington Square.
Heading up Lombard street before the interesting stuff starts.
The Crookedest Street - Lombard Street.
On the way up.
From the top down. This looks much more speccie than it did in 1998.
And finally heading down Powell Street. We walked over 11,000 steps today and Norm says the degree of difficulty our knees and hips can testify to at least doubled the effort involved to walk those steps....and he is absolutely right!
