    Big Bus Tour, Fishermans Wharf, CA

    July 10 in the United States

    The Lombard Inn was a good choice for its central location, 25 minutes walk to Fishermans Wharf and similar to the down town area, we did have a scare when on the first night the shower was ice cold with the same happening the next morning. They got the boiler fixed and it has been all good since then reducing the room rate for one day $50.00.
    Last time we were here we used the Big Bus Hop on and Hop off service, we did the same this time buying the deluxe package which gave us 48 hours and the night tour and the Sausalito tour as well. We reacquainted ourselves with the cities colourful past, and its different sectors. We took advantage of the Sausalito tour today the wealthiest part of SF, rents are up around $17,000 per month. Robin Williams lived just down the road at Tiberon, and everyone that we spoke to or heard from just gushed about the man he was and what he did for the homeless. San Francisco is the poorer for his loss.
    We returned to the North point of the Goldengate Bridge, Carl and Paola continued to the southside where they walked the bridge whilst Noela and I went back to Fisherman’s Wharf where we listened and watched the buskers, watched the seals on pier 39, and generally walked and took in the sights.
    We caught up with Carl and Paola at 5.45PM to do the Big Bus night tour over the Bay Bridge and other parts. We had an awesome guide Blake Klemett who absolutely had us entertained all trip. By the time we got off the bus it was freezing with the coastal wind coming in.
    We can thoroughly recommend the Big Bus tour service.

    Today we went cycling 🚵 around Golden Gate Park. But before that, we went to Palace Of Fine Arts and we saw some swans and birds in the pond. It was pretty and Mammy took loads of photos. When Daddy drove to golden gate park. Conor had a small bike, I had a kids medium bike, Daddy had a big adult bike and Mammy had a medium adult bike. We went Cycling on the bike path and we stopped for lunch. Me and Conor had Jumbo beef hotdog, it was delicious 😋!! Mine was plain and Conor added ketchup. Then on the way back, I stood up on my bike 🚴 and had 1 hand holding on, and it was super cool. Then I sat down and had 1 hand on the bike and suddently I crashed into the cone people were going to use for the marathon tomorrow! If you look at it, there is 1 odd cone. One has fallen down. 🙊 The bikes seat wasn't comfy and then my hands started to hurt. Then, I realised that we cycled for 2 hours such a good excercise!Read more

    Cycling 2

    July 22, 2017 in the United States

    今日はゴルデンパークの周りを自転車で乗りました。けれど、その前はパレス オブ ファイン アーツ に いきました。パレス オブ ファイン アーツ は1915年の博覧会のために作られた建物です。ギリシャの宮殿のようにキレイでした。そこの 池 に 白鳥 が いました。白鳥は可愛いかったです。ママは写真をいっぱい撮りました。その後、ダデイがゴルデンゲートパークまで運転しました。私は子供用の中型自転車、コナーは子供用の小型自転車、ママは大人用の中型自転車で、ダデイは大人用の大型自転車を使いました。50分ぐらいかかったら、私のお腹がすいてたので、ランチをたべにいきました。私はジャンボビーフホットドッグ🌭を食べました。美味しかったです!帰り道では、私が1つの手を使って、自転車の上に立ちました。すごかったです。けれど、すぐコーンにぶつかりました。1つのコーンだけが落ちていました🙀🙀 2時間自転車に乗りました!Read more

    March 5, 2017 in the United States

    Wir hatten ein zwei Tages Tour von LA nach San Francisco. Eine wunderschöne Strecke. Wir sind nicht den schnellen weg über den Highway gefahren, sonden den Freeway 1, wo wir links das Meer und rechts Berge hatten. Nachts hat der Regen leider unser Zelt unter Wasser gesetzt. Aber haben uns da schon was überlegt im das in Zukunft zu verhindern.

    San Francisco

    February 3, 2017 in the United States

    It never rains in California? Das war ein "Fake", doch zwischen Regenschauern zeigte sich auch die Sonne!
    Wir haben die Stadt erkundet mit Cable Car und zu Fuß! Und schon mal einen Blick auf unsere Queen geworfen!
    Und dann noch einen genialen Nachmittag und Abend mit Holger und privater Stadtrundfahrt

    Costco chaos

    February 11 in the United States

    Went to Costco with Dave. Bit of a test of patience as I got bumped into and stepped on a couple times. Had 4-5 items in list to get. Didn’t know where any of them were. The tactic turned out to be walk thru the store looking for item 1. Then walk through the store looking for item 2. And so on. There were also periodic stops at food stations. Very crazy. I was glad to get out. Glad we don’t have a card.
    On different note. Weather is cooler today. MumZ has nice tree in front. And nice birds in back.

    Boudin sourdough bakery

    April 3 in the United States

    They have been making the same sourdough from the same starter since 1949! Supposedly the san francisco air and water makes for a special breed of bacteria that taste delicious (they do). The way the factory is made, you can see the whole process through glass windows which is really entertaining. There was also a small museum on the history of San Francisco, and their sourdough. Oh also we took a quiz to find out what type of bread we are :DRead more
