Last weekend, I visited San Francisco for the first time (Karren had been there many times before). We stayed at the Golden Gate Hotel which we loved. It is a Bed and Breakfast Inn where the rooms are nice, the staff is amazing, and the breakfast is simple.
On Saturday, while waiting for Sarah and Steven to arrive, we visited the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.
We then walked over and met up with the Connells where we boarded a boat for Alcatraz Island. Notice our fabulous hair! :)
We thoroughly enjoyed the Alcatraz Cellhouse Audio Tour and saw amazing views of the city.
That evening, we ate at the Cheesecake Factory with our good friend and Sonya's honorary Grampa, Tom.
On Sunday, we spent the entire morning in Golden Gate Park where we saw a lake with ducks and turtles, trees, grass, swings, and ate lunch.
After Sarah and Stephen left, we went to the Golden Gate bridge area. Sonya and Karren stayed in the car and slept while I quickly ran around the Presidio of San Francisco. I was delayed and returned later than expected to a worried wife. After being scolded, we walked to Fort Point where we saw seals off the dock near the warming hut and walked out to the fort. Sonya was tired and cold, so we didn't walk across the bridge. It will have to be left for a future visit.
