Sightseeing In San Francisco

The folks drove to San Francisco to do some sightseeing on Sunday.  Mom said she got a little nervous thinking about earthquakes and me being by myself.  She was concerned about getting back home to me if one happened.  Dad didn't help things by saying "I think this is the bridge they built to replace the damaged one in the 89 earthquake".  He was talking about the Bay Bridge.

The Bay Bridge - you pay a fee to cross.
Driving to the Golden Gate Bridge took a long time.  There was a lot of traffic.  TomTom wanted Dad to go a different way, but Dad doesn't like being told what to do, so he didn't listen.  Dad chose the route through downtown and all the traffic.

 Mom was glad that she thought to bring a jacket along.  It was really windy and cool by the Golden Gate Bridge.  She wasn't all that thrilled about seeing it, but decided it was fun.  The visitor's center was basically just a gift shop.  Mom expected to see a film on the building of the bridge, but there was none.

Several signs attempt to stop jumpers.

The folks walked to the first tower.

Alcatraz - the folks are touring it this coming weekend.
 The folks then drove to Fisherman's Wharf.  Dad listened to TomTom this time and they arrived quickly.  Parking in the garage is $9 an hour.  They were able to validate their parking at a restaurant and were able to get $9 taken off, so they just paid $9 since they were there for 2 hours.

Next weekend, the folks are going to tour Alcatraz.  They are going to take a ferry into Fisherman's Wharf this time and hope that works out better.  They will not have to worry about traffic and the high price of parking.
