Yesterday was a bit of a blur towards the end but after 12 and a half hours sleep we awoke refreshed and ready to face the day. A superb choice of hotel by Audley Travel for our first stop over. As far as I know it is Monday February 2nd here! The breakfast was huge I had a sort of full English and Mary had pancakes and fresh berries.
Off into Union Square, then down Market Street to the Ferry Building built in 1898, which is now a gourmet imporium. We had two coffees. Back to the hotel, because Malcolm’s feet were hurting in the new trainers, and then taxi to Fishermans Wharf for lunch. A look at the seals at Pier 39 and then a ride back on what they call cable cars which bear no resemblence to the Swiss equivalent.
Too busy with the video on the cable car so picture tomorrow. As we wandered round we were amazed at how many beggars there were on the streets: rather akin to The Strand in its hey day of the 80’s. Far more than in New York, now why? Tomorrow sees us off to Alcatraz.
