Last Day

I start my last day in San Francisco.  Boo.  I'm having so much fun.  Yesterday we headed out of the city across the Golden Gate Bridge.  That in itself was worth the price of admission.

There is an area above the bridge that provides views back toward the city that are spectacular.  And of Alcatraz where we are going today.

Back into the car and up Highway 1 (note to self: come back on motorcycle!) to the canyon country of Muir Woods.  John Muir started the Sierra Club and you can see why as you wind through this neck of the woods.  Muir Woods is a National Park that protects the last stand of redwoods still standing from the good old days.  Very old.  As you walk into the forest it's really cool how people go from yack yack yacking to complete silence.  Sort of like walking into a grand cathedral.  

Fish and chips at The Pelican Inn an English pub/inn that was taken apart over there and re-assembled over here.  Ale by the pint and plenty of tartar sauce!  

Out to Muir Beach and proof that there really is a Pacific Ocean.

Skirt steak and grilled asparagus on the barbie for dinner and exhausted he drops into bed.
