The video below is 73 minutes long of my three days in San Francisco.

Howdy folks,

I spent all day in San Francisco again today. After fighting San Francisco traffic all day yesterday, I left the car in the garage today and got around on foot. I didn't venture very far. My first stop was at the cable car turn-around.

Next I walked around Ghirardelli Square. I resisted the temptation to buy any chocolate.

I walked down Hyde Street Pier and looked at the historic ships in the Maritime Museum.

I walked past the cannery. I resisted the chocolate earlier but there was a Coldstone Creamery next to the Cannery so I stopped for a banana caramel crunch. It's really not that hard for me to resist chocolate, ice cream however is another story.

I walked around Fisherman's Wharf again. It hasn't changed much since my first visit here back in 1975.

Next I took a cruise on San Francisco Bay. As usual it was totally gloomy by the Golden Gate Bridge.

We sailed directly under the bridge as a Cosco ship was sailing under the bridge.

It was a little bit brighter looking back toward San Francisco.

We sailed past Alcatraz.

There was some blue sky over by the Oakland Bay Bridge.

We sailed under this bridge as well. My sister Barbara was stuck on this bridge when part of it collapsed during the earthquake in 1989.

And this is where my sister used to work for many years before giving birth to my nephew.

I think I have tortured my sister enough with this trip down memory lane. I will stop now.

My trip is now over. I fly home tomorrow at 1:30. I have a Caribbean cruise booked for January, that should be my next trip.
