August, 2014 Archives

Landed and made our way out. Must have logged 5 miles walking all over the city. Highlights were the quiet and architecturally beautiful neighborhoods around Coit Tower and the lounging Sea Lions resting on the docks of Fishermans Wharf where we had a clear view of Alcatraz. Telegraph Hill was an extremely angled road that I remembered from the crazy scene from ‘The Hulk’. After this we wandered through Chinatown but while it may have been bigger than the one in NY I enjoy the layout of the one in NYC much better. Finished the day at 21st Amendment ‘Brewery’ which, like most breweries, wound up being no more than a glorified brewpub carrying a wide variety of offerings.

The highlight may have been the campsite we spent the first night in. Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge, Centennial campground offered amazing views of the bay, bridge, and city all in one. We had dinner on a picnic table as the sun went down and the lights of San Fran appeared in the distance.
