San Francisco is a wonderful city. There is so much to see, but when you only have one day, its hard to choose what to do. To avoid the traffic we caught the ferry across to the famous Pier 39, on our way we saw Alcatraz and the amazing Golden Gate Bridge. Our first stop was to see the seals, which have taken over and made the pier their home. They smell disgusting but you could stand there all day and watch them, they are hilarious. We loved walking around the harbour, it has such a cool vibe. There are boats, seafood galore, buskers, markets and souvenir shops. After a morning on the water, we headed into the city. San Fran has some amazing architecture, beautifully designed town houses and apartment buildings, very different from anything we have back in Australia. We explored Haight St, where we found some yummy coffee and some very cool street art. This area has such an eclectic mix, it was great for people watching. We explored to the very last minute and had to make a mad taxi dash back to catch our ferry. But our lovely driver was able to drive us down the famous Lombard St, which is the crazy windy one, which was actually a lot of fun. It was such an awesome day, we love mixing up going to National Parks with trips to the city, but we are always ready to get back to nature after the hustle and bustle. The outdoors is definitely where our hearts feel at home.
