Couldn't resist getting a photo of Martha next to 'her' boat!
I love the cable cars. I've been to SF once before and bought a Christmas Tree ornament in the shape of a cable car. Each Christmas I relive the joy of travelling on them. So, it was wonderful to be able to share the experience with Brian and the children, who love it as much as me.
We've bought a three day pass so that we can hop on and off them (and the trolley buses) as much as we like and we're taking full advantage.
This is the view from our hotel window. The road is California and the cable cars run up and down there.
Yesterday we went to Muir woods, just outside San Francisco. It is home to the oldest Redwood forest. The trees are SO tall, some of them are over 1000 years old.
Everywhere you look there is a tree taller than the one you saw before. A very beautiful place.
It look ages to find this road. We could see people on it, but couldn't get to it. I'm glad we persisted, the view of the Golden Gate Bridge was fantastic.
Today we are off to Alcatraz! And a walk around Chinatown. Then it'll be packing the cases ready to come home tomorrow. It feels like we been away for about a month. It will be sad to leave, but I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed...
I hope to be able to update you one more time before we fly home. If not, you'll have to wait until I've got over the jet lag... And then I should be back to the jewellery! I've not bought a single bead... yet...
Take care, all.
