First we drove over the Golden Gate Bridge, then we parked and walked back across it. It was very windy but very warm and there was no smog, it was unusually clear. The views were amazing.
You can see how windy it was just from looking at our hair. The third person in this photo is Gail, Lynn's sister, who has joined us for the weekend.
After a great lunch, where I had a traditional San Francisco meal of clam chowder in a sourdough bread soup bowl, we drove down the wibbley-wobbley road called Lombard Street. That was quite a white-knuckle ride driving down there, I don't think I've ever seen such a steep, narrow, twisty road before!
Next thing on the agenda was a ride on a cable car. That too was great fun on the steep hills they have in San Francisco. I couldn't believe that people really are allowed to ride on the outside of the cars - not something you'd ever find me doing, I'm far too much of a coward, but Gail did as it's something she'd always wanted to do.
Then we visited a chocolate shop, where we could see chocolate being made. All I can say is that it's a good thing that I couldn't really take chocolate home with me otherwise I could have bought out the shop. It smelled delicious in there.
By now, it was getting late, and we hadn't eaten for hours and hours and hours (well, at least 3 hours), so walked back through Fishermans Wharf to a great restaurant which was crowded, noisy and served the most delicious fish I have ever eaten. Here we are, like the 3 wise monkeys, waiting for our table.
Today we are having a real all-American day. We are going to see one of Lynn and Joe's grandsons in a soccer game and then one of their granddaughters in a cheerleading group at a football game and this evening we are having a barbecue, where one of their sons will be making smoked ribs and their daughter is making baked beans, neither of which I have ever eaten before.
Tomorrow, the adventure comes to an end and I have to go home, but, thanks to Lynn and Joe, I will be going home with some wonderful memories of the places I've seen and the things we've done. I will also be going home feeling that I have left some very special friends in San Francisco.
