My journey from LA to San Francisco was punctuated only by a quick visit to 17-Mile Drive, of which the seals at “Bird” Rock were a highlight. After that, it was all stations to San Francisco for a 48-hour stay. Highlights included the Golden Gate Bridge (for obvious reasons), USS Pampanito, a knee-jarring walk down Lombard Street (no way I was going back up), riding the Cable Car and a trip to the top of Coit Tower to cap it off. I was terribly disappointed to miss out on an Alcatraz tour (it was booked out for 2 weeks following my departure) and a 49ers match which was scheduled for the same day I left. However, I don’t need much more of an excuse to return to this amazing city!
