Day Two in San Francisco: Walking Along the Bay

After our trip to Pier 39, we decided to walk along San Francisco's Bay to the Golden Gate Bridge. We had read it was a 3.5 mile walk, but after we walked 3.5 miles, we figured it to be about 3.5 MORE miles, and found a bus route. Here are a few highlights from the walk. It was an unusually sunny, and very warm day which left us with some clear pictures, and a sunburn!
They were booked 6 weeks out....just another 'overcrowded prison' I guess :O)
Ghirardelli Square
The birth place of some YUMMY chocolate...

Lots of Ships
Here is one built by women during WW2.

The Beach
People were swimming in these cold waters along with seals and sea lions.

View from Fort Mason
This was a very steep climb, but a really great view! The buildings below were where soldiers shipped out from during WW2.

We stumbled upon this park on the way to find a bus to take us the rest of the way to the bridge!
