Day 3

San Francisco (29 Jul 2012)

Good Morning San Francisco!
It was freezing at 10 Degree Celsius?!
Best part, we were prepared for a furry summer here?!

San Francisco is the ideal city for biking. Hence, we rented the electric bike from Blazing Saddles for effortless ascent to the Bridge….

Collecting the electrical bike @ Blazing Saddles…

Be sure to bring a jacket along as it is always pretty chilling and windy. Some people chose to cross the Golden Gate to Sausalito with return via the ferry.
We chose not to go too far, just enough to take some awesome pictures and return to Fisherman’s Wharf quickly.

Dropped by Palace of Fine Arts Theatre for capturing some beautiful pictures…

Came across a group of tourist trying to do so acrobatic stunts??!!

 

It’s really getting too chilling! Break time at the Warming Hut….

Finally…. We saw the iconic Golden Gate Bridge…The Golden Gate Bridge is the truly the most significant and internationally recognised symbols of San Francisco, definitely not to be missed!

 

Done with the bike tour and it’s time to restore our energy levels. Glad that we tried the delicious clam chowder in a bread bowl at Boudin Sourdough Bakery & Cafe. Do stand outside on the road and watch the bakers mould the dough into an assortment of cute shapes and sizes… Some says that this place is touristy but we are tourist after-all… :D

 

Pier 39 is the kind of the quintessential San Francisco tourist trap. Nevertheless,  It is always fun to walk through and do some Sea-lion watching.

Next, the well-known Lombard Street – The “Crookedest” Street in the world. It’s an uphill climb so be prepared for that. Great views from the top but the most fun is watching the cars and dozens of tourists that traipse up and down the few blocks of Lombard Street.

A bus stop along Lombard Street… The bus numbers are indicated on the lamp post.

In San Francisco, avoid driving unless you really need to. Think twice before renting a car. Reason 1, San Francisco is a city of steep hills; some of the streets are insanely steep. Reason 2, parking is scarce and costly and there are lots of rules and regulations.
Reason 3, Google navigation works faultlessly here!
Public transportation is really the way to go here :D

Looking forward to tomorrow! :P
