Days 81-82 San Francisco
Day 81… Stupid gut bug again. Leave Yosemite behind and drive 240 km (about 3.5 hrs) west towards San Francisco – the ‘City by the Bay’. And ots here I finally get to say GOODBYE! to camping and my air mattress/ sleeping bag combo… dubbed the ‘sleeping burrito’.
When we get there the group folows me out to the Camera Obscura… an obscure (no pun intended) little building that shows a live view of San Francisco in a dish-lens replicating the abilities of an actual ye olde camera. Then we walk off thru the park and see the Golden Gate Bridge. I head to the offices of where my Alcatraz tour is to redeem my voucher only to find that despite booking 6+ months ago… the only time they have for me is tomorrow at 2.30… just before I fly out. Annoyed I get and refund and then do hop on hop off tour I sell to my tour buddy for he cost of an awesome seafood dinner at Peir 39 and beer. Oh well…
Day 82… I hop up and uber a cab to town, past the crooked street to see the Ripleys Museum here. I breeze thru then train… bus back to hotel before flying out.
