San Francisco Part 2


Coit Tower and Telegraph Hill

Taking the H-O/H-O in San Francisco doesn’t just limit you to within the city.  You can also cross the bay to Lime Point for some magnificent views of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Heading back across the bridge and into town, make sure you hike around for some great street views:

Make sure you climb Telegraph Hill.  There’s more to see than just Coit Tower and the views from atop it.  There’s also Pioneer Park at the base of the tower.  Here’s a statue of a guy you may have heard about:

On the way up the hill you’ll also find some great shots of Coit Tower as well:

Take the elevator to the top, but you’ll still have a bit of a climb to get to the observation deck:

San Francisco Part 1

On April 30 of this year Ursula and I did a rather enjoyable West Coast cruise that started in Los Angeles with stops in San Francisco; Astoria, Oregon; Victoria, British Columbia; and finishing up in Vancouver, Canada on May 6.  Starting today and over the next two weeks I’ll be presenting images of San Francisco, saving of course my favorite images for the next two Fun Photo Fridays.  So, sit back and enjoy, starting with our arrival into San Francisco:

Down the street from the cruise terminal is Pier 39, but we only stopped there long enough to capture this shot:

We hopped aboard a H-O/H-O (Hop-On, Hop-Off) bus and headed for a dim sum lunch in Chinatown:
