Terri and I have been vacationing on the West Coast for the last week (we still have a couple more days ahead of us) but I thought it would be a good time to get the ball rolling on what to expect for the next several posts.
After meeting Terri in Fort Worth, Texas we flew to San Francisco, California the following morning; rented a car (a lower-end version of our own Chevrolet Impala); and, headed south. We had an adventure in Big Basin as we followed El Honda Road to Old El Honda Road. As a side-note, the Old El Honda Road into Big Basin is not for the feint of heart as it basically narrows down to a single lane mountain side road with no guard rails or any sort of safety measures aside from your driving skills and nerves of steel. Once settled into the seaside city of Monterey we took day trips and visited the famous Monterey Aquarium and Cannery Row as well as the 17 Mile Drive and some of the State Parks found nearby.
After four days, we headed back north to San Francisco to spend the rest of our vacation time in and about the city. We cruised the bay, visited with the Sea Lions, spent some time on the more famous Whaler’s Wharf and also the world re-known Pier 39 as well. We visited the Golden Gate Bridge via boat tour, bus tour, and even made our way to Sausalito for a quick pass through visit.
I have over 2000 pictures (so far) to review and process … and share. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed this vacation so far.
