While in San Francisco this spring, we drove across the Golden Gate Bridge and ventured out to a hidden cove known as Muir Beach. This area had some of the most impressive tide pool sea life I have ever seen. The video includes some under-water shots taken with my iPhone thanks to my water proof case. The colors of the anemone were so vibrant, they looked like they were glowing in the sunlight. Chas and the kids had to have a hooping party on a beach just south of our RV Park in Pacifica, CA.
Our trip across the Golden Gate is un-eventful, and we didn’t get to position ourselves for impressive photos. If you have never been in person, it may be worth checking out. You can see Alcatraz Island from the bridge, and the view of the city with fog rolling in was amazing. The first part of the video is driving across in our Blondie car, the second is driving across in the bus, towing Blondie on our trailer.
Lombard Street is known as one of the most curvy roads in the world, they never would have been able to complete the street without the switchbacks that make it famous. I am lucky the curvy section is just a few hundred yards long, or I would be getting puked on from the passenger seat.
The streets in San Francisco are very steep in sections, as you can see in this video, but this would have been crazy if it were a straight road. I can’t imagine what it would be like to live on that section of the street with tourists constantly walking and driving down it.
I would like to get approval to take the bus down it, but I don’t think that would happen. I think I could do it though…
