With parking restrictions eased up for the weekend, we left the car at home today and took the trolley bus from just down the road in Market street to Fisherman's Wharf. We enjoyed the views over the bay, watching the sea lions at pier 39, I screamed as the Bushman scared me and many other unsuspecting tourists and we had our first taste of San Francisco's famous clam chowder in a bread bowl. We then decided we'd walk the few blocks up to Lombard Street, the street that is so steep they made it a zig-zag so that cars could drive down it. Of course that meant several blocks of walking uphills but this is San Francisco after all - you can't walk anywhere without coming across a hill! We ended up walking back down to catch a trolley bus home which was quite a walk but took us past some gorgeous homes and past the end of Chinatown. Another fun day!
