Modes of transportation

One of the best things about San Francisco is all the different modes of transportation we were able to ride. One of our favorites is the cable car, but the street car and boat are close seconds. I just realized we have been on eight different modes of transportation in the past week: plane, train, cable car, street car, boat, bus, walking and automobile.

The street cars have been brought in from Washington D.C., Chicago and Boston. I like to think I am riding on the same street car as my Grandfather did in Chicago when he was young.

Sights of spring abound.

I love all the different colored Victorian houses each with their unique details.

The Bay Bridge

On a whim we decided to take a bay tour. Riding under the Golden Gate Bridge is always a thrill not to be missed.

At times it was a little breezy, but the views made up for it.

For one of the best free views of the city, take the glass elevator at the Westin St. Francis up to the 33rd floor. Spectacular to say the least!!
