Stop along the Way in San Francisco

View from the back of the ship up to Coit Tower in San Francisco.

Hi all– Here’s another post from our cruise from L.A. to Vancouver.  We spent a soggy day in San Francisco– seeing kids there (a highlight!) and wandering through a couple favorite museums.  Here’s the fun day out in SF…

We sailed in under the Golden Gate Bridge about 5:00 A.M.– Larry was the only one of our crew adventurous enough to get up and take photos of the arrival! (That’s the Bay Bridge in the distance.)

We met up with Ani, Brian and Little Lois for coffee, some museum wandering and a trendy Mexican lunch at Nopalito.


Our museum passes were good for the DeYoung Museum and the Legion of Honor Museum not too far away.  So we stayed dry, poking through museums for most of the day (with a Green Apple Book Shop stop in between!) — starting the the tower views in Golden Gate Park.



The afternoon ended in North Beach at a tiny Italian bakery/gelato shop.  And the then stroll over hill (literally) and dale back to our ship for the night.

It was a fine full day seeing SF from beneath our umbrellas!  Thanks for being the best ravel buddies Paul & Sue!!

    • Hi Brigid!! It was rainy fun– especially with Lois in tow. Just spend a good while catching up on your posts that I’ve missed being gone!! Your retreat sounds awesome! I’ve missed your writing… xo

    • It was a sweet stop for us. — and after the cruise we traveled with Lois (and her parents) to Hong Kong and points beyond. So I’ve had lots of chances to hang out with that girl in the last couple weeks!). Always love hearing from you Kat– you seem like an old friend by now… xo

  1. Beautiful photos, Rhonda! Thanks for taking us on the tour 😊. Your granddaughter is so cute! And those Italian pastries—wow, they look delicious, how did you ever decide which one to try?! Haha
