As Vicki and Sandy finished the marathon (Sandy went along with Vicki the last half of her 13 mile walk), Karen and I wandered along the water from the Golden Gate to the wharf. A long walk, but worth it. Lovely day. Beautiful, gorgeous, and we were there.

We stood in Ghirardelli Square before going in to enjoy a delicious sundae. The sky was spectacular. Love clouds like this. The view ended up being almost as tasty as the Ghirardelli wares. Yes indeed.

Inside Steinhart Aquarium in the Academy of Sciences building in Golden Gate Park. Not a huge aquarium, but fairly good considering it’s size.

We had to wander into this place to check it out. Once we did… it was on! Ms. Pacman and Galaga. I won one, Sandy the other. Close, both games. There were some pretty cool things in this building. Free to get in and totally worth it. They have restored many old and original coin operated games, etc. You can get a glimpse of a coin operated peep show (totally G rated) and gawk at the enormous laughing Sal. It’s worth a look and few cents…

We didn’t venture out to it this time around, but it’s impressive just looking out at it.

We took BART from San Jose to San Francisco and back again. LOVED it. We are total fans of mass transit, in whatever form it comes. Once we got to San Francisco we bought a three day pass and ended riding on buses, streetcars, and a cable car. Pretty cool, and pretty efficient.
