June 29 - Last Day in San Francisco

We woke up to another beautiful day. We mapped out our route by bus to the California Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park. We really enjoyed riding the public transportation, and it was very convenient.

By the time we got to the museum it was a little overcast, good morning to be inside. We enjoyed the museum and the planetarium. The building has a living roof, very unusual.

The sun had returned by afternoon and we enjoyed walking around the park. On our way back we walked through the Height Ashbury area. Lots of strange people. This is the old hippie hangout from the 1960's. We worked our way back to the hotel on the bus, transferring several times. I started a little packing before dinner.

We decided to go to the Buena Vista Cafe for an Irish coffee. So we took our last trip on the cable car back to the wharf. I really like the cable cars…they are a lot of fun. We were enjoying the view from our table when a local couple came up…they wanted to sit with us. It was fun to visit with them, we enjoyed their company. They told us about a great seafood place on Bush Street called Sam’s, but we didn’t make it there this time. We wondered around the wharf a little more and then caught the cable car back to our hotel.
