Honeymoon - Days 4 & 5 by James & Courtney Deming
|Hello all-ready for another installment of the honeymooners?
Yesterday our first stop was the cable car museum. That was pretty neat because we were able to see the cables for all of the cable cars in San Francisco. We then made our way, by cable car to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. We saw art by Picasso, Miro, Mondrian, Pollock, and Warhol. We also saw a photography exhibit of pictures taken by a Japanese man after WWII. Our plan was to go to Chinatown for a dim sum lunch, but the place we picked that advertised dim sum actually didn't have it. On our way back to the hotel we decided to walk, or should I say hike up to Coit tower. After that we went back to our room to rest before going to Scoma's for dinner.
Today we took a fire engine tour of San Francisco. A local couple bought an old fire house and have made it their home and museum of San Francisco fire department history. They have also restored a Mack 55 fire engine that they use for the tours. We put on real fire fighter coats and sat in the back of the truck. We saw the Presidio, Palace of the Fine Arts, Fort Point, drove over the Golden Gate Bridge and through Sausilito. We stopped at a spot across the bridge for pictures and got our picture taken wearing fire hats. It was fun, but really windy and cold on the truck. After the tour we decided to eat a Boudin's, the famous Sourdough company in town. On our way there we saw a guy steal some sunglasses from a shop. We told the cops which way he ran, but that's about it. After lunch we went back to the hotel and took a nap and the went back to Ghirardelli and bought more chocolate, walked along the beach and then went back to the Crab House for more Dugeness Killer Crab for dinner. We also had Chocolate Mousse Cake for desert and then walked back to the hotel. We've been watching John Grisham movies on TV the rest of the evening.
We also wanted to let you know that we won't have internet access for the next few days, but will fill you in when we get to Monterey.
