Mark & Connie's San Francisco Vacation 2012

Day 6 - October 15, Disney Family Museum, Muir Woods, Dinner on the Wharf

The size of the trees is apparent here.

We first had to make a pass by the corner of Lombard and Leavenworth to get a picture of the "crooked street." We had been down the street the other evening but it was dark and Connie couldn't take a picture so we had to go by this morning.

Next we went to the Disney Family Museum which is located in one of the old barracks buildings at the Presidio. It was quite impressive to look at Walt Disney and his brother Roy's life and to see what they accomplished. They created an absolute media empire. It is amazing.

When I came out of the museum, the sun was shining brightly and there wasnt a cloud in the sky, but I could hear the forg horns on the Golden Gate blowing. I looked over and could see that there was a layer of fog still under the bridge. However within about 30 minutes when we went over the bridge headed up North, the fog was gone.

After the museum we went up to Muir Woods. The place was jammed with people. We had to park quite a ways away from the entrance. I can't imagine what it would have been like on the weekend.

The walk through the woods was enjoyable. The trees aren't as large as the giant sequoias in Sequioa National Park, but they are taller and there are quite a few more of them. It was a nice walk. Pretty flat. We also saw an owl. We followed him as he made several different flights. After trying to take some photos and point him out to several other couples, we headed back to the car.

We next tried to find a place to eat in Sausalito, and found nothing that suited us so we headed back to Firsherman's Wharf and the Eagle Cafe. We had eaten there on the first day and enjoyed good food and good service. We had an excellent meal on our second visit as well. I had Atlantic Cod, fish and chips and Connie had Dungenes Crab. The fries were very good, the cole slaw was good and the iced tea was good. Of course I hadn't had anything to eat since 6:30 in the morning and by 5:00 I was fairly hungry.

Here's our best attempt at getting a photo of the owl.

We're now laying about the hotel room, looking forward to being home, although not looking forward to the 4 1/2 hour flight to Detroit.
