Friday letters – the California edition


Dear San Francisco, I wish we had had longer, because there is so much more to see and do than we managed in two days.  

Dear legs, I am pleased that you did not let me down as we cycled over the Golden Gate Bridge. Thankfully we got the ferry back again because I think a return journey by bike might have been too much.

Dear electric bikes, What a marvellous invention you are!

Dear elephant seals, It was amazing to see so many of you on the beach – from old males to new born pups.  It was like watching a wildlife documentary and I kept expecting David Attenborough to appear and provide some commentary.

Dear William Randolph Hearst, You have a magnificent house and the view is fantastic.

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. Oh! Very much appreciate this post of things to do in SanFran as we have upcoming trip that includes it in a few months! Thanks!

  2. Oh, so you were much luckier with the weather at Hearst Castle if you actually had a view! Must be incredible. And those elephant seals are magnificent animals, the males are so big – hope you see some sea lions and harbour seals in La Jolla.

  3. You cycled over the Golden Gate Bridge, Elaine? It always seems so busy!

    • They have separate lanes at the side of the car lanes for bikes and pedestrians, otherwise I would never have contemplated the trip. It was still a bit hairy at times as pedestrians and bikes mingled together (despite what the signs said) and some cyclists were going past us very fast ( obviously not tourists like us!).

  4. As a person who rode a bicycle into a hedge in Germany, I would not be attempting to ride across the Golden Gate Bridge. I am very impressed that you did, Elaine. Well done.

Now it's your turn
