After a long flight we arrived in San Fransisco to a beatiful sunny day. We checked into our hotel in China Town and then had a wander around and a chinese meal before we crashed out for 10 hours as we had been up for 24 hours.
On waking up on our first day in San Fransisco we had a wander and found ourselves in Union Square which brought back memories of when we were here before, some 23 years ago. There was a made up ice skating rink in the centre of the square right opposite Macy's. We stood for some time watching the skaters before we caught an open top bus for a tour of the city. We were shown a number of interesting sights and stopped at Golden Gate Park which is bigger than Central Park in New York, then we carried on until we reached the Golden Gate Bridge which we drove over and back, then on down to Pier 39 which was full of shops and restaurants. We didn't recognise any of this as we hadn't been to this pier before. After spending a while there we then wandered on further down the road were we came to Fisherman' s Wharf which was were we had been before. We enjoyed a few hours wandering around before making our way back to Union Square on the open top bus.
Tonight we are going back to Union Square and going into Lefty O,Douls were had been before some 23 years ago. As you can gather, this is a pub.
