We started our day with the usual breakfast at Luques, followed by hopping onto the F Line tram to the Ferry Building Marketplace. On Saturdays, there is a big farmer's market here, which we wanted to see, along with the beautiful bay views.

We caught a cable car from outside the hotel to the Cable Car Museum. This was our first visit here. It is free to enter and well worth a visit.

Our final dinner was in Fino restaurant in the Andrews Hotel. We ate there twice on our last visit and enjoyed the food this time just as much. Unfortunately, the service wasn't quite as good and we had quite a long wait for our reserved table. It seems there are definite disadvantages to being in a group of eight.
