Today could be very neatly divided into three parts, so this post will be an overview of the day’s venues, and I will post more cogently on them, when I get to a slow point in my journey.
For now, these are places I covered, with a photo or two of each.
Jack London Square, Old Oakland, Oakland Chinatown and Downtown. There are lots of “theres”, there, unlike in the days of Gertrude Stein.
Above is Hotel Oakland, in the city’s downtown.
Next up, San Francisco’s Embarcadero, and Telegraph Hill, with its famous Coit Tower.
I felt I was getting sensory overload in the bay cities, so around 2 PM, it was farewell to this beautiful city and its underrated sister, Oakland. I headed across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and to the Golden Gate natural preserves. Here are photos from Vista Point, Sausalito and Muir Woods National Monument.
Well, that’s it for tonight. I will write more specific stuff about this fine day, tomorrow- if the Internet kicks in here at Abalone Inn Bed & Breakfast, near Point Reyes.
