On Wednesday the girls and I decided to take the ferry to Sausalito. I had heard about this little town across the bay and I was keen to visit.
We waited for the ferry and chatted to some lovely people whose daughter had recently been studying in Sydney. We also met another couple from Geelong who were travelling all around America. One of the highlight of our own trip was meeting so many great people. (I ran into another woman from Bendigo who was buying a kettle so she could have a decent cup of tea! Seriously, American's don't get tea.)
There was a big crowd heading to Angel Island. Wonder what that's like? Maybe we'll go there next time.
We started off outside but half way across the bay it was way too windy and we had to head inside. Not before demolishing some pretty amazing donuts. Americans might not get tea but BOY do they get donuts!
I kind of regretted wearing a dress in the end. There was an awkward moment when I stood up to take some photo's and discovered my dress flying up around my shoulders. Oops.
Bye bye city.
We were welcomed by this guy. He didn't say much.
Here's an interesting fact, Otis Redding wrote his famous song, "Dock of the Bay' while staying on a houseboat at Sausalito in 1967. Wow!
Check this pair out. I've never seen a more laid back dachshund. Love her sunnies.
Her name was Diamond. We saw so many adorable dogs in San Francisco. Some in prams (?), and many in outfits. Too cute!
We had fun running around this gorgeous, windy little town. Pizza at Giovanni's, some shopping and sightseeing. As we lined up for the ferry home so did about a hundred bike riders! Apparently bike tours take people across the Golden Gate Bridge and then they return on the ferry. Maybe one day...
It was a beautiful day. A day to remember.
See you soon lovely ones xo
