San Francisco Trip - First Few Days

Day 1| Lots to do on the first day #sanfrancisco #cablecars #gracecathedral #fairmont #limbardst #aquarium on bay #fishermanswharf #Pier39 #ghirardellisquare. Lots of walking but it was a great day.


Day 2| Golden Gate Bridge and Muir Woods - a return trip after many years. #muirwoods #goldengatebridge #mdwblogspot


Day 3| Sonoma / Napa Valley.  What a difference in temp between SF (16•Celsius) vs Sonoma and Napa’s 30•Celsius). Beautiful and scenic drive.  There was a wine tasting train you can take too.
