We left the campsite early this morning, and headed straight down to the Santa Cruz pier.  We'd heard that parking could be a premium and as it's a Sunday we weren't taking any chances.  Remember, our RV takes up at at least 2 (very wide) carparks.

Parked, but only just, as we had unfortunately got up close and personal with a power pole which tore into the fabric of the awning roll outside.  That was cause for a domestic. Guess something was going to happen at some stage on our journey.

Still, putting that behind us, we had some breakfast and then wandered over the Pier.  It was a glorious day, right on the beach with all sorts of rides and arcades.   Had a fantastic time - we had to go and put more money in the meter - twice!

Santa Cruz could be described as a 'hippy' sort of place, and there was certainly some sights to see as we wandered down the pier to observe the seals, (nb: we heard them before we saw them - very loud as they fight for resting space on the wooden barge.)

Left mid-afternoon, and found our way easily to San Francisco.   We'd booked a campsite right opposite the home stadium for the San Francisco forty niners.   When we arrived we went headlong to a traffic jam coming the other way - a game had just finished.   We managed to negotiate our way through (not easy in such a tank), and the luckily the police directing traffic re-opened part of the carpark for us, so we could get through - pretty good service from the men in blue - (helps if you have an accent, and look lost and distressed).
