As usual we have been walking the streets but do make use of the cablecars to get up the hills. Alcatratz was fascinating-the audio guide made it very realistic. We have been to all the viewing spots-Coit Tower,Twin Peaks and Vista Point at the Golden Bridge.Walked up Lombard Street which has sharp curves and cars can only travel in one direction. Down at the Pier,the seals have taken over a load of floating pontoons. There must have been about 500-noisy and rather smelly but fascinating to watch.Yesterday we went on a coach trip out to Muir Woods where there are amazingly tall redwood trees. We got to see lots of SF which we wouldnt have seen by foot or public transport.Today we are going to hit the shops  and will hopefully get Xmas presents. The weather has been glorious and we keep getting told how lucky we are. I would like to see the famous fog but think it happens mostly in the summer. Then tomorrow we will visit the Art gallery and no doubtwalk a few more streets.

Wowie! Thought I'ld lost you since no blogs a few days. NZ sounds/ looks as beautiful as people say. SF looks just like all the films! So lucky to see all these things in one big bang!

Much love both of us!

For some reason didn't get notification of last 2 entries so only saw them when I went to check your itinery & when you are home. This may get to you too late for you to pick it up as you are now so close to the end of your fantastic trip. Nice to see photo of Sue C and loved the San Fran ones. Now just looking forward to hearing about it all in person. Just think Ian, this will be your last flight for a while so hope it goes well and you get some sleep. Give me a ring when you are back and have time. Love Jill & Martin
