Bryan picked up our cute car first thing this morning:
|A seemingly ordinary muffin...|
|But NO!--- It's 'The Rebel Within' --- a soft boiled egg baked into a bacon, cheddar, chive muffin!|
|This golden fire hydrant was the only one in the entire Mission District that continued to work during the great San Francisco Fire. It was painted gold to give it a hero status and gets a fresh coat every year!|
We drove out to Golden Gate Park after breakfast to visit the de Young museum designed by Herzog and de Meuron and to see the Science Center designed by Renzo Piano.
|This 'crack' is an installation by Andy Goldsworthy. His art is really beautiful and worth checking out if you've never heard of him. There was even a documentary that we watched recently about him that was great!|
|It was so foggy we couldn't see much of the bridge at all.|
|This was the windiest, twistiest, turniest road I've ever been on. I was fine going up but started to feel a little sicky on the way back down. I was fine as soon as the road straightened out, but geeze louise...|
|A big redwood. Did you know redwoods have no natural predators other than wind? I didn't either until today!|
After our hike through Muir woods we drove up to the top of Mount Tamalpais.
|From this angle we could see San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Sausalito and the Atlantic Ocean (sort of--- there was pretty extensive cloud cover)|
|The Atlantic and Clouds|
|Everything we ate was delicious! I think this is a pretty famous culinary destination so we were really happy to get reservations!|
After our dinner we drove off into the sunset to our home-for-the-week in Sonoma!
