Return to San Francisco

We arrived at San Francisco RV Resort on April 8th.  This park is pretty much a parking lot with RVs in it, but it's located on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, and has a spectacular view of the ocean.  It is conveniently located in Pacifica which is only 20 minutes away from San Francisco.

Our first expedition into the city was Golden Gate Park where we wanted to visit the Botanical Gardens.  We looked for parking on the street, and after about 15 minutes gave up and parked in the garage ( $15.00 for three hours).  The botanical gardens were outstanding, and we strolled around for three hours before heading home.

We only ventured into the city one more time, stopping at Giardelli's for 3 huge bags of candy.  We ate dinner at Sotto Mare in Little Italy where we got the best cioppino we've ever had - full of crab meat, mussels, shrimp and scallops. Delicious!

We were going to visit Muir Woods and Point Reyes National Park.  We got to Muir Beach Overlook heading towards Point Reyes, and the drive on Route 1 was so tedious and exhausting with its sharply winding roads that we turned around.

We'll be in Petaluma (which is near Sonoma and Napa) on April 12th for 4 nights.  Although I'm looking forward to tasting some great wines, I'll miss the ocean views.
