Last Day in San Francisco

On Monday we drove to the Golden Gate Bridge so we could walk over the Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is 1 and 1/4 miles (2 km) long.  Papa drove over it because he had already walked over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Papa met us at the other end with the car. After that we went to Sasalito on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. In Sasalito we saw houseboats on the water. We talked to a man who owned a houseboat. The man said that everyone needs to paint their boat regularly so it looks neat.

After that we drove back across the Golden Gate Bridge and went to Mission Delores.  In the 1906 earthquake and fire, the Mission survived becasuse the walls were 4 foot think adobe walls, but the church next to it was badly damaged.

Then we had dinner at Scoma's, a restaurant on a wharf by Fisherman's Wharf.  I really liked the clam chowder in sourdough bread bowls which we had for dinner.  For dessert, we went to the famous chocolate factory, Ghirardelli's and I had a chocolate ice-cream.

We had a late night because we then went shoe shopping and didn't the shop till it closed at 9pm!

We wanted to watch the lunar eclipse, but there was too much fog and cloud.
