San Francisco 2014.

February 1, 2014 our trip to San Francisco starts with a two hour flight delay in Sioux Falls, SD. We finally board around 7PM for the first leg to Denver, CO. Needless to say we missed our connection to San Francisco, so United put us up at a Double Tree, we get about 5 hours of sleep, and back to the airport we go for the 6 AM flight.

Upon arriving in San Francisco we're greeted with rain. However we're told they've been experiencing a drought, so we happily go along with this greeting.  We get checked in to our motel and we search for a city tour and we select Tower Tours for a 3 1/2 hour tour. We have found through our travels that this is good to do on the first days, helps familiarize us with our new surroundings.

The driver gave us a few ons and offs for photo taking, but mostly this was a riding tour of the city. Fisherman's wharf will be a area that we'll return to. I know, I know, lots of touristy "traps" in the area, but I'm going back for the food! They have to have some Oysters available!

One of our photo stops of course had to be the golden gate. Truly a magnificent sight. I would love to ride my motorcycle over this bridge, Highway 1 here I come!

Of course our main reason for being here arrives around 4PM today, hugs are locked and loaded..more to follow.
