San Francisco Tuesday

Traveling is hard when you change time zones. Baby Scout wakes up the first night at 330am, that's 11am internal clock time for her. Last night she goes to sleep at 5pm, but sleeps in until 530am today. It's also hard on Grandpa, it only being 2 hours difference, my internal clock is all messed up too.

Tuesday we go with Becca to Air BnB's home office and we take a tour of it with Becca. Our girl knows a lot of people in her company, and they're from all corners of the world. They also have a food service in their headquarters, if you have seen the movie "Interns" with Owen Wilson you'll understand what they have. So we had a good breakfast there.

End of line on the Mason-Powell trolley.
Elmo on the street.
Afterwards, Becca has meetings to get to, so we headed to Fisherman's Wharf with Scout. These trips for us always gets us more walking and exercise. Today is a gorgeous day, sunshine, not a lot of tourist, but enough of them. All ages and nationality's.

We've got our routes down, on the muni's J-Church and Trolley. They're very user friendly, and we've met some very nice people on them  A older lady sat next to Abby and Scout yesterday, she's been in San Fran since 1959, coming west from Chicago.

We get back to our apartment around 130pm, rest up for a 1/2 hour and off to Deloris Park, about 2 blocks N of the apartment. This is not a normal 2 blocks, it's up a hill, about 37 degree grade and then down a 37 degree grade hill. I think the travel guides say there are 43 hills consisting of 49 square miles that make up San Francisco. The parking on the streets are to say the least very interesting at times.

In the park we find lots of kids and moms mostly playing in a newly built play area. Sand boxes, rubber surfaced area's to protect the falls, all very modern.

Read time with Grabby.

After supper, it's read time and then shortly thereafter our tired lil flicka Scout falls to sleep on Grabby's lap. Wednesday Ben & Julie arrive, we're looking forward to that as I know they are too.

Tired lil flicka, fast to sleep.
