2016 2.3 Adventure to San Francisco

Our summers adventure is winding down. Our base "camp" was metro San Francisco, with our last location having a beautiful view of the skyline of San Francisco.

Our last full day with Scout was a trip to the San Francisco Zoo! We have always enjoyed Zoo's, when raising our own children and now with our grand children. This Zoo was really a nice one. Located in western San Francisco, near the ocean, we enjoyed a beautiful day, which at times a jacket was needed to stay warm. Train rides, a carousel, good fast food, and lots of exhibits, we enjoyed all! We ended our day at the Zoo with a carousel ride for Scout. She named her horse "Lucky Luke"! Scout and Gump enjoyed the ride very much!

From the Zoo we made our way back over the Golden Gate Bridge, traffic was terrible, but we were heading to the Bay Area Discovery Museum, a kids museum. If you're ever out this way with young kids, this is a fun place to take them. Scout enjoyed a dish of ice cream(so did Gump & Gamma), with the Golden Gate in the back ground.

We'll be heading home this Friday, via Las Vegas. Jesper and Scout headed back to Sweden yesterday, while Becca had to stay to attend workshop's. So during the day we are taking care of Bunny. Yesterday we took the ferry over to San Francisco in the afternoon and met Becca for supper on the famed Fisherman's Wharf. Today takes the three of us for a day trip to Sausalito. Strolling and light shopping is the plan, along with a lunch on the water front. Wednesday we'll meet Becca up in Napa. We'll start the packing on Thursday, with maybe one more trip to the wharf. Friday we  drop Becca and Bunny at the Oakland Airport before heading South. A good time was had by all.
