Junie's Place

Friday, July 13, 2012


 ~~~
My daughter and granddaughter were recently on a trip to San Francisco, Ca.
This was one of the stops they made on a bicycle tour of  the city.

This beautiful rock wall serves to fence off the hillside, with the steps leading to the site of the tower.
 They walked to the top of the Coit Tower; in all, a 400 step trek.





After visiting the tower, my girls  continued riding the bikes around the city, including across the Golden Gate Bridge - a total of 14 miles of biking for the day!

  :)

This is Alli as they continued the bike ride. 





~They had a great time!~

Cycling is a great way to really see a place. I am sure SF isn't the easiest place to cycle, but if you are young and fit, I am sure it's a treat.

Your girls always find the neatest things to do, and the great places to visit. :)

:) Yes, they do, Sally! I wasn't invited along on this trip...not that I could have afforded it-or kept up with them either, on this one!! :(

They have a 'ton' of pictures , since they were taking pics with 2 cameras...

Not easy to cycle-is right, AC! (even for them!! :) )

They had a great time, traveled as far down as Monterey and Carmel-and north of S.F. to Napa and the well known vineyards...saw their favorite band perform also (Plain White Ts)...saw the fireworks on the 4th- over SF Bay!!

(sigh)
All that fun and I didn't have any of it!! (haha)

What a great way to see the city, proof in them being able to stop for a quick hike and photo op before getting on their way to the next interesting spot.
