So, I'll venture to say that most people who visit San Francisco rent a car to visit wine country. Our clan rented one on a whim to go to a food truck meet-up in Marin, which I heard was beautiful and just across the Golden Gate Bridge by Sausalito.
It was a nice day in the Bay, but as soon as we crossed the bridge, we got rocked with sunshine. The Pickle napped while Phil and I sampled fare from five! food trucks. My fave food I tried was a deconstructed samosa with paneer from an Indian food truck called Curry It Up. There was a fun band playing, and once he woke up, Dylan got a kick after chasing after all the little dogs.
We swung by Corena's again in the morning and she suggested we visit Muir Woods to see the redwoods (and so Dylan could run around). It was on the back to San Fran from Marin, so we tackled the super steep, curvy and narrow road to get there. I enjoyed the chorus of "whoas" from the peanut gallery in his car seat. Unfortunately, lots of other families wanted to visit during the holiday weekend, so while our Jeep's tires touched the soil of Muir Woods, our feet never did.
On the way back, I somehow missed the turnoff to the Golden Gate Bridge overlook, and I am still kicking myself. I was really hoping for a fun family photo with San Fran and the bridge in the background like the one of Sarah and me from 2008.
I wanted to get back to Golden Gate Park since I enjoyed my visit so much last time. Once we got there, it was early evening and a bit chilly, so we didn't stay long. I did get to try something new though, since the de Young Museum wasn't open when Sarah and I visited. We went up into the tower for great views of the city.
