It took us some time to find a proper motel. Well, probably we had become a little tight-fisted. Our trip to the national parks had us getting used to low campground fees. Here we had to pay about 65 $ per night (it later turned out that this was twice the amount of money we had to pay in L. A.) for a motel not too far away from the Golden Gate Bridge.
Then we headed for downtown. We simply could not resist and drove along many of these fascinating streets feeling like Karl Malden and Michael Douglas! Did we go to Lombard street? What? This overvalued tourist trap? What do you think? Of course we did! :-D Then we went to Coit tower which offers great views of doowntown and Russian Hill.
Just in time for sunset we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and drove into the neighboring hills to get some pictures of the bridge and the city. Then we went to the beach and enjoyed the evening mood.
