We headed on towards the bridge, with the bridge giving tantalising glimpses of itself to us; as we got to the bridge it slowly unveiled itself and I finally got a view of it and got some good photos of the bridge and the fog.
Disembarking I decided to take the tram down to the Ferry Building and get a burger from a place that a colleague had recommended to me, my effort was rewarded, it was a great burger! :D
I then jumped onto the #21 bus and crossed town to Alamo Square to see the Painted Ladies, they were pretty cool and the views over the city skyline mightly impressive. From here I headed deeper in to Haight and got to the Haight/ Ashbury junction, gazing at all the impressive houses on the way. I liked this district, it made me smile for no apparent reason. It felt like a really nice (if not very expensive) place to live and be in. I sauntered down Haight Street, jumped back onto the bus and headed back into Downtown and saw the City Hall and all the fantastic architecure in this area.
Finally I got back to the hostel, grabbed my bags and took the BART back to SFO airport ready for my flight back to Blighty; grinning at the memories of a fantastic weekend - I may not have seen everything I'd wanted, and done all I'd have liked due to the weather but I'd met some AMAZING people and that made the weekend better than I could have hoped for!
