One day we spent just around the campground. There were lots for the kids to do. Our first campsite (we moved to another one the last day) was a spot over from the play ground so the kids loved to go over there every morning while Mark and I were getting ready. It was nice because we could still see them and keep an eye on them but they could burn off some energy.
The campground also had a big bouncy pillow and a petting zoo with a few animals.
We went to San Francisco on our last day, and it was kind of a bust. The weather said it was supposed to be cloudy, and I guess “cloudy” in SF is “foggy” anywhere else. So here are the amazing shots I got of the Golden Gate Bridge……
I knew SF was hilly, but I didn’t know it was THIS hilly. Like it’s one giant hill. Probably a good thing it doesn’t snow much here because I don’t know how you’d get around all those hills if the roads were bad.
I loved the architecture of the city. I think my favorite part was just driving around looking at the houses and the “high rent district”. We drove by “The Painted Ladies” from Full House and I jumped out and took a picture of them, along with 50 other people that were there checking it out. We also drove down the curvy road (Lombard St) and I tried to take pictures but my lens wasn’t wide angle enough.
We went down to Fisherman’s Wharf and ate at a seafood restaurant and then walked around one of the piers with a bunch of shops and went and saw the sea lions, but by the end of that, I was over it. It was cold and sprinkling and foggy so you couldn’t see any good views. Luckily we only live about 6 hrs from SF so hopefully we’ll make it back up there before we move.
Overall our first “big” camping trip was fun and a success. We checked off a lot of our bucket list for CA and it made us excited to see more. We’re not camping pros yet, but we’re getting the hang of it and the kids absolutely love it, which was the whole purpose of buying the trailer.
