If you do decide on a park north of San Francisco, the ferry is a great way to get to San Francisco as another member suggested in an earlier post. Not only do you have access to some amazing photo opportunities and vantage points, but once you land you can have a meal at some great restaurants at Ferry Plaza; amazing Vietnamese food at The Slanted Door, yummy Zagat reviewed burgers at Taylor's Refresher, locally harvested oysters at Hog Island Oyster Company, Japanese bento boxes from Delica that you can take and eat on the pier-oh, we can go on and on! One of Gemma's favorite gift shops, The Gardener, has a small outpost there. They have charming, unique gifts and housewares that you can bring home for yourselves and friends. There's Cowgirl Creamery, an artisinal cheese shop, McEvoy Olive Oil, Scharfenberger Chocolate and Sur La Table too.

The De Young Museum has lovely galleries. (Don't miss the observation deck/floor.) Right across the park is the new Academy of Sciences and right next door is the Japanese Tea Garden. If you're here in the spring you may catch the cherry trees in bloom.

One of our favorite places is Muir Woods in Marin. You can hike among old growth redwoods and take a trail to the beach.

Napa and Yountville make a nice day trip. The original Taylor's Refresher is up there not to mention the French Laundry and Cyrus.

Can you tell we like food?

We hope you have a great time!

Many thanks - sounds as though I should adjust my itinerary to spend a little more time at SF!

The idea of taking a ferry into town is very appealing compared to fighting traffic with the truck!

Generally my plan is to hit the coast at San Diego, then slowly work our way up the SF, then over to Sacramento & to some of the Gold Rush spots.

After that we will head to Las Vegas via Death Valley and then over to Tucson where we generally spend a week or two. From there, a stop at Bisbee, one of my favourite spots. After Bisbee we will be on the homeward journey and will probably break up the trip with a stop for a few days at Nashville as we have done a few times before.

With luck, when we get home the snow will all be gone and time to start getting the garden in shape!

Had to use the snow blower three times yesterday and they are predicting more coming tonight! White Christmas here for sure!
