Reflections of the City
After brunch we walked out on a pier near the Ferry Building and through the Ferry Building shops
The Bay Bridge in the fog

After spending the morning with family we had plans to go to Baker Beach and the Botanical Gardens but the weather didn't cooperate. The fog rolled in early and fast.

After driving around for awhile we headed back to the hotel. We decided to walk from our hotel in Union Square to Chinatown and then through the North Beach neighborhood to Lombard Street. We had pictures in mind that we wanted to take there, too.
Eventually we made our way to Lombard Street and climbed a few steep blocks to the base of the curvy section. I had hoped to take time lapse pictures of cars coming down the curves, but again my plans were not meant to be. The photos that I'd taken inspiration from were obviously shot from an angle that was inaccessible to me. Either the bushes had grown too tall or the photographer who inspired me was shooting from a lift of some sort. Either way, most of the lights coming down the hill were not visible and there weren't many cars, either. Oh well! It just wasn't meant to be this trip.
By this point in the evening we were exhausted. We had walked quite a ways so we decided to catch the next cab we saw. Soon we were zipping back to our hotel ready for another good night's sleep, our last night in San Francisco.
