San Francisco walkthrough

Went on Foot through the steep streets of San Fran. Saw a part of the city.  
Lots of different trams - art eco 60s ones,  old 1900 style ones - variety and diversity of people and lifestyles, far more than in Australia.  Lots of characters on Market street.

We stayed in a YHA in the state park just the other side of the Golden Gate bridge.  Great ocean, with seals,  sea lions, dolphins and great whites.
Suprised to see "Drake bay", as Sir Francis Drake, who helped defeat the Spanish Armada,  sailed around South America and as far as San Fran... repaired his ship and then sailed to Asia and back to England .... they were much tougher and more intrepid than we are...
