SAN FRANCISCO

COMING INTO THE BAY UNDER THE BRIDGE SHOULD BE AN EXPERIENCE.

IT PROBABLY IS, BUT NOT SO MUCH AT NIGHT.

AS IT TURNS OUT, I HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO GET SOME BRIDGE PICTURES.

MY FLIGHT WAS AFTER NOON & I WAS DUE TO BE JUST ABOUT FIRST OFF THE BOAT - SO PLENTY OF TIME.

PRINCESS & THE SHORE AUTHORITIES PUT PAID TO THAT IDEA.

MY GROUP WAS INDEED AMONG THE FIRST TO BE CALLED BUT THEN WE STALLED ON THE STAIRS GOING DOWN.

PEOPLE WERE GOING DOWN USING THE ELEVATOR & HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO CUT IN LINE.

THEN THE CUSTOMS PEOPLE WERE HAVING THEIR DOG SNIFF EVERY SINGLE PASSENGER BEFORE LETTING THEM OFF THE SHIP.

I MISSED THE FLIGHT BY A BIT.

NINE HOURS TO KILL AT THE AIRPORT DID NOT SOUND LIKE FUN SO I CHECKED MY BAG IN FOR THE FLIGHT AND TOOK THE BART TRAIN INTO THE CITY BY THE BAY.

THAT WAS TWO FIRSTS - A BART RIDE & CHECKING MY BAGS & LEAVING THE AIRPORT.

ANYWAY -

SAN FRANCISCO.
