Our first destination was at the Powell/Mason turntable to catch a Cable Car.
The ride ended at Fisherman's Wharf which wasn't far from where we needed to be to catch the boat to Alcatraz. (Alcatraz was intense and probably deserves its own post, I'll write more about it another time.)
This silver fellow was especially fun:
A view of the Golden Gate bridge:Castro, which was a wonderful place to spend this election night. The crowds in the restaurants and pubs were glued to the news and as we walked the streets we could occasionally hear cheering as the individual states' results came in. Daphne treated me to a birthday dinner at Chow, which was delicious. (The dining options in the Bay area are amazing. I ate so much good food. Really, I ate a lot.)
After eating and a bit more walking, we picked up Daphne's man and headed home where we drank a lot of red wine, snuggled with Thomas the cat, and continued watching the election night coverage until the very end.
It was an incredibly memorable day and night.
