September 30th (Day 28): San Francisco
|Guess who that is with the Golden Gate Bridge behind …|
From Mendocino we drove all the way south along the windy state route 1, visiting another lighthouse, stopping in Bodega Bay for a light lunch, stopping at Point Reyes Station for coffee, and stopping in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area to enjoy a view of the Golden Gate Bridge with the city of San Francisco in the background.
We found a motel at the end of Lombard Street close to the Presidio area for our last night during that vacation. In the evening we went down to the marina, passing by the Exploratorium. After sunset we returned to Lombard Street and found a nice little restaurant there – the “Taste of the Himalayas” – to have some Asian dinner.
And that was it ! The loop has been closed after driving 3600 miles with our rental car. We arrived where we started one month before. A United Airlines flight would take us back to Frankfurt, Germany, early afternoon the next day.
