More Visitors!! Amy and Strahan were here for a few days. And John got back from working up North. We had lots of fun exploring San Francisco.

We walked in the Marin Headlands Park to take in the views of the Bridge:
We took Renova out for an evening sail in the Bay, with great views of Alcatraz and the City:

We saw the Cable Car Museum:

We walked through the huge Golden Gate Park:

We took the ferry to Alcatraz...
