Seeing as that's where my photos start. I had some memory card issues and lost everything leading up to our first big stop, San Fran, so unfortunately no photos from Washington or the Oregon coast :(
I was really impressed with this city. I loved the shops and restaurants (the best spaghetti carbonara!) and especially walking along the waterfront. And yes the Golden Gate bridge is just as you imagine, huge!! We walked all over the place, including up some of the steepest streets (including some so steep, they had stairs!). Even our hotel was lovely, the San Remo, in North Beach was quaint and the staff were so great with suggestions and just loved Kea.
