Title: San Francisco..in pictures
Post by: Etienne2T on August 26, 2014, 06:45:52 pm
Some pics from arguably one of the best cities I've been to, beautiful place. Very much a Cape Town CBD feel just on a much larger scale.

Jy sal verbaas wees..ek was bietie meer as 'n maand daar, van die East Coast na die West, en die mens orals isn vriendeliker as 99% van Suid-Afrikaners en euopeans. Hulle kan nie genoeg vir jou doen nie, en sal altyd ekstra vÍr gaan om jou te help en seker te maak als is reg vir jou. :)

Good man! Yep, that is largely the reason for my trip to SFO.

Very nice.

Do not know where you stayed , but a good option is Sausalito (small town opposite the Bay)
It is basically in line with Alcatraz & Pier 39.
Lovely small harbor town and you catch the ferry across to San Fran.

Did you rent a bike?
Great option to explore the Pier area & over the Bridge  :thumleft:

Awesome to see the homage to my home town!! Just posted a couple on the sunrise/set, but riding up to Pt Reyes has to be one of the best 90 mins on a motorcycle, akin to Sommerset West to Hermanus (which I did today for the very first time, capped by some off road antics).

Here's one (a repeat, I know!) from dawn a few months ago.

(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/0c08ac6906ace9d5f80e971ac7ad648d.jpg)

I call this "car commercial hill"
(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/80f606093fdb9e5d00f6ba72fbb81fd9.jpg)

This is the city from San Bruno Mtn
(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/00143a6cfcb4b91776cb7d3615093de5.jpg)

And an obligatory shot along the way to Pt Reyes where we had to top to watch the sunset and take a conference call!
(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/06/92f7d115fc84a38c7c568d3894faa831.jpg)

And finally a quick composite of my favorite shots from today in Cape Town, SF's sister city!

My hands began to sweat when I saw this pic of the C130,
no safety attached , only the comms cable for the headset  :o

I think they are attached...look carefully....large webbing strap and a big carabiner type clip.

If I were to warrant an educated guess.....that C130 is 'Fat Albert'....the back up 'vehicle' for the Blue Angels.
