Day 20 & 21

August 26th and 27th.

Yesterday was a rest day. I took the ferry from Sausalito to San Francisco and wandered around the waterfront. To a casual eye, San Francisco has not thrived during Covid. At Fishermans Wharf, probably  40% of all of the restaurants were shuttered. All along the waterfront, the piers that used to be busy commercial hubs seemed empty. There were crowds in the area, but overall it seemed a lot less vibrant than I remembered.

Today we biked across the Golden Gate bridge and down the coast to half Moon Bay. Riding across the bridge was a trip; there’s a separate bike lane but the crosswinds were really quite strong and so it was an adventure riding across. The bridge is amazingly high above the water; a lot easier to appreciate on a bike than a car.
