We biked from fisherman's wharf over the Golden Gate Bridge, through Solcilito, up into Mill Valley, then over to Tiburon where we took a ferry back.

golden gate bridge in the fog

This is a water sculpture, an organ that is played by wave action against underwater pipes. The tide was low so we didn't hear much but we heard a little and it was very cool.

Us on the tandem bike

The bridge was obscured by fog the entire day

Angel Island

aaaah, mr. espresso in great company

That would be San Fransisco in a lot of fog

Houseboats

We biked to a place called Mill Valley, which had some redwoods. This is a replica of the mill structre that was once here.

What an awesome city park
