Ferries and cable cars and antique trolleys

Continuing Lexie's San Francisco tour, today was an old-timey San Francisco travel day.

We started with a Cable Car ride to the Ferry Building which pre-dates the 1908 1906 earthquake.

Then a ferry across the bay to Sausalito.

After lunch at a bay side cafe, we take the ferry back, and catch the F-line to Fisherman's Wharf for some souvenir shopping and what many consider the epitome of California cuisine - an In-and-Out Burger. The San Francisco F-Line may be the most interesting public transit anywhere. All the trolleys on the F-Line are antique trolley cars from municipal railroads all over the world.

Appropriately, we are riding an antique Kansas City trolley.

Thanks friendly neighborhood historian. Corrected now.

My only excuse is that I have been a long suffering Cub fan for longer than I have been a San Francisco resident,and the year 1908 is burned into my memory. That being the last time the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.
