New York City

New York, New York. As soon as I arrived in the Big Apple I was taken a back by the hustle and bustle of the city. I fell in love immediately.

Day 16 – Our last day in San Francisco

So our last day after breakfast decided to check out the GG bridge again and Sausalito, the bridge was in low cloud but once over it cleared and another beautiful day.
