With the truck in the shop, we took advantage of the smaller rental car and drove into two beautiful cities: Monterey and San Francisco, California. We explored Lover’s Point in Monterey and then drove down the coast taking in the amazing, rocky coastline and all of the wildlife as we went. A couple days later we drove into San Francisco for two nights and put on our tourist hats. On the drive in we checked out the incredible Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands north of the bay. After making it back down into the city we got settled in our hostel and took in a gorgeous rooftop sunset!
The next day we went down to the waterfront to explore the aquarium, ride on a tour boat, and (of course) hop on a cable car. The icing on the cake for us though was our first date night in more than 4 months!
