We went to Muir Woods and took a several mile hike… main trail was a 2 mile loop…but we kept taking side trips on other trails. so it worked out to be more than 2. It really surprised me that the only child who gave out and started whining, and ended up being carried was Ian, but really, what can you expect from a 2 year old, he did great to go as far as he did… The up and down and uneven ground killed my legs and feet, I was so glad every time we hit a paved part of the path, or even better, a boardwalk.

By the time we were done there it was time for lunch, hubby drove around for an hour before he found a place to eat… we ate, then it the Golden Gate Bridge, walked halfway out, took some pictures, walked back… by the time we got back the 6 year old was whining about her legs hurting, and mine hurt too… then we took the road up the mountain right next to the bridge. Hubby said there was a lighthouse up there, we went all the way to the top, and parked, went through the tunnels and found where and old WWII gun turret was, did a little bit more hiking and found the look out and bunker above it, by then the fog was rolling in so we headed back to the hotel. We are gonna go to the microbrewery we went to last night, then call it an early evening, and bring the kids back to the room, I am gonna take a load of laundry, mostly the baby’s jeans, to wash them and let hubby deal with the kids for a bit. Ahh… peace!

The plan for tomorrow is Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Square and I don’t know what else before we head further down the coast and find a motel down there.
