Sausilito

More adventures from our California trip include a trip to Sausilito. It's a great little town right on the water that has some great views. My niece, Rebekah works in the Starbucks there and so she turned out to be a great tour guide for us!
Of course our first stop was at the Starbucks so that we could meet and visit her co-workers.
And then it was off to the scenic view of San Francisco which is just across the bay from the city and just across the street from the Starbucks. Of course we all had to have pictures made in front of the view.
Looking down the street from this view toward the ferry
 
Such a quaint town with some very pretty views and some really neat shops!
There is also something interesting that I had never seen before......this is a street........
And this is where it ends down below
Rebekah pointing out that this is really a street!
This is looking up the street (stairs)
Yep that is Excelsoir street that ends up as stairs.....but it's still a street!!! How weird is that???

We also ate at one of the most famous restaurants in the San Francisco, California area because of it's awesome views of the city and the food wasn't bad either, The Spinnaker.

As you can see the restaurant sits out over the water with full glass windows which are what affords you the gorgeous views.

And we visited the Yacht Club nearby. I love looking at the boats and there are mainly sailboats at this club. I would have visited the Yacht Club store, but it just happened to be closed the day we were there.
 It was a really good day and anytime I am near the water it's always good! Rebekah was such a great "Tour Guide Barbie", as we began calling her. 
Another picture for another picture perfect day!
