San Francisco

 

I was reminded of the city of San Francisco when watching the America's Cup yacht racing last year – which New Zealand lost from a seemingly unlosable position – sigh.  But if you think yacht racing is boring just look at this clip of the New Zealand boat almost flipping over and then miraculously righting itself.

 
We may not have won but the beautiful harbour was showcased.  The iconic Golden Gate bridge.  Alcatraz.  What's not to like?
I spent 3 weeks there once and enjoyed the city enormously.  I can vouch for the truth of the fact that summers in San Francisco can be a lot colder than you expect.


My first and only experience of live baseball was in San Francisco.  I found it quite mysterious – but then I guess most Americans would say the same about cricket or rugby!
I particularly enjoyed the time I spent in Sausalito.  You have to cross the Golden Gate Bridge to get there.
