Part Two: Sausalito
This is part two in a five-part series of a road trip taking us into Northern California from San Diego County. We visited San Francisco, Sausalito, Fairfield, Benicia, Suisan City, Suisan Bay, Napa, and the Delta. We went to Pier 39 in San Francisco, crossed the Golden Gate Bridge twice, saw the hundreds of houseboats in Sausalito, toured the Jelly Belly factory, fished on the delta, rode on two ferry boats, crossed over four large bridges, and many small draw bridges, saw autumn colors, saw the last of our naval ghost fleet, and viewed the gorgeous vineyards in Napa… all in five and a half days.
Scenic and Quaint
I haven’t been to Sausalito in many, many years but it left a lasting impression on me the last time I visited. I remember it as being this quaint and picturesque town west of San Francisco and on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is a must see if you are traveling to San Francisco. Just take that big ole red bridge over to the other side of the bay and follow the signs.
As I was driving over the breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge, I was hoping that Sausalito was the same charming town I remembered. Riding through town, I was happy to see that it was.
Sausalito sits on the more subdued Richardson Bay and is surrounded by hills speckled with homes that have the most amazing view. I know this because we drove up into the hills and we saw that view and It WAS amazing.
