Back to Marina
The mural on the car park.
To catch the MUNI trolley bus back to Marina we walked along North Point. Where it crossed Hyde was our stop and there we waited.
A closer look at the fare list by the driver confirmed that we could have had the special rate for seniors. The trolley bus was almost empty and no-one was requesting it to stop either. Our driver was accelerating and then stopping sharply at all the traffic lights and four way stops that made up the route.
We made it back to Marina very quickly!
Our meal in Marina
Marina does have lots of great restaurants and we decided to treat ourselves on this our first night ashore. We went to Izzy’s which was a block up from the hotel on a side street off Chestnut. We were there early and managed to get a table without reservations.
The service in this restaurant is some of the best that I have ever had anywhere. We chatted to the server about Puerto Vallarta and Cabo and about our experiences there. He agreed with us that Cabo was a place not to be visited twice.
The meals at Izzy’s are so big that we knew not to have any starters. I had a steak with creamed spinach and Izzy’s special potatoes, all washed down with a glorious red wine.
The meal was expensive but it was well worth it.
On the way back to the hotel we called at the Apple store which was still open so late on a Friday evening. I had a good look around the store. I was pretty excited to see a ‘Cars McQueen’ iPhone controlled electric car. That was until I saw the price was $499 ex tax.
Traffic on Lombard was easing off as we walked back to the hotel for our first night’s sleep in San Francisco.
