Beat LA (San Francisco: Day 3)

So here I go, picking back up on our vacation adventure! What a packed full of fun day and this is only what we did until mid-afternoon! 

First thing in the morning we woke up and went to Pier 39 to catch a little boat tour of the Bay.  It was a super touristy thing to do, but we wanted to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz but didn't want to give up all the time it woudl take to GO to either place.  So we decided to hop on the boat for a one hour tour that took us out to the bridge around Alcatraz and Angel Island and back to Pier 39.  I was actually surprised, it was really fun!  We got to see alot for one hour, it was informative without being overwhelming and it was not too crowded (we had a tip that it was way less crowded in the mornings--thanks!)

Then we hopped off the boat and scooted to the Giants game against the Dodgers.  As I mentioned before we didn't get to go when we originally planned, but we decided that we still wanted to go, since the park is gorgeous and overlooks the bay.  And it was a beautiful day!  Perfect for baseball (and by baseball I mean sitting outside and eating super unhealthy food--yum!)

After that we hiked back to Pier 39 to the Aquarium by the Bay, since we love going to aquariums about as much a zoos.  But I have to say, it was my least favorite place and wouldn't recomend it.  I don't know why, it just wasn't that awsome.  Maybe its because the aquarium wing of the California Academy of Science was so awesome or maybe becuase we were tired, but it was sort of meh.  So we headed back to our hotel for a rest before our evening activities.
