On Day 4, I took “Powel – Mason” Cable car to head to the Colt Tower and Levi’s Square.
The cable car is a lot of manual Labor.
At a switch, one guy pull the lever while cable car is changing the track.
The driver (?) told me a lot about how cable car operates, and suggested me to stop by at the Cable Car Museum.
Once I get to near Mason, i stopped by at a Small Cafe to grab some coffee and breakfast.
they had this cool double fan ceiling fan…
The Colt Tower from a distance, the first destination…
And more Hill…
Cool Elementary School at the bottom of colt tower
from the top of the hill
I was there too early and the tower itself was not open yet…
and then start heading down the stairs toward Levi’s Square.
very beautiful 400 steps under a tree tonnel.
and then finally at the bottom of stairs, there is Levi’s head quoter.
On my way back to Union Square, I hopped back on to a cable car, and went to the Cable Car Museum. it is a small building, and actual work shop / power house for the San Francisco Cable Cars.
it is a very entertaining, and fun place. it’s free, and can learn a lot about the history of cable cars, and it’s operation, and mechanics. worth while stop if you go to San Francisco.
I went back to Union Square for lunch with my wife, and went to the Blue Bottle Coffee, and Restaurant truck called Slider Shack.
My wife went back to her sessions, and then once she was done, we head to the Fisherman’s Wharf for Ghirardelli Chocolate shop. (and original factory location)
Demonstration of chocolate making process (in the old way!)
Then went to Crab House at Pier 39. (Highly Recommended!)
