Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay

Immediately after getting to Sausalito, we went straight to the visitor center to find out about the ferry. The sweetest older lady was working there and she helped us out a lot.
Well it was par for the course.... the ferry would be leaving in about 25 minutes and it was about a 5 minute walk away, just enough time for us to take ole' Ottis' advice and just enjoy "sittin' on the dock of the bay wastin' time."
We were so excited. It was a bit of a bummer that we couldn't hang around in such a charming little area, but our Alcatraz tour was booked for 6:15 and we still needed to eat after we got back to San Francisco. We figured at that moment, that we would come back to Sausalito the next day to do some shopping and have dinner at a little cafe'. It would have been fun to tour around a city where the average home sells for over $500 / square foot.
The town was beautiful! Set right there on the north side of the bay with beautiful views of the bay. The marina was charming and the weather was perfect (of course).
We loaded up on the ferry and we were San Fran bound in no time.

So this was "sittin' on the ferry, wastin' time" 'cause I didn't get any pictures from the dock.

The ferry ride back to San Francisco was beautiful just before sunset.
