However, I made my way down to San Francisco the next day. I really needed some variety to the coastal landscape, as I would see a lot of it still on the legendary Highway 1 later on my journey. Five hours I drove through the giant Redwood forests and then through the wine hills north of San Francisco. But before I explored the city, I drove off before the Golden Gate Bridge and visited the house boats in Sausalito. The hint to go there I got once more from my parents. Here’s another gallery with some impressions of those house boats.
