We entered Chinatown searching high and low for the famed Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory to seek our fortunes. Down a tiny little alley, Ross Alley we finally found it. Not exactly what we were looking for but I suppose your fortune is never quite in the place where you suppose it will be.
PS I will get back to showing photos of New Haven and Wooster Square eventually.

North of San Francisco is the wonderful city of Sausalito. It was overcast and misty but that didn't stop lots of tourists. This man's art was balancing rocks, pebbles and stones.
This fountain was in the center of town and just as happy as can be. I would be too if I raked in the money that it does from the tourists. Not that I'm complaining, just sayin'. It is a very romantic place however.

"Muir Woods National Monument is a remnant of ancient coast redwood forests that blanketed many northern California coastal valleys before the 1800's. Local businessman William Kent bought land in this valley in 1905 to protect one of the last stands of uncut redwoods. To ensure permanent protection, they donated 295 aces of redwoods to the federal government. At Kent's request, it was named for the conservationist John Muir." - from US Dept of the Interior National Park Service brochure.
