Funeral and San Francisco

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. My Grandmother died just before new year's so I went out to California for the funeral. Please keep her in your prayers.

The weather was rather dreary the whole time and we had just missed a HUGE storm that had gone through the bay area a couple of days before we got there. Still, we were able to get up to San Francisco to see some sights the day before I left.

San Francisco was covered most of the day with its stereotypical fog:

And we saw some of the usual touristy things like going across the Golden Gate Bridge:

Coit tower:

Cable cars:

and of course Alcatraz:

The main reason I wanted to go was to see the Shrine to Saint Francis of Assisi. However, along the way we also stumbled upon the church of Saints Peter and Paul:

and went inside:

Thankfully, we also made it to the Shrine of Saint Francis:

The we went down to the bay front and looked for the "money shot":
