Our first stop on New Year's Eve was Haight Ashbury . . .
Sleepy Noe Valley has a different kind of vibe to the Haight-more push-chairs less crack addicts!
We climbed up to Bernal Heights for a 360 degree view of the city.
North Beach has a nice, laid-back feel too with of course the obligatory eccentrics.
Pier 39 is still home to the stinky, barking, bellowing sea-lion colony. The gaggle of tourists watching them were even rowdier!
View of the city across the East Bay with the Bay Bridge passing through Treasure Island and the Oakland port cranes on the left.
