Muir Woods is a beautiful spot just north of San Fransisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge.

Patty and Kelly decided this would be their big tour of the cruise - and it turned out to be a fabulous decision.

The variety of mosses and the natural fertilizer of rotting trees became part of the relaxing beauty.

The two of them even got a passerby to photograph them between a pair of redwoods.

Following the trail through Muir Woods, the tour returned to the San Francisco docks.

Coit Tower at night

From there the two of them roamed the shorefront of San Francisco, finally taking pictures of Coit Tower from the ship, at night.
