  Angel Island Hiking
Angel island is a nice little island in San Francisco Bay, located one mile south of the Tiburon Peninsula. Even though small, it actually has a lot of history. We have been thinking of visiting it for a while. However, because of the ferry schedule, one has to get up early to catch the 10:30 a.m. ferry and take the 3:50 p.m. back.

So we finally were able to reach the ferry around 10 a.m. on Saturday. Wile waiting for the ferry, we went to visit the sea lions. They were mostly sleeping that day, although sometimes you can see them playing "king of the hill" here and it is very entertaining.








Here is me holding the ticket, waiting in the line.













The Mount Livermore is not high at all, making the hiking trail a very easy one. The trail circles the island so you can see the other cities around it.

Here is one nice view of the half-island Tiburon.









It took us an hour to get to the top, where we found a nice spot to have our lunch.













A shot of Ayala Cove on our way back there to wait for the ferry back to the city.
