1955 Mack fire truck San Francisco tour

We celebrated the boy's fourth birthday with a fire truck tour!

It was a gorgeous day and everyone-- kids and adults-- had a great time. The truck was retired from service in the 1980s. It used to carry 500 gallons of water. I sat in the very back and the ride was very bouncy.

The 90-minute tour included the Presidio, the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Baker, and the Marin Headlands. Riding it made me miss my Wrangler with the top off.

I learned that all San Francisco fire trucks have wooden ladders because of the low hanging electric wires for the trolleys. 

The tour guide also mentioned all the movies shot in San Francisco, including Dirty Harry. So I watched it for the first time. It's pretty entertaining.
