USA Wanderings: An Afternoon in San Francisco
When I was staying with my sister in law she took me into the city of San Francisco. The plan was to see a play, Beach Blanket Babylon. We decided to go in early and explore around the piers on the side of the bay, see the play then maybe dinner afterwards.
It is quite amusing that the play we were going to see also have a Boulevard named after it.
From the carpark we walked down the street and headed to the bayside area.
As we were walking there we could see the fog rolling in. So incredible to see fog rolling in in the middle of the afternoon. The sun was still shining, it wasn’t cold, but there was this fog. I’ve never seen anything like it before.
The area around pier 41, Fisherman’s Wharf and another Aquatic area, can’t remember the name of it now. It had lots of things happening and going on. It was good fun to walk around and just watch the people.
I had my first taste of Clam Chowder there. It was so good.
The streets and how steep they were was something I had to take photos of. It certainly didn’t make you want to walk around much.
A photo of Alcatraz. In the gallery at the end you will see another photo of it, but you can’t see it much because it is covered in fog. It lifted a little and you can see it a bit better.
You can see some great architecture as you wander and I especially liked this one of the house with its own trolley car. It was the only one I really wanted to go in.
Look at how steep they are, the road looks like it finishes, but it doesn’t.
It was a great day, and I really enjoyed just walking around and seeing things. We had to get back so we could see the matinee performance of the play. More on that tomorrow.
Here is a gallery of the above images and some more from that afternoon. I hope your weekend is looking great and you are looking forward to getting out and taking some photos.
