Day 291 Fisherman's Wharf

After Alcatraz, we headed to Fisherman's Wharf. What's a visit to San Francisco without seeing Fisherman's Wharf?

And I could have looked at these noisy fellows all day long! They just crack me up!

My family was very much "on the move", so I didn't get a good chance to get the perfect positioning of a cable car, but I liked this one well enough.

Scott was trying to track down an apartment to move into, and was becoming quite familiar with his new Blackberry as we walked along.



We ate at the famous Aliotos . . . overpriced, cranky waiters, not particularly good food . . . . but a great view of the Bay, and we got to sit down!

Scott's guidebook next sent us off to Jack's, some kind of microbrewery with lots of beer, or something like that. I was holding out for the next stop. . . .

Wow...look at that sky. Its always the really cool places that don't turn out to be that good on the food side. There are so many places like that here in Maine. Did he find an apartment. I hope he did...San Fran is an expensive place!

I ADORE sea lions. I could stay there all day. And look at your son--typical young man--he looks so happy to be getting a beer. :-)

I LOVE Fisherman's Wharf. I've never eaten at Alioto's, but have always wanted to when I've been in San Francisco. At least now I know the waiters are cranky. Now I don't feel so bad that I haven't been there! :)
