June 27 - San Francisco

We rode the cable car to Market Street and walked around. They were setting up for Pride Weekend…how lucky could we be. LOL

San Francisco Cable Car
We caught the cable car to Fishermen's Wharf…it's hard to remember what it looked like 18 years ago when we were here. It was fun to see all the fresh seafood for sale. We rented bikes and rode along the waterfront. They'll let you take the bikes across the Golden Gate Bridge and ride the ferry back…but it was too windy and cold for me to do that. We enjoyed riding around a little. This area isn't as bike friendly as the other places we've been this week, so we didn’t keep them very long. It was just too crowded.

We wondered through Ghirardelli Square, the Cannery and a little art show in the park. The weather was great and we enjoyed sitting in the park watching people and the boats. We actually saw people swimming in the bay…burr.
We spent the afternoon on Pier 39 watching people, sea lions and boats. We had beer and clam chowder at Sea Lion Café and listened to the seals. It was fun to watch them from our table. It was a nice lazy day just soaking in the sites.

We went back to Chinatown for dinner. It was hard to decide where to eat, so we looked for advice on the internet and ended up at Hunan Homes. It was a good choice. Our waiter was very friendly and the food was good.

After dinner we went back to the room, put on some warmer clothes and rode the cable car back to the wharf. We hopped off at Lombard Street, took pictures and walked down and back up. Very pretty. After a few photos we hopped back on the cable car. We wondered around the wharf as the sun was setting and enjoyed the sights. We had fun watching the street performers…one man calls himself The Bushman. He hides behind branches and then pops out when someone comes by…funny to watch, but glad he didn’t get us.
