San Francisco – Day 2
We were up bright and early this morning … below was the view while enjoying a coffee and bourbon on the porch
Then it was off to the farmer’s market in the ferry building … Below was an outstanding lox on sourdough with cream cheese, oranges and capers … yum.
Outside on the pier with some street musicians
Then worked our way down the piers … below is looking down one of the earlier piers with the Bay Bridge on the right.
Another pier further down …
We worked our way up to Pier 39 with, surprise, a Hard Rock Cafe …
We purchased our books for bus and trolley car rides around the city … At the same location was the Baltimore aquarium where i had a great time shooting. Below are a few of the jellyfish shots I took. I may print a few of these out for the house. I had a couple of really cute otter shots as well, but didn’t include them in this set. Below is a short gallery of fish pics.
This is the first tunnel-style aquarium that I’ve been in … pretty cool to see sharks and rays swimming over head.
We had a great lunch at Pier Market watching boats and enjoying fresh lobster, salmon, halibut and shrimp and stopped a little place that had outstanding coffee and raw cookie dough in cups. Transitioned from bourbon to rye (Tennessee Mules).
Walking back to the hotel we went through China Town. Not a fan … Hugely crowded streets … and big hills at that. Plus the heat was at full blaze (around 70 … both Shannon and I are tanned for sure). Shan took this snapshot from her phone while I was pulling my lungs up to the summit behind me.
We were glad to make it back to the hotel for a little break before heading out tonight … as of late afternoon, our dogs were barking as we pushed 20,000 steps (around 8 miles). Deciding on where to go tonight … probably leaving the camera behind.
