A Few More Pics

This is the "scary bush guy" who hides between some branches and then scares unsupecting passersby. It seems wrong to laugh at the misfortune of others, but it was hard to resist laughing.

Here's one boat pic. I took a few more, which I think were really spectacular, but the batteries were failing on camera and they did not turn out. This harbor, and other harbors are fascinating places to me.

Here's a pic of the cable car. They are different from the street cars though both are electric. The cable cars run just a couple of simple routes up and over the big hilly part of the the town. It's fun to stand on the outside step and hang on to the rail and then get a great view of the awesome SF architecture. What a beautiful city this is! Chivalry is dead! I was surprised at how many men would sit while older women would have to stand and hold on! What the hell is wrong with people? There were even people who would take up two seats while others could not even get on the cable car or street car. Sad, sad, sad. Make that selfish.

Coming soon, my homeless photo spectacular...

Still more pics...

A harbor view, with a sea lion in the water.

One of the streetcars running off electricity. There is a large collection of streetcars, I guess, collected from all over the world that run here, like a museum that you can ride! And yes, one streetcar is named "Desire", though I don't know which one.

Yesterday the streetcar I was on was totally packed like sardines. The driver was a riot! He was like a crabby New York City cab driver with attitude. He'd insult passengers for comic relief. It was a very fun ride.

A view of the harbor. After my ride I had some kick ass clam chowder with sourdough bread! Did you know that sourdough bread in SF tastes different from sourdough in other locations??? That's because it's a particular bacteria that only lives in this area. Sourdough baker's guard their sourdough starters like thier life depends on it.

This is one of many street performers by Fisherman's Wharf. One guy would hide between some branches by the sidewalk and would scare people walking by. There were break dancers, musicians and more.

Another harbor view.

Two different views of Alcatraz taken from a boat...

Two views of Golden Gate bridge which can sway horizontally as much as 27 feet in high winds!!! Yikes!

Wish this has turned out a bit better...a cute dog riding next to her owner who is driving this carriage. Saw this dog two days in a row. It seems like he just love his job!
