After seven trips in two and a half years, I can say that I’m finally both starting to get tired of, and enjoying “like a local” San Francisco’s Waterfront area. Tired because honestly, there is a lot of seafood there and I’m not a fan.
“Like a local,” because I know where all my favorite stores, photo spots, and restaurants are now. And I have visited each enough times to know they’re my favorite locations.
Such as the perfect view of Alcatraz Island
Or the best view of the ships at the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. This picture shows the square-rigger (three masted ship on the left) Balclutha, the paddle wheel tug Eppleton Hall, and some swimmers in the water. While the Steam Ferry Eureka sits in the background.
With just a hint of the Golden Gate Bridge in the extreme background.
And an even more unique view of the old Cruise Ship with the new (on the left.) The San Francisco Belle heads out into the Bay for a sunset dinner cruise, while the Norwegian Princess sits at dock waiting for it’s tired passengers to rejoin.
