Fisherman's Wharf in January 2010

It seems right that I would spend my first few days in San Francisco and with my good friends. 'Course the thunderstorms that waited for this very week to pound the California coast prevented me from really going out to see old places.

BUT, we managed a short walk down to Fisherman's Wharf...a little less crowded for the weather.

One of the unique sights in San Francisco are their cable cars. What is that in the window?

Marina view. And the chapel is a constant reminder of the danger and a source of comfort for those that risk their lives in the open sea. The chapel contains more than 200 names of the men and women who have lost their lives at sea.

I was looking off into the distance when Valerie asked me if I saw the pelicans. I then searched the skies for this large bird, but didn't see them. She noticed my head was facing in the wrong direction and pointed to the edge of the sidewalk. There were two of these watching us and ready to take flight. I liked this one for the light yellow head. How did I miss these huge birds perched so close to me?...I blame it on jet lag.
