“Before the guests arrive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

I woke up very early to take a taxi down to the wharf before it became the hustle and bustle of tourists. It was quiet, one lone boat on the bay passing by. I'm watching the deliveries arriving to the many shops on Pier 39. This young man was taking a banana break staring out over the water at Alcatraz island, perhaps being grateful for his life that moment. For me, I'm gratefully thanking God for my many blessings and for that precise moment being able to see the bay again.

“Beautiful day guaranteed, just dress warm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

A lot can be said about the SF Bay area, but basically most people will find something they like there. Walking on the beach, shopping for souvenirs, having Irish coffee or just people watching. Just dress warm, as the wind is cold any time of the year.

The visit to the bay was a great picture taking opportunity. It was also very relaxing. This is a must visit when you come to San Francisco.
