California Dreaming Just Became Reality: Let’s All Go To San Francisco



Looking Uptown from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Iconic San Francisco Hills & Roads

Fisherman’s Wharf is a hive of activity; a lot of it tourist.  Street shows include musicians, clowns & artists. Every now & then you can capture a glimpse of daily life, ‘sans’ tourist. A van makes deliveries to a local store, as we gaze up towards the iconic SF roads, subject of so many chase scenes in films.



Amazing Artist on Fisherman’s Wharf (see more of his work on Instagram under @pacospray)

A local spray artist creates masterpieces using spray cans, a few tins & templates & huge amount of skill. Smells nice too 😊. View some of his amazing creations on Instagram (@pacospray).



San Francisco Cops Gather Behind Fisherman’s Wharf

Tucked away just beyond the piers, I came across this gathering of San Francisco cops: patrol; mounted & motorcycle. It’s amazing the conversations that an English accent can spark.  You can learn so much more about the people & place ☺




Alcatraz sits quietly in the bay.  Home to so many past figures of America’s underworld, now an attraction for sightseers,  the island still appears dark & foreboding.



Link to Oakland

A lot of the piers along the Bay are still functional to the extensive fishing industry that supports restaurants, cafes & hotels in the city. Some, like this one serve as entry & exit points for visitors & commuters alike.



Three Market & Powell Cable Cars Await Space in the Fisherman’s Wharf Car Terminus

No visit would be complete without seeing the historic Cable Cars. Here, a group of cars incoming to the Fisherman’s Wharf terminus await their turn. The gradient of the street can clearly be seen.

San Francisco is a big city with a big history & so much to see.

Take care  until next time …

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
