I've taken many trips to San Francisco over the years for business, visiting friends, or just to get away from the LA heat. Recently though, I discovered something that for whatever reason has always been off my radar. I was talked into a jaunt down to Fisherman's Wharf to check out the barking sea lions at Pier 39. I have to say, it was a blast! There are hundred of these massive guys, flopping around, snuggling each other and barking non-stop. After that, I checked out The Musee Mecanique at Pier 45, and stayed there for hours playing these old antique arcade games. In fact, I had no idea how many cool museums there are in Fisherman's Wharf. There's also the USS Pampanito, (a WWII Submarine memorial), There's a three-masted, steel-hulled, ship called the Balclutha, and even the Boudin Sourdough Bread Museum is down there. I didn't have time to check out the Wax Museum but it looked pretty cool. Next time for sure! It's funny, I have to admit as I do more travelling I'll be a bit more inclined to explore some of the more "touristy" neighborhoods and lose some of the pre-concieved notions I tend to have going in.
