After our awesome ride on the bay in the rocket boat, we started walking through Fisherman’s Wharf. I didn’t take a lot of pictures. I feel like we have done that. If you want, go back and look at the old posts. You can learn all about the Wharf and boost my stats.
Notice that there are wisps of fog blowing past behind Alcatraz.
Just a short while later, and a little further along, the fog has turned into a long tongue, sticking into the bay from Under the Golden Gate Bridge.
Behind the masts of that old sailing ship, Alcatraz is now almost invisible, except for the rocks at its base.
And when I turned to my left, I was surprised to see… uh… nothing but fog… where the Golden Gate Bridge is supposed to be. I mean, it is in there, but we can’t see it at all. This photo, for those of you who care, was taken from in front of this building…
Where they make San Francisco’s most famous chocolate.
We took an Uber car back to our car… we did a lot of walking over the last couple of weeks. I like this photo, because, from this angle, the Transamerica building looks bigger than the new Salesforce building that is going up.
Once we got our car, we drove back past the Fisherman’s Wharf area, along the coast, until we were very close to the Golden Gate Bridge itself. That big square thing looming out of the fog is Fort Point, built during the American Civil War. It is built underneath a big arch that supports this end of the bridge. You can see just a hint of the arch fading up into the fog above the fort. I mean, technically, the fort was built way before the bridge, and they built the arch over it, but you know what I mean.
Eva and William… our godson, met us. They live very close by. Mollie and Dashawn are putting our cool new kite together.
Looking back towards the city and Fisherman’s Wharf, you can see that the fog has closed in behind us.
Our new kite is cool. It does tricks.
And then, moments later, looking from the Presidio, where we were flying the kite, you can see that the fog lifted for a moment, giving us a peek at some of the city.
No, that isn’t the same photo of pelicans that I posted before… I mean, they are the same pelicans, but I took two pictures of them.
And the same goes for the ghostly sail boats.
A lone seagull ponders the fog.
Now get ready for it, because in the next post, we are going to drive into the thick fog, and onto and over the Golden Gate Bridge, and you are going to see come cool photos of fog.
