Sometimes you just have to go where the tourists go, right?
My first time to San Francisco, yes I had to walk down to the wharf and check this place out. I love old stuff, I love vintage stuff. This place has that.
Oh, and it also has insanely crazy people taking a nice chilly swim in 50 degree water. And sea lions. Also swimming, but they are accustomed to such temperatures.
Me, not so much. Standing in my long dress, with tights on underneath, sweater, scarf and moccasin boots... and chilly. In July. I'll stay on land, thanks.
I loved walking around this area. Go try the clam chowder. You just gotta do the tourist thing sometimes.
