Pier 39

Pier 39, San Francisco

The last time I was here I was on a date, which was quite a while ago.





Music was coming from somewhere. A ship, maybe.






These guys are always here; still making their sea lion sounds and smells.




Another thing you'll find is this carousel.


Never been on it myself but it looks nice to look at.


Quite the invention. I would have bought one but the colors were too crazy to go with anything casual...



Remember when I said the last time I was here I was here for a date? These two were certainly on one.

It's been about two years? The memories are still fresh in my mind. They were nice but it just felt strange and walking around. I felt myself pulling away and wondering why I had come here in the first place the moment I got off the F. I've been here so many times; I'm no tourist. It's almost boring. Needless to say, I will not be back for awhile.

I figured this was noteworthy... for me.


Disclaimer: I am in no absolute way promoting junk food as the healthy way to go. Don't worry, parents!

Picked this up at one of the school stores because they ran out of the traditional hot cheeto fries. This really tasted like chili cheese. Wasn't too bad at all.


On the sweet side of things, this year I bought a box of Thin Mints from the girl scouts and boy, do I not regret buying it. Four dollars for a box but the mints were irresistible. Just like Dwyane Wade. Just kidding.

P.S. This was from March.
Yes, I realize this is a random entry.
And yes, I realized I skipped the whole month of April. Opps.


I finally walked across the Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

About time too.

A nice sunny day in the mid 80's to 90's called for a sure outing.




I should make this into a postcard.





Cross section of a cable.






Artsy-fartsy.


Look up.




I do not like cheesy poses but this is where the story begins. To make it short, this quite annoying man at the other end of the bridge was convinced that I was from out of town and urged, no wait, PUSHED me to do cheesy poses like these. I almost asked him if he had a real job...



I would like to add that if you stopped walking and just stood still on the bridge, you would feel the bridge underneath you vibrate. It honestly wasn't bad but for a person who isn't too keen on heights, it was definitely a shake-up.

If you walk on the bridge round trip, it will take about an hour.
Even more less if you don't stop to look and be at awe at the views. Not bad, huh?
