Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, Downtown San Francisco

If it ever stops raining I am looking forward to exploring San Francisco.  Don’t give me that look, I don’t mind a little rain, but it is pouring buckets and add to that thunder and lightening.  Edgar doesn’t even want to take a walk.

My sister has lived here for years and I have enjoyed visiting.  This is the first time I will have my own car and not be pushed for time.  I hope to see all the tourist attractions plus add in a few out of the way places and some hikes in the hills and along the coast.

Meanwhile in the rain…….

Living on a boat is an interesting experience.  There is no shower, but there are really nice accommodations on shore.  It takes planning and practice to move myself, all my stuff and Edgar on and off the boat.  Each time Edgar needs his life vest so I can lift him, kind of worried about dropping him in the bay!

There is a small galley and when it stops raining,  nice, white cushions for outside seating.  Spotted a rail BBQ that will get some use in the weeks to come.

When the comorants, harbor seals, Forster’s terns and other fowl join in the shad hunt you can hear and see all the different fishing techniques.  There were about 12 harbor seals and too many birds to count fishing right in front of the boat.  It is a display worth standing in the rain to watch.

    Cathy, You’ve been on the road about 11 days and I’ve been traveling vicariously with you and Edgar from my office at Clark College. I can’t believe the wonderful experience you are having thus far, except for the pesky rains. I guess California is in for more rain this weekend so be careful. The weatherman was saying parts of California could see mudslides and other weather-related occurrences. Keep on truckin’ and keep us entertained with yours and Edgar’s adventures across this great land. Shigemi

    Hey… I see Blue sky in that picture…quit your whining:-)
    Missed you at wake up this morning…so strange to not see your smile and hear your cheerful laugh.


  3. Hi Shigemi, glad you are enjoying the blog. Jean, I took that picture when I was here last year!!


  4. I am sorry about the rain, but the thunder sounds cool.Love that. I hope it lets up enough to allow you to go out and explore. I’m sure you are taking pictures of the seals and birds, right?
