AUGUST 12, 2013 (Monday)
Got up and out early for us. We weren’t sure what we were going to do today, either the Undersea Garden or go to Fisherman’s Wharf. We opted for the Wharf. It was kinda grey out but you could tell it was going to get nice. Also, it was warm and we wanted to walk outside.
What fun the Wharf is. I’ve decided I want to live on the little brown houseboat with the copper roof. Love it. Loved all of the 33 little homes there. It’s a busy working wharf with Barb’s Fish and Chips, a Mexican place, ice cream, whale charter, kayaks, pirate boat, and many other interesting things to see. Michael and I had fun just looking at all the quaint little homes on the water.
After that we just started walking. We wanted to go check out the Wharf Park. We walked through it and then down the street in front of the Coast Guard and a private residence area. There were waterfalls, beautiful flowers and lush greenery. There was a huge colorful sculpture in front of one of the buildings. Fun.
We walked down the street and I was starting to get hungry and the Fish Market, Finest at Sea, just happened to be right there so we stopped and ordered at a little place like you’d see at a fair. It was cooked right to order and it was so fresh and wonderful. Michael and I agreed we thought it was better than Red Fish Blue Fish. Yummy. We split a two piece halibut order, with chips, and two drinks. The bill was under $20.00. The pieces were huge and so delicious. We walked over to the park, sat in some comfortable chairs, and ate our awesome lunch. We were about ¾ of the way through the meal and Michael asked if I took pictures, sorry, oink. It looked and smelled so good and was so good, the camera never stood a chance. You just have to imagine the best fish and chips you have every had, perfectly cooked, and that will come close to what we had today.
While we were eating lunch we were able to sit and enjoy the harbor. We saw some of the most beautiful yachts coming into the harbor. One of the yachts we saw looked like a sleek stainless steel one. Absolutely stunning. A piece of art. I hope my pictures turned out.
After lunch we went to the Clipper ferry terminal to check it out, then down to the harbor to try to get a closer picture of the beautiful yacht. We also got to explore that section of the harbor and got to listen to two young men (around 15 or 16) playing horns. They’re called “Boisterous.” They were good, not great, but you could tell they were on their way to being really good. I liked they were so young and doing so well.
We left there and washed and vacuumed our car. It desperately needed it. Then we headed to the grocery store to get a few things. Probably just a small bowl of ice cream for dinner.
That was our day. Hope yours was wonderful!
