San Fran - Part 2 - Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square

We also hit the classic tourist places, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, and Ghirardelli Square. Fisherman's Wharf is an older part of town is lots of small restaurants, bars, and shops.

If you have seen these "toilets" before you know how funny they are. It looks a lot like a phone booth or something. They are public bathrooms and after each use they go through a 50-second self-cleaning cycle. I didn't use one, but as you can see Jacob experienced it. Too funny!

Pier 39 was also really neat! Lots of shopping and eating! The view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the pier.

That's Alcatraz behind us! (that post will come later)

We ate at Bubba Gumps....great food and awesome atmosphere (since it's southern based) :)

The sea lions at Pier 39 are so much fun to watch. I think we could have sat and watched them interact with each other all day! They are such funny animals!

So much fun to watch!

We also headed to Ghirardelli Square and got chocolate and ice cream! Yummy! I did not know that Ghirardelli was originally from San Fran!

More to come soon! Stay tuned!

Janko and I vacationed in San Fran in 2007. It's our favorite vacation spot to date. We loved so many things about it, but I think Janko's favorite was Pier 39. Next to pictures of us and the babies, he has a picture of the sea lions on his desk at school! :)
