Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, California, USA

Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco is full of life.

Lovely smells of seafood all over the street, people from different parts of the world, different shops for various souvenirs, cute Sea Lions, large ships, wonderful white birds, cable cars (manually operated) and of course the seaside generates energetic vibes in abundance, making the Fisherman’s Wharf a happening and enchanting place to relax, to mix with the crowd and to enjoy.

Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco

We started for the Fisherman’s Wharf in an early chilly, but sunny winter morning. People were friendly and welcoming.

Shared some couple of good morning wishes while walking towards the Fisherman’s Wharf and on the way, took a cup of hot coffee in a cafe and watched how the morning slowly unfolded itself to a charming day.

A bright and beautiful morning!

Hello San Francisco!

Walking along the seaside in San Francisco

We started walking again along the seaside and saw various performances. I especially remember a boy performing on Michael Jackson’s songs. I must acknowledge his talent.

His movements along with the music poured in some extra energy and we went towards the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.

We saw a beautiful ship there. The place is famously known as Hyde St. Pier.

I was astonished to see the long and steep road on the opposite side of the park. I have never seen such a steep road!

Some of the visitors were hiring small cars to explore the city and it was lovely watching those cars.

There were roadside food stalls in plenty. We couldn’t resist the smell from those stalls and enjoyed a plate of tasty fried prawns.

If you visit Pier 39, don’t miss these fried prawns!

It was fun watching those enormous white and brown colored birds, walking on the streets and flying in their own rhythm.

One person was playing a lovely tune (Probably South American music) and we were silently enjoying the atmosphere.

  • Musical Stairs
  • The San Francisco 2 Story Carousel
  • Street Performers and Musicians

Sea Lions at Pier 39

After satisfying our taste buds we went to see the Sea Lions. We saw them playing and enjoying the sunshine.

I have not seen Sea Lions before. It was lovely to watch those playful, carefree and adorable Sea Lions. Loved watching them.

Cruising underneath the Golden Gate Bridge

Next, we took a cruise which was full of incredible vistas all around. Cruising underneath the Golden Gate bridge was yet another lovely experience. I would definitely write about it one day. After the one hour cruise, we were hungry and had a delicious seafood dish. Indeed a wonderful day with beautiful memories. Thank you San Francisco, Thank you Fisherman’s Wharf !!
