The Fisherman’s Wharf has a reputation as a place where San Franciscans love to hate.  Variously billed as irredeemably touristy, crass, commercialized, it nonetheless has proved an enduring tourist magnet because of the diversity of its attractions, and, frankly, because it is simply a beautiful part of town.

Nice photos and nice prose too. Hmmm… your natural writing style (if this is what it is) is pretty realistic with a twinge of poetism. Great way to exercise the right brain isn’t it?

Hey Walter, thanks for dropping in! Well, generally I am begining to find blogging rather therapeutic! 🙂 My next update would be on the interesting sea creatures that inhabit Pier 39 of the Fisherman’s Wharf.

Ahhhh… and aha! You have been trapped and infected by the blogging bug too… I find that I am now so addicted that I have a constant urge to check on my blog and emails too. I love to travel too though work is sooo damn busy that I find it difficult too at times. But I hope that thigns will change in the months ahead. 🙂

A change for a more balanced lifestyle…or as the parlance here goes…better work-life balance. Many will say amen to that! 🙂
