Dropping By At Pier 39 in San Francisco

FEW DAYS BEFORE FLYING...

My son came to fetch both of us back to his home in San Jose, in less than a week, we had to fly back to our own country.  It was a three months trip for me and a month of traveling for my friend.  She came with one big suitcase and went back with an extra big one borrowed from my sister!  LOL... And both suitcases were full to the brim and she has to leave some of her "unused" stuff behind, such as her big pair of boots!

Two days before we left, my son took us to Pier 39 in San Francisco.  I had not been here before, heard that this place is one of the tourist spots in SF, so we must make a visit here before leaving.  We left early in the morning and we reached Pier 39 in less than an hour.

From the parking lot, we had to pass this overhead bridge to the pier...
Blue skies but cold weather....
We took turns carrying our little man cos he doesn't like stroller....
Everywhere it is Pier 39... 
Let's go and have fun!
Our little man was not keen....
Tourist-ing around the area....
Lovers' Locks....
We made this instead....
Behind us is the Alcatraz Island...
An ultimate maximum security prison during the hey-days..
Now it stands as a tourist spot...
To go on a ferry round the island cost $99... 
Hence the picture to save cost... 
LOL.... 
One must not leave Pier 39 without stopping by here...
Famous for its sourdough bread...
Clam Chowder.... and it was really good!
Forgot what the filling is in this burger.... 
Fried Calamari
And mini-sized fish n chips....

  4. What a fun place!! Great scenery, rides, and food! With all this fun, I would sure not pay to go visit an old creepy prison!

  5. Pier 39 still looks the same and probably very windy too.

    The experience to visit Alcatraz Island would be worth the price as it's an eye opener for anyone.
