Things & Places Seen In San Francisco - Part 5

Today, I shall take you all on a tour when I walked around the pier area along Fisherman's Wharf. The weather was lovely with blue sky and great sights around. Most of these pics were taken at Hyde Street Pier where one can see some historical ships anchored here (read more about them by clicking on its highlighted name). This pier is part of San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. Enjoy!

Great Blue Sky

There are people who actually swim in the pier area ...the water's really cold! You can see part of the Golden Gate Bridge in the background
