On our second day in San Francisco we went up into the Mission District to visit the street art in Clarion Alley and then came back to Fisherman’s Wharf for lunch
Our cruise through the Panama Canal started in Fort Lauderdale and would take us to Aruba, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico and finally San Francisco and then onto Monterey.
Morning in Marina
The traffic noise from Lombard quietened down after midnight. The air conditioning was kept busy cooling the room down and at 4 am I switched it off for a quiet life.
At 8 am I set off for the Starbucks around the corners on Chestnut. On Lombard the first restaurant that I passed already had a small queue outside waiting for breakfast tables. Where Pierce crossed Chestnut there was a 4 way stop. Cars not only stopped for each other but also for pedestrians! I remembered to look as well as listen for cars as there were a lot of Tesla cars around in Marina.
Starbucks was very busy and $6 later I had a regular coffee and a tea to go. After we had had our first caffeine of the day we decided to go to the bagel restaurant on Chestnut for breakfast. We had eaten there before on earlier visits and knew that a bagel with their fillings made a great breakfast
I went for one of the more filling combos called a Farmhouse. This toasted bagel had a fried egg, bacon and schmear (or to us Philadelphia Cream Cheese). Everything you could possibly want for a filling breakfast!
Further up the street outside a bank this black heart was there for passers-by to chalk on.
The trees were in bloom too.
Our room had already been serviced.
