The Sunday Traveler~Sticking Close to Home

The Sunday Traveler lives across the bay from San Francisco, and it had been a little while since my partner and I had been over for a day trip. Bay Area traffic can be frightful, even on a Saturday, so we jumped on the Bay Ferry for an hour’s cruise across the water in comfort. Food, drinks, and bathrooms on board. Yay!

Beautiful things to see in passing through.

Richmond-San Rafael Bridge

Can’t think of a better way to get in to that city by the bay.

Our only intent for the trip was to stroll around the embarcadero and Ferry Building where the ferry docks (right at that structure shown in first photo that says Port of San Francisco); on Saturdays there is a Farmer’s Market there all round the building, front and back. Produce, flowers, and food stalls are abundant. The aroma when stepping off the ferry is magical.

We timed our arrival for close to lunchtime.

But first we took a walk down the embarcadero, then had lunch, then headed back to wait for the return ferry ride home.

Flowers wrapped for the ride home. Filled with gratitude to live in this incredible corner of the world.

    I love the photo of the little island. My wife and I were at the embarcadero about four years ago. We had a lot of fun watching the sea lions.

  4. These are brilliant photos. I like how they are laid out as well getting more colorful in the way you laid them out. I hope you enjoyed your trip, and have a good day.
