Sailboats? Yes. Powerboats? No. We love it here already.
It's a tight anchorage so we called upon our experiences sailing around Vancouver Island and stern-tied to one of the pilings in the harbor. This keeps us from swinging into the multitude of little boats tied up to mooring balls throughout Aquatic Park.
We have been thoroughly enjoying San Francisco. We are within walking distance of all sorts of great places. We ransacked a used book sale at Ft. Mason, carting away 25 pounds of books for under $50. We took in a not-so-great (but free!) concert at Golden Gate Park before we learned of another concert (also free!) happening at the same time.
We've met up with scads of friends living in the Bay Area and will continue to meet up with folk for the next few days. We've walked to farmer's markets, Chinatown, little Italy, downtown. We are quickly falling in love with San Francisco. It's fast moving up on the Where Do We Live When We Run Out of Money And Have To Be Grown-Ups Again list.
