I arrived early for my whale-watching adventure and headed out to buy a take-away lunch. Trying to think of what foods would agree with me on rough seas, I found a little convenience store that sold soft drinks and freshly made sandwiches. It's about a 5-minute walk from the Whale Watch office.
Interesting to me on the main street is a large, old-fashioned hardware store and a number of gift shops. Nuts to the airline limits on how much you can carry home! Just my luck to spot the best cooking pot I'd seen in a long time and have to leave it in Steveston.
On a sunny afternoon, a big favorite is the really good ice cream on sale from a stand on Second Avenue. You won't have any trouble finding that. Several restaurants facing the docks feature fresh fish and shellfish as well as a variety of cocktails and family drinks.
Steveston appeals to me as a very fine place to spend a sunny summer day. The opportunities for photos are numerous. I love the boats! There are many places to sit and enjoy the views.
