Old Fisherman's Wharf

I used to love to go to Fisherman's Wharf when I was a child. I liked to watch the salt water taffy being made in the windows. I liked to listen to the sea lions bark out their conversations on the rocks. I liked to look at the boats bobbing up and down on the ocean. This is a fairly peaceful place that suits me a hundred times more than the Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. There are many restaurants (some with excellent clam chowder) and stores in which to browse. There are often art festivals going on nearby. Upon my visit there was one in progress that displayed all kinds of eclectic local wares. I bought this completely cool windchime made from an old metal wine goblet and clinking silverware! It is not uncommon to see men and women with easels painting some of the various flora and fauna along the sidewalk, too. If you are in the mood for a walk, it is easy to make your way from Fisherman's Wharf to Cannery Row by foot as you gaze across the waters of one of the world's largest marine sanctuaries.
