Since the beginning of shelter in place on March 17, my travels have been limited to going to work twice a week and grocery shopping. I feel so cooped up but also feel comfortable that at least, I am trying to do everything to be safe.
The first place I have ventured to in 5 months has been the Embarcadero. The Embarcadero waterfront is one of my most favorite places in San Francisco. It is a historic part of San Francisco that begins near the ballpark which is Oracle Park, passing under the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge then continues north past the Ferry Building to Fisherman’s Wharf. It then extends to Pier 39 (that is popular among tourists) and ends at Pier 45.
I went for at walk on Embarcadero for the first time since March almost all the way to the ball park last July, and went back again after two weeks. My photos taken on my Samsung S10 begin from Pier 30 where the historic Red’s Java House, a rustic diner serving burgers and fries since 1930, is located. I walked by it and watched bikers order their food for takeout. Mr Sweetie and I have always talked about going here for a meal. We really have to do it one of these days. The Embarcadero was full of joggers and people soaking up the sun.
My photos end at the Ferry Building which is what my BFF and I refer to as our BFF HQ. Over the years, we have spent so many afternoons here for Happy Hour drinks at the wine bar, ate at almost every restaurant at this historic foodie haven, and sat by the waterfront while drinking coffee and talking about life. Currently, many of the stores and eateries at the Ferry Building are boarded up. I could hardly wait until everything opens again, most especially during the holidays when the Ferry Building is magical.
Thank you for taking a stroll with me through my photos.
