Fisherman's Wharf - May 4, 2009
seals and Alcatraz
Once home to a fleet of over 400 boats, nowadays Fisherman's Wharf supplies only a tiny fraction of the fish served in San Francisco restaurants, but a few vintage Monterey Hull fishing boats and modern diesel boats still work from here, and if you get up early enough, you can watch fishermen bring in their catch.

Views of the city as seen from Fisherman's Wharf - Most of the boats berthed here belong to a third generation of fishing craft piloted by descendants of the fishermen who have made their livelihoods on the waters of San Francisco bay for many generations.

Forbes Island Restaurant is a curious little spot nestled between Piers 39 and 41 in San Francisco. With Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, it is the perfect setting for a small eatery. However at first glance with it’s mini lighthouse, palm trees and white sand decks you would never really know what it was. It is basically a restaurant on a floating island. There are small various banquet rooms to accommodate private parties and events, a below sea level dining room and a lounge and bar area above the water with some fantastic views of the bay, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate and our own resident sea lions.  

There is a small boat which provides service from Pier 39 to the island which takes only a few minutes. The below sea level dining area is a bit dark, damp and if you are in any way prone to motion sickness, this is not the restaurant for you. Attire required: Dressy - Price: Expensive

Boudin Bakery: Housed in a two-story building that replaced the old bakery in the same location, Boudin's sells the best San Francisco sourdough bread. There's a cafe upstairs and self-guided bakery tours. Below are baskets of bread that floated over our heads as we ate lunch.

Alcatraz Island

Alcatraz Island, commonly referred to as simply Alcatraz or locally as The Rock, is a small island located in the middle of San Francisco Bay in California, United States. It served as a lighthouse, then a military fortification, then a military prison followed by a federal prison until 1963. It became a national recreation area in 1972 and received land marking designations in 1976 and 1986.

Today, the island is an historic site operated by the National Park Service as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is open to tours. Visitors can reach the island by ferry ride from Pier 33, near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Alcatraz has been featured in many movies, TV shows, cartoons, books, comics, and games.
