Walking along San Francisco's Embarcadero

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Today my husband and I spent three hours walking along the Embarcadero in San Francisco - all the way to Fisherman's Wharf.

There were beautiful views of the bay all around.

In this photo you can see the Golden Gate Bridge (which is, in fact, red).

This is a view of Alcatraz Island:

The photo below shows the new replacement Bay Bridge with the old bridge being torn down behind it.
This is the bridge that was damaged in the last earthquake. It goes over to Oakland and Berkeley.

These are the hills in Oakland and Berkeley.

Below are photos of seals basking in the sunlight during the day. Two of them were busy pushing each other off the barge into the water.

We also saw street performers along the way.

We also saw some Red Hats (women who travel together and wear red hats and purple tops).

This was an interesting plaque.

After our walk, we went for a late lunch (our second and final meal of the day). My husband wanted Chinese food, so we stopped at a restaurant near my son's house on the East Bay side. The food was very fresh and delicious.
Because I knew I would not be eating another meal, I ordered Sesame Chicken - and another plate of a variety of vegetables.

I ate almost all of the vegetables, and only about 1/4 of the chicken(4-6 small pieces). I was certain that would keep me within my limits for the day. Yumm!

After our 'linner' we went to an early movie: The Hundred Food Journey. It was entertaining and enjoyable -- and all about food.
Don't go to see it when you are hungry!!

Another great day - having fun and staying within limits.

(Sorry about those photos that are sideways. They were upright when I uploaded them.)
