Of sea lions and seagulls... my diary of Fisherman's Wharf (I)

Raindrops falling on my head... that's the weather during my visit to San Francisco. Luckily the rain stopped after we left the Golden Gate Bridge. I was very excited as Fisherman's Wharf is listed as one of the must-go in San Fran!~



The sculpture of the sea lions at Pier 39.



Sisters-alike. In blue and pink.



I've never imagine how beautiful the flowers could be in spring. I felt so sweetly scented...just like a bouquet of flower.



Home of seagulls... they're everywhere! Very relaxing..



And then I heard the sea lions sang...



Yep, at Pier 39. The world-renowned sea lions.



They are knowned as the "Sea Lebrities".




The sea lions camped out in PIER 39's West Marina have been endearingly coined, "Sea Lebrities." The boisterous barking pinnipeds started arriving in droves, taking over the docks in January 1990 shortly after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. At first they numbered from 10-50, but due to a plentiful herring supply, available dock space and the marina’s protected environment, the population grew to more than 300 within a few months. Each winter, the population can increase up to 900 sea lions, most of which are male. During the summer months, the sea lions migrate south to the Channel Islands for breeding season, but in recent years a small group stays year-round at PIER 39's K-Dock. Staff from The Marine Mammal Center’s Kiosk, located next to the sea lions, are happy to inform visitors about these fun, flippered animals. Each weekend, weather permitting, the Center provides volunteer docents at K-Dock who explain sea lion behaviors and answer visitors’ questions. More information and interactive exhibits are available on Level 2 of PIER 39 at The Marine Mammal Center’s Interpretive Center and Gift Store. For more information about California sea lions and The Marine Mammal Center.

I will get a private yacht one day, and park it right beside the beach opposite my house.



Overlooking the marina.



At first we wanted to go to Alcatraz but too bad the tickets were sold out!! So I could only see it from afar..



San Francisco bay view.



Another seagull. I love seagull. =)



They can really be such cuties. Look at them!

And this is surely one of my favorite pics of the day - thank you Jayant for the company!
