I would recommend renting a bicycle at Fishermans Wharf. Take your time crossing the Bridge Stop at Sausalito - Starbucks - Take in the beautiful surrounds. Watch the Fishing Boats. Take the Cycle track and head for the Ferry at Tiburon. Come back to SF on the Ferry and watch as the City rises from the fog. Great day !

Re: March 19, 2018: Winter at Caraquet Wharf, New Brunswick

DrFumblefinger ·
Brrrrr. I can feel that North Atlantic wind crossing over all that ice. It's a little hard to tell from the photos but I assume the boats are dry-docked fro the winter? Ice can be a very destructive force when it thaws.

A lot of boats are dry-docked for the winter, but I did see others that were not. The Bay looks more like a field. That's an island out there!

That's a great destination, Rob, and I'm so glad you got to experience it and share it with us! Kind people and Dixie Lee chicken -- seems New Brunswick is a-calling! I've traveled extensively thoughout North America but have never made it to the Maritime provinces. Need to rectify that sometime soon.

Thank you, Vivie, you're very kind and I will be there someday. Not sure when, yet, but it is definitely a "must seen" for me. Nothing like a local expert to bring a place to life, so I'll let you know when that happens.

The Acadian Village really is a special place and so is the whole area. I'll definitely return and take Vivie up on her Dixie Lee dinner offer! For those of you that missed my clip about Dixie Lee, here's the famous chicken! Sides are shown in the comment section. Besides the sights , the area also has a great restaurant, Chez Raymond, with an amazing Poutine ! https://www.travelgumbo.com/cli...g-20150712-231632800

Thanks for posting this interesting story, Rob. I'd love to go. Now I need to look it up on a map and start planning. As you said, Acadians spread their history all the way down to Louisiana. Cajuns make New Orleans and Louisiana what it is today.

Thank you History Digger! I'm sure that you will enjoy your visit when you go. I'd really recommend staying a night at that hotel in the village if you can. I didn't but it seems like it would be a neat experience.

This is a great piece. The last time I visited New Brunswick was 41 years ago. I am not sure if we stopped here or at other historical sights, but we did enjoy our time there.

Go to Fishermans Wharf. Rent a Bicycle. Ride across the Golden Gate Bridge. Stop at all viewing spots. On to Sausalito. Stop for Coffee and a cake. Sit on the sea wall and watch the Fishing Boats cleaning their nets. The Seagulls will steal your piece of cake when you're not looking . Back on the Bicycles and on to Tiburon using the Cycle Tracks. Find the Ferry Terminal then back home to base. Wonderful days excersise !

Re: Gallarus Oratory, Dingle Peninsula, Ireland

rbciao ·
Three more comments concerning Dingle: 1. Leaving the wharf/tourist area in Dingle and walking uphill into the central part of the town was very interesting in that we could interact with the locals and leave the hustle & bustle of the lower part of town. We stopped at a neat cafe for coffee called the Frog St. Cafe and we were the only non-locals in the place. 2. Between Dingle town and Slea Head is the Stone House Restaurant, which overlooks the bay and an ancient fort. The restaurant...

Re: Old Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey, California. Where Gumbo Was, #74

GarryRF ·
Looks a bit like the San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf. Lots of tourist attractions to help part you from your savings. But the Sea Lions waving their fins to catch some sunlight make it all worthwhile. Yes - I know - the kids love it - but watching who gets pushed off the floating boards to make room for the big fella is absolute poetry. Then he in turn pushes another Sea Lion off. Fine explanation of the "pecking order" Looks like a great location to spend the day - and pedestrian friendly...

It's a much smaller Fisherman's Wharf than San Franciscos, and one I like a lot better. Also, crowds are much lighter and the atmosphere a little more relaxed.
