Saturday: (10/08) Lou made chicken fried steak and eggs with home fried potatoes for breakfast. After that I walked to the train station and headed up to San Francisco. It’s Fleet Week so there were lots of folks there. I did a little walk-about.

Walking along Market Street I happened along these street musicians using one of the street pianos. The guy on the white sheet is painting some music, larger format, that I assume the group played later?

The lines for the US ships were way too long for me but I did tour a Canadian ship. The crew was very helpful answering all my questions. I also visited the Farmers market at the Ferry Building. I found a nice piece of Bourbon Pecan Pie at one of the vendors for lunch. I then hiked up the hill to Coit Tower and watched the Blue angels and other planes in an air show.

I met one of my fellow hikers there, Anda. She is an avid photographer and probably got some good shots of the Angels.  I got some typical shots.

From there I headed down to North Beach to Golden Boy pizza for dinner. A walk through China Town brought me by a Chinese bakery for desert.  I then caught the train home.
