Roadblogging: San Francisco Mon

Monday was hotel switching day in the morning. The forecast for rain and wind appeared to be exaggerated. After settling in to our new digs, we ventured out to Pier 39 to allow the kind vendors to separate us from our wealth. That is when the rain and wind started up.

We had lunch and took refuge at the SF Bay Aquarium to escape the rain. While there were a couple of things better than the Oregon Coast aquarium, overall I think Oregon has a better aquarium (and a bit cheaper too). We boarded the electric car to head back downtown and settled in for the evening. We dined in Chinatown at the forgettable Cathay House. Here are some pix...

Enjoying ice cream and watching the wind and rain tousle the boats in the marina.



Minisnab and Ladybug in the aquarium viewing tunnel.



Anchovies(?) under the light



JAWS!!!!!!



A friendlly ray approaches in the petting pool. I told Minisnab not to get Irwined (was it too soon?).



4 crabby people. Ok, ok just kidding!!!

Ah, a little weather to spice up the adventure. It DOES look like fun.
I won't write any barbs about the Irwin joke.

Crikey, those blokes mean business. I miss the guy even though I joke about him.
