Located at the edge of Fisherman’s Wharf is Pier 39, a shopping district and a tourist attraction.
Pier 39 is known for the Californian sea lions hauled out on the docks of the marina. Not having a very long lens on my Panasonic Lumix LX3, I can only get this far, and that’s with some cropping.
There’s a shopping area within Pier 39, which offers shopping and restaurants as well as views of the city.
There’s also a merry-go-round for the kids.
Many boats are docked at the marina at Pier 39.
At the end of the pier, you can see the island of Alcatraz, once used as a prison but is now a national recreation area of San Francisco. Again, due to the limits of my zoom range, this is all I have.
