The Surprise Just Around The Cape...

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, look to tomorrow,
 rest this afternoon."

~Charles M. Schulz
Charlie Brown's Little Book Of Wisdom

October was such a busy month, we did a lot of things on vacation, we went a lot of places, but we also kept to our traditions for the most part, one example being taking a ride on the amphibious vehicle tour, Ride The Ducks. Every year we catch a waiting duck, and tour North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square, the Financial District, South of Market and AT&T Park, then hold on tight as we slide off a ramp into the gorgeous San Francisco Bay! Once in the water we tour past military ships at dock, and float over to McCovey Cove, just out in the water, to the right of the ballpark!

As you might imagine while on the tour we see some marine and bird life, but on this voyage, we were treated to a rare up close and personal treat of a sea lion sunning himself on the ship Cape Horn, and laughing at us as we floated past him! What a beautiful noise they make! I love them, they are another thing about San Francisco that keeps me head over heels in love with the place! 

He was a great surprise!
What a great place to nap! And what a great way to see a sea lion up close! The Ride The Ducks tour is a lot of fun. Take the tour if you ever visit San Francisco! I am a Bay Area native, and I always learn something new from the tour! It's awesome!
