San Francisco So Far

I have been tethered to my computer and cell phone for the past few days here at the conference however, we did manage to take a quick ride on a cable car down to Fisherman's Wharf.  Of course, I was the only tourist there with a big-ass camera lens taking photos of the seagulls that were begging for french fries!  Oh well, that's what makes me a nerd.

Here is a photo of Western Gull posing on a piling.  This is a big bird.

My coworker also spotted this Anna's Hummingbird right outside of the famous Ghiradelli Chocolate store.  The second photo really shows how brilliant red the throat and face feathers get when just a little bit of sun shines on it.

We are trying to get a tour of Alcatraz for tomorrow but tickets are sold out.  Who would have thought that I would ever have trouble getting INTO a prison?  Go figure.
