Here is the record of my muni adventure trying to get to Ghirardelli Square, and some sketches from when I finally got there. The turtle is part of the mermaid fountain but Ronnie thinks it looks like Gamera rising out of the ocean to trample Tokyo.
I love old ships and sea stories so I headed down the hill to the Hyde Street pier. It was cold and windy where I caught this view of the stern of the Balclutha, a square-rigger from Glasgow. In the distance you can see both the Transamerica Tower and Ghirardelli Square.
Anyone who didn't pay the $5 to board the historic ships was missing out. I wish I could have drawn everything but I was having too much fun exploring around. Here are some spot observations from the Balclutha and a view of the Hercules, a steam tug.
Here is a view of the steam engine at the heart of Eureka, a ferry boat, and a father and daughter, below me, listening to the docent explaining how it all worked. I think the old guy was dozing off behind his sunglasses. The lower deck is something of an antique car museum. Here is a 1930 Graham Paige sedan and a sliver of a ford truck.
See you all at the next one!
