Where’s My Back Travel Theme: Oceans this week helped me to remember two beautiful cities by the bay. Happy World Oceans Day!
I’m in a San Francisco state of mind, where cable cars climb up to the stars in the city by the bay. It’s been awhile since I’ve glimpsed its crooked streets and hills. I remember it so clearly Fisherman’s Wharf, the neighborhoods with shops and restaurants, and the gardens. I close my eyes and see the Golden Gate Bridge spanning across the bay. The other city just down the coast from San Francisco, Half Moon Bay is a relaxed seaside town just a scenic coastal drive away.
I took two photographs on a boat cruise around San Francisco Bay with the waters from the Pacific Ocean. It was a hot day till the fog rolled in that morning to cool the temperature off, dropping it a few degrees. I was worried that I would have lots of pictures of fog and not much ocean. But the fog lifted by the time I reached Fisherman’s Wharf. The third photograph I took by Half Moon Bay.
Wow! you really capture the spirit of being there.
Thank you. 🙂 Probably because I’d like to be there this weekend. Sigh.
I love the colour in these photos, somehow reminiscent of a bygone era. Look at that cheeky Californian seal. 🙂
I love that comment. 🙂 They are water-soaked memories of my mind. I like to use a digital camera and still go back to a 35 mm occasionally for a different effect. I used a 35 mm for these photos. And, the seals will come up to the boats looking for treats.
such great images…it must be such a treat to get so close to animals that are wild and free
It is, I always feel lucky when I can get close to wild animals.
Me too. I know exactly how you feel. x

Beauiful colors in all!
Thank you so much. I look at your photo and the others of the photo challenge; there are so many shades and colors for the sand and oceans. 🙂
There sure are – almost like moods and personalities!
Your right about that. The ocean is fickle and changeable.
Great photo. 😉
