I have never noticed before, but there is a small gathering of surfers by Fort Mason and the Golden Gate Bridge. It seems like a less than ideal place to surf, but it does make for some good people watching.
Pica Pica Maize Kitchen is the only Venezuelan restaurant in San Francisco, this seems hard to believe, but according to the guide this is the case. They make these corn pancakes and then fill them up like you would a burrito. Cameron out ordered me and ended up with the more delectable lunch, but I was glad he was happy since he is always such a good sport about going wherever I want.
We just happened to stumble upon the parrots on Telegraph Hill. They are a brilliant shade of green and blend in perfectly with the surrounding foliage.
The lighthouse on Alcatraz was the first lighthouse on the West coast. I love acquiring interesting tid bits while on vacation, learning is one of the sole purposes of traveling for me.
