Pier 39

Pier 39

is a shopping paradise for tourists in San Francisco.

The stores are rather quirky and perfect for finding that unique gift.

I purchased several items from the Cable Car shop,

and several more things from the “I love San Francisco” store.

I also bought some Ghirardelli chocolate from “Chocolate Heaven”, supposedly San Francisco’s best chocolate ever.  Clearly they’ve never tasted Australian chocolate though.  I gave away my second piece of Ghirardelli and that speaks volumes for a chocolate lover.  🙂

We visited the pier several times as it served as a great place to grab some food when we were peckish.

Lauren, Erin, Tara and Briana – We posted your postcards from Pier 39.  The boys spent all day looking for a mail box.  The boxes would be easier to find if they were red!

Aside from the shopping, and eating, the pier is well known for its double decker carousel.  But we didn’t ride it.

We did however check out the seal lions that also attract the tourists to Pier 39.

They lolled about sunbathing on the docks,

and enjoying the attention

Given the time I would have spent a lot more time shopping at Pier 39.  But with a ratio of 5 males to 2 females, us gals weren’t permitted much time to shop.

Advice to future Pier 39 visitors…leave the men at home on this trip.  🙂
