Wo ist Fisherman's Wharf?



Since we were not being hosted on a first-class Thanksgiving trip through Southeast Asia like Beth Spotswood (click here)...



...nor invited to any Thanksgiving feasts for friends and family...



...we decided to eat delicious fish and chips at the Bell Tower pub on Polk Street and then walk to Fisherman's Wharf...



...where we could pretend to be foreign tourists...



...who didn't give a damn about the holiday.



In solidarity with the local crab fishermen shut out of their fishing season by the recent oil spill...



...
most of Fisherman's Wharf was going crabless...



...but you could buy crabs from Washington State for $12.95 a pound if you were really determined on a Thanksgiving crustacean.



The sea lions at Pier 39 were in full bad boy mode...



...entertaining the tourists...



...who seemed to be speaking every language known to man.



The day couldn't have been more delightful, and we ended it by watching a couple of American girlie movies, "Sweet Land" and "The Horse Whisperer," which put us into a perfect Thanksgiving coma.

dear sf mike, to stay in the holiday spirit, we saw the Russian hit "day watch", check it out, it's a completely over the top operatic Russian popcorn movie, makes the matrix look like the horse whisperer, seriously! saudacoes do Texas

Dear Pedro: I've seen the first in the series, "Night Watch," and loved every goofy second of it. I'll be sure to get the sequel now that it's out.
