Greetings from Fisherman's Wharf

We spent most of Friday at Adam and Katherine's new apartment, first waiting for furniture to be delivered from IKEA, then putting together the kitchen table and chairs plus a big living room chair while waiting for Macy's to get there with the bed. We ate bagels we'd bought at House of Bagels the day before plus some snacks picked up at a CVS down the street, where we also stopped for some household essentials. Daniel joined us and brought us Mrs. Fields' cookies after lunch. When finally the bed had linens on it, we went out.

We headed down to Fisherman's Wharf, walking out on Pier 39 to see the many sea lions sunning themselves among the gulls, pelicans, and cormorants. Then we went to Boudin Bakery for wonderful sourdough bread bowls with soup and half sandwiches with cheese, after which we walked along the waterfront in view of Alcatraz to the Musee Mecanique, which Daniel had discovered -- an antique penny arcade with all manner of historic amusements from fortunetelling machines to musical monkey devices, where we competed at air hockey and skee ball!
