Aquatic Park

Aquatic Park


On Sunday, after doing an errand in San Francisco, D. and I took a look at the WPA-era murals the Maritim Museum, after which we took a little walk in Aquatic Park.  Here are some of the pics I took.


One of a pair of carved wooden lions in the museum.  Lions were popular deck ornaments in the seafaring era.  This one dates from 1863.





Some of the murals and their details, depicting the fantastical undersea realms of the lost cities Mu and Atlantis.

















After such a mind-bending experience, we go outside to stroll around Aquatic Park and the Municipal Pier.





What is the bay without gulls?







A view of Alcatraz.





Looking at the city from the Municipal Pier.





A sea lion pokes his head out of the water in Aquatic Park Cove.  Maybe he is Bitey McBiterson?





A western grebe is on patrol for little fish to eat.





Derpy pigeon is derpy.





A gull contemplates life on the Municipal Pier.





The masts and rigging of the old lumber schooner C. A. Thayer at nearby Hyde St. Pier thrust up into the afternoon sun.
