Hey, you took my corndog!

August 23, 2011 |  Category:   life travels

We spent the morning by the wharf on Sunday morning and yeah…we were one of those tourists who keep the San Francisco fleece business afloat and healthy because Claudine was freezing and we had to run in and buy her something warm. And people were swimming in this water! At 58 degrees!

Apparently the gang all had a grand time and played old school pinball and other things while I went to my photoshoot in a nearby neighborhood. A seagull snatched Mia’s corndog right out of her hand (not the first time this has happened either – Claudine lost a hotdog to a seagull in similar fashion on Long Island). The view and the water, however, was worth all the shivering. I’m sort of fascinated by the fog. It hovers over the city waiting to roll in like a smoke monster. It always looks a bit ominous far away on the horizon.

    Yes, it’s been a cold summer, but our best weather is in September. Not sure if the fam is still in SF today (Tuesday), but it got up into the 80s. Unusual and absolutely glorious. Ahhhhhh. Hope you’re enjoying our precious city!

    Hey Jenna! For a minute I thought these pix were in Seattle, where we live! As someone who was born and raised in Hawaii, I have to tell you that I am amazed by the native folks who are used to San Fran and the Pac NW and are impervious to the cold — my husband thinks 58 degrees is a balmy day at the beach. (can you say cray-zay?) Love your vacation pix 🙂

    Good to see the chilli San Francisco, especially being in warm New York;)).
    I lived there last year, absolutely adore the city, except for its foggy & cold summer of course;).

    I think your shots are great, as always. But did the tourists four shots down ask to have their photograph published online, in a popular mommy blog? The eye is drawn towards them. Seems pretty insensitive to publish that.

    I also get a bit creeped out/amazed by fog…(and what?! is the commenter above me for real?) Silly.

    @d.h. You assume that permission was not asked for?

    Ahh, nice posts. I love SF, but I’m a valley girl. Born just up the way, but lived most up my life in the Sacramento area. It is always chilly there in SF but it has endless adventures waiting around the corners. Keeping enjoying the West Coast’s version of “The City”.

    Aw, you’re not the only ones to keep the fleece business afloat! I’m a Bay Area native and will still run into those stores on some visits b/c I forget how cold it can get 😛 BTW, love the photos!

    Every time I see fog, I’m going to imagine a smoke monster now. Thanks for that. 🙂

    I believe the expression goes, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”!!!!! Yep.

    Ha ha have you been following us?!!! We went to the exact same places as you less than 2 weeks ago.Did you look around the Balclutha i(by the old ships) my children loved it. I think you have better pictures than us though. My husband’s camera ran out of batteries when we got to Glacier point in Yosemite so we snapped the view on the iPhone! Luckily we had no puking! Going to NYC tomorrow – won’t see you there! Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

    damn seagull! I would be so angry, corndogs are my fav. That would also cause me to have a seagull paranoia; the birds-style.
