San Francisco Watercolor Note Card Wind Shift
A typical weekend in San Francisco includes a wide range of aquatic activities on the San Francisco Bay.  There are windsurfers near the Golden Gate Bridge and Ferry Boats scurrying from Marin to San Francisco.  Sail boats blanket the windy Bay waters to the tune of barking sea lions at Pier 39 and seagulls crying along the wharf.  The Iconic Coit Tower, a 210-foot tower in the Telegraph Hill Neighborhood, built in 1933 stands proud, a beacon to San Francisco’s amazing history.  The Transamerica Pyramid, the tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi from 1972 to 1974 remains a landmark within the San Francisco’s Financial District.  The San Francisco Bay Bridge, seen on the left, was the largest and most expensive bridge of its time, and connects San Francisco to Oakland.
“This painting reminds me of when I first came to San Francisco via train from Minnesota.  We disembarked in Oakland and then took the Ferry to the Ferry Building in San Francisco.”

San Francisco Watercolor Note Card Powell Street Cable Car
The San Francisco cable car system is the world's last manually operated cable car system. An icon of San Francisco, the Powell-Mason Cable Car begins at the Powell Street/Market Street turntable, and runs up and over Nob Hill and down to Bay Street at Fisherman's Wharf. Along with Lombard Street, the Buena Vista Cafe, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf, the cable car is a beloved treasure unique to San Francisco.
The Powel Cable Car travels through Union Square, the central shopping area, hotel, and theater district of San Francisco.  Union Square got its name because it was once used for rallies and support for the Union Army during the American Civil War,
“The old Emporium used to be where Powell Street meets Market Street.  At one time, I sold toys on the 4th floor; my father sold shoes on the main floor; and my mother worked in the stock rooms.  It is funny how some of these past memories seem fresh as a new day.”

San Francisco Watercolor Note Card Fisherman's Wharf
San Francisco fishing fleets are the heartbeat of Fisherman’s Wharf.  Stretching from Ghirardelli Square to Pier 39, the wharf is famous for its wide variety of seafood.  You can’t leave Fisherman’s Wharf without sampling the Clam Chowder, Dungeness Crab, a Salmon Sandwich and of course the famed San Francisco Sourdough French Bread.
Fisherman's Wharf gets its name and from San Francisco’s Gold Rush days when Italian immigrant fishermen settled in the area and fished for Dungeness crab.  Fisherman’s Wharf landmarks include Pier 39, the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, the Cannery Shopping Center, Ghirardelli Square, Ripley's Believe it or Not museum, Rainforest Cafe, the Wax Museum and so much more. 
 “As a child, I always enjoyed the fun and energy of the wharf.  Those memories are like yesterday.”

Buena Vista Cafe
Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf at 2765 Hyde Street (at Beach), the Buena Vista Cafe is most famous for their Irish Coffee, where they serve up to 2,000 a day.  Buena Vista means “Good View” and what a view it has. Across the street from the Hyde Street Cable Car turnaround and looking out towards the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz, and hearing the Ding, Ding, Ding of the Cable car, you are surrounded by everything that is uniquely and wonderfully San Francisco.
The original building where the Buena Vista sits today was a boardinghouse until 1916 when the landlord converted the first floor into a saloon. Irish Coffee was introduced in 1952 and a San Francisco landmark and tradition were born.
“This corner is always high energy with the fun and frantic hustle and bustle of people and the clang…clang of the many Cable Cars at Beach and Hyde Streets.”

Racing the Fog
Connecting San Francisco to Marin County (Sausalito), the majestic Golden Gate Bridge spans the entrance to the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean.  The Bridge is almost 1.7 miles long and is one of the most internationally recognized landmarks of San Francisco.  The Bridge has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.  And Frommer’s Travel Guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed bridge in the world”.
One reminder – dress warmly when walking the bridge.  Typically 108 out of 365 days in San Francisco are foggy and cold.  Among major U.S. cities, San Francisco has the coldest daily mean, maximum, and minimum temperature for June, July and August. Brrrr….
“I will always remember this painting because I was on crutches on the steep Marin Headlands after having broken my knee on Christmas Night in 1970.
