Fisherman's Wharf and SF Giants

It was a beautiful day in San Francisco this past Saturday (July 17) and we were lucky enough to take in the perfect weather by strolling through the Fisherman's Wharf and then by catching a ballgame at AT&T Park.

But first we had to get our grub on. Our lunch consisted of clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, a crab, bay shrimp and avocado ceviche, and fried calamari and chips. Everything was delish!


Afterward, we decided that the best way to walk off all the calories we just consumed was to tour the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum. Most of the exhibits were very interesting and we definitely learned a few unusual trivia. Ella sure enjoyed some of the more eccentric exhibits.

Then it was almost game time, so we headed out toward AT&T Park, which is only about 3 miles away from the Wharf, but rush hour traffic (yes, even on the weekend) through Embarcadero prolonged our arrival time. We managed to find an alternate route and made it to the park before the game started, but not early enough to get a promotional Lincecum bobblehead doll. RJ was extremely disappointed.

Not so disappointing were our seats. Afraid that we were in nosebleed section, I was pleasantly surprised to find that we probably had one of the best views in the park. See for yourself!

What made it all special was that it was Alexa's first ballgame! She and Ella had a lot of fun, eating cotton candy, peanuts, pretzels, hot dogs and french fries. Yes, that's what we call "baseball diet." Haha.

We had so much fun that we plan to go to another game before the end of the baseball season. We just wish there was a game against the Seattle Mariners

Oh! One more thing... the SF Giants beat the NY Mets with a score of 8-4. Yay! Now, we'd like to think that the Blanco family was their lucky charm.
