Eureka Ferry Boat @ Hyde Street Pier
All photos taken by me @ Hyde Street Pier, San Francisco.
While my friend Joyce was in town last week, it was fun going around playing tourist. I love Hyde Street Pier which is located adjacent to Aquatic Park and has many a boat/ship docked there including the Eureka ferry boat. This boat is permanently docked at the pier and serves as a historical museum along the bay. Throughout the year there are scheduled free days at Hyde Street Pier where you can hop on board and visit the boats. I didn't know when in that area last week that it was a free day so I took advantage of the short time I had and visited the Eureka again. You can find out more about the history etc... of this ship by visiting http://www.nps.gov/safr/historyculture/eureka-history.htm
I went a little crazy with photos, as usual, so enjoy the Eureka montage below.
