From my travel journal: Friday 1 April 2011, late
Dinner at Fisherman’s Wharf, in a bakery’s restaurant. I had a crab and corn bisque in a sourdough breadbowl, which seemed like a good way to combine trying some seafood (well, you have to at a place called Fisherman’s Wharf!) with trying some bread (it’s a bakery!).
Exciting plans for tomorrow, involving sealions, cable cars, and Alcatraz (not necessarily all at the same time…).
You weren’t mistaken – there are a LOT of Australian trees in California, especially eucalyptus. They’re popular because they handle the dry conditions well.
