The story behind the image
Right next to Pier 39 at Fisherman’s Wharf you will find the Sea Lion Rocks of San Francisco. Nobody knows exactly why they are here, but they seem to like it. Despite being loud and rather smelly they do look wonderful, don’t you think?
This photo illustrates once more how an area can change. The beautiful lighthouse in the background is the Pier 41 Lighthouse – or so I thought. Turns out it’s Forbes Island, a 700-ton barge featuring a 40-ft lighthouse, a dozen palms and a tiny sandy beach. Wikipedia has the full story. Wow.
