The Balclutha is a huge three masted Tall Ship that sits in the bay at Hyde Street Pier. It hosted several music performances and Capstan Demo...you can see a real guy up there on the mast! I would not do well at that job at all!
Down in the hold of the Ferry Boat The Eureka we listened to African American/West Indies Songs; Songs New and Old, Irish Traditions ...
We broke for lunch and walked across the street to a place we like where we had hot clam chowder and San Francisco sour dough bread that was really sour just the way we like it...I liked these chairs at the bar!
The finale of the day was outside where the winds blew hard and we huddled together to stay warm as the singers sang their hearts out...This is our friend, Dick Holdstock, giving his all with a Shanty song on the pier.
Tom Lewis was another salty dog who sang and entertained on several instruments...he said he was celebrating his 70th birthday! And his wife's name is Lynn. ;-) (not me).
And then we drove home across the fogged in Golden Gate Bridge!
To see my drawings from this event see an earlier post this week and another tomorrow!
