At The Pier... Waving...
For those that have read my blog for awhile, you know that any time I'm quiet for a period of time I've been traveling. If you read yesterday's post, you know my recent adventure was in magnificent San Francisco!
In town for a work-related convention, I was itching to seek the Golden State's Treasures. Not knowing how much time I'd have, I compiled a list of Virtuals, highly-favorited caches and a webcam. I nabbed the At The Pier webcam GCMKWT the very first night!
The At The Pier webcam focuses on three famous Frisco destinations on Pier 39 - Fisherman's Wharf: the sea lions, Golden Gate Bridge, and Alcatraz. It's a popular camera - constantly being moved - which makes this adventure all the more difficult because you can't maneuver the camera from your phone. That's right - you have to do it the old-fashion way... with a buddy's help.
You would think this would be a cakewalk with my other half home recuperating from surgery and sitting next to a computer 24/7, right? Nope. Just as I left for the trip our Internet went out. Aargh! Luckily I had a backup plan - my sister only extorted me a little.
If you get a chance for this webcam, do it. Of the dozen I've experienced this one has the clearest picture. You can find the instructions here:
Skip the overpriced souvenir shops - this was the best souvenir ever! Hopefully when you give it a go, the floating docks will be a little busier with barking sea mammals behind you!
