San Francisco :: The Cable Car Turnaround

After the three magical days in Seattle, we, the Dalverians, were off to San Francisco. The first drawing day was a special one: it RAINED all day long. A San Franciscan expat friend of mine said, there's a 0.1% chance of rain in July, and we got it! Apparently, according to local TV news, the rain has ruined weekend plans for many distressed interviewees. Well, it didn't stop us.

We got on the cable car at the Powell street turnaround, and were on the way to the Hyde Street Pier. It rained, allright, but that worked to our advantage, as the waiting line for the cable car was not too long.  But then...about half-way to the pier, our car came to a screeching halt because of a fallen tree on the way... Eventually we got to the destination on a shuttle bus. The day was damp and grey, and finding cover on the pier to draw was not easy. Here's a drawing of the Hyde street cable car turnaround.

We went back to the pier for the 4th of July. The pier was barely recognizable on a hot sunny day, filled with insane crowds and street performers. But that's in another post.
