One of our best friends in the world is turning three this week. So we spent our Saturday morning at his pirate-themed birthday party, snacking on Bob’s donuts and exploring historic ships. Walking along the poop deck of the Balcotha made me feel like I was Captain Freaking Hook. There were beautiful vintage cars and magazines on the old ferry to Sausilito. The whole experience was like visiting a different time. Plus, it's proximity to Ghirarelli's is pretty ideal.
Frankly, it's surprising I haven't been to Hyde Street Pier before now because the number of peanut butter sundaes I eat at Ghirardelli's would give a lesser woman diabetes. I'm just saying, if you love a perfect combination of sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy, wonder and delight... then this pier's location is perfect.
