On Monday we took a bus into the city and walked through Chinatown. There are two parallel streets, one for tourists and the other (Stockton) for locals. So after we got tired of looking at knick-knacks, we went to where the real action was -- the vegetable and fish markets. Prices were incredibly cheap. Quarts of strawberries that were $2.50 at Safeway were $1 a box. Fresh broccoli, with the stems trimmed off, was 39 cents/lb!

Unfortunately there was no way for us to cart any of this back to the boat, so we just gawked and eventually had lunch at a hole-in-the-wall deli, near the "Wa Li Bakery" and "Ho Kee Market".

After eating we made our way over to Fisherman's Wharf and walked along the waterfront toward the San Francisco Marina to look for some Canadian boaters we had met at Drake's Bay.

Finally we caught the bus back to Sausalito, where we had dinner with our neighbor's mother, who had never been on a sailboat, at least not one that was being lived in.
