Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic-The Final

A clock at Lake Merced Gold Course
Will be finishing up my blogs on the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. Got some so-called Selfies that I took. I was hanging out between the 12th green and 13th tee and asked some players if I could take their pic and they did:

Cydney Clarton

Morgan Pressel
Paula Creamer
Chella Choi
Stacey Lewis
Ai Miyazato
And the tourney winner-Lydia Ko
And here is some other pics of the event:

Looking down from the 13th tee
Looking on the 18th green from the grandstand
Looking from the first tee box
And they had a lot of cool art on the course:

Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic Pro-Am-Part I

I went to the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic Pro-Am at the Lake Merced Golf Course and had a great time. The Pro-Am day was the only day to that fans were able to bring their cameras in and take pics. I got really lucky in taking a lot of great pics. I found a great spot between the 12th green and and the 13th tee box  and all of the golfers were  really super nice when I asked them to to take a pic at that location. Also, just walking the course was cool. This will be a three or four-part blog as I want to share to my pics:

Hyde Street Pier

While walking near Aquatic Park, I visited the Hyde Street Pier. I had never been there, which I found interesting. It is pretty cool with all the old ships and ship parts you can see and visit. It was built for tourists but still cool:

A Steam Engine Donkey-These were on the pier and used for power when loading and unloading ships
Petamluma's Sternwheel
Old Spar's-Spar are any wooden support for rigging of a ship
Block and tackles
Of course there were old ships there:

The paddle tug- Eppleton Hall
The Balclutha
The steam tug Hercules
The Eureka
Hyde Street Pier when combined with Aquatic Park is a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Aquatic Park in San Francisco

Down near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco is a quiet little place called Aquatic Park. Not many tourists there (as they are at Fisherman's Wharf) just a nice place to sit, relax and enjoy the views and you can swim in the Bay:

Some of the views
Boats on the Bay

Some Flowers
And it is historic:

The spot where the first ship landed in San Francisco Bay

And I got to include the seagulls
