"It's the economy, stupid" was a phase that Bill Clinton used in his campaign against George Bush senior. The phrase today is even more relevant. Prices are going crazy on just about everything. What pray tell could I do to enjoy my weekend roving lifestyle while not breaking the piggy bank. The obvious answer came to me, It's the picnic stupid! Why not enjoy a free walk in a beautiful location? We will pack from home or put together along the way a splendid picnic. Foot power is still free and window shopping is too. I've got the camera gear and a computer so we will document our journey and share the results.
The first picnic is along Embarcadero South from the Ferry Plaza to ATT park, home of the S.F. Giants. The Ferry Plaza offers unlimited ideas for a picnic. We kept it simple and picked up a "Renzo Special" sandwich from Mastrelli's Deli and off we went. We headed south toward the Bay Bridge.
No charge for the view
In need of Java ? There are choices along the way
In the shadow of the Giant's ballpark there is South Beach Harbor , a beautiful location for our picnic.
I'm hungry now!
