一座氣勢雄渾的大城繁榮市區,樓閣參差,獨一無二的建築奇葩,很多精英人士的聚集
地,更是近些年來房地產市場的新貴,乘遊船在碧波蕩漾的舊金山海灣,碧藍的海水,遠
眺舊金山的高樓大廈金融區,構成一幅壯闊景色,讓人忍不住發出讚嘆聲,牢牢地鎖住人
們的目光,經得起久久品味。

Stunning beauty of San Francisco downtown skyline as viewed from Red and White Fleet's cruise on the
beautiful San Francisco Bay. Wow! This is so beautiful!

The tallest building is Salesforce Tower, standing at 1070 feet and 61 stories tall. It is the tallest building in
California. The top floor (Ohana Floor) with spectacular views is open to public tour only one Saturday per
month and the tour ticket is sold out for many months. Tour information can be seen
here.

The second-tallest skyscraper is Transamerica Pyramid (泛美金字塔), which is a 48-story futurist pointy
building, 853 feet tall, in the Financial District of San Francisco. Transamerica Pyramid is not open for public
tour.

We came to San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf again on October 29, 2019. We got on a Red and White
Fleet's Cruise at Pier 43½ in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf to enjoy the scenic cruise on the bay.
氣勢宏偉,移步就換景,海灣碧透,逍遙風情,遠可觀舊金山市內繁華的區域,氣勢雄
渾,依山臨海灣、蔚然大觀,有一種超凡脫俗的氣派,遊人們被宏偉氣派所迷,住來舊金
山海灣,必定要泛舟海灣上,才可領略它高大雄偉的浪漫情懷。

在海灣遊船上欣賞,山水美景和舊金山城市繁華盡在遊人的遠望近看之中,清澈的海灣更
加湛藍,舊金山海灣的風情、景致與性格描繪的淋漓盡致。

Another fantastic wider view of San Francisco skyline. Notice that a cormorant is doing a running start to take
off from the bay.
舊金山海灣時常有 一群 一群的 溏鵝 出現,有時低掠在水面上。

There are also some brown pelicans flying just above the water surface on the bay.
海天一色,一汪海灣水中的岩石島,猶如蓬萊仙境,這個島上從古至今棲息著眾多的鵜
鶘,最早發現此島的西班牙人,將之命名為「La Isla de Los Alcatrace」,意即「鵜鶘之
島」或「溏鵝之島」, 地理位置如海中孤島,四面峭壁且海灣水深 也很冷。四周環繞著藍
天碧海,視野寬闊,置身其間可盡覽海灣的瀲豔水波,與金門大橋同為舊金山灣的著名觀
光景點,我們的紅白遊船環繞美麗的鵜鶘之島一周。

The Alcatraz Island.
浪漫美麗的舊金山海灣,擁有得天獨厚的美景,開闊的視野,山明水秀的美景,明淨清澈
的海水,觀賞跨越海灣雄偉的的金門大橋,盡收眼中,給人留下極深刻的印象。

這次很幸運的天氣很晴朗,完全沒有霧氣,讓人不斷讚嘆的美麗境界,吸引許多攝影愛好
者在海灣遊船上捕捉鏡頭。 (但雲霧繚繞,騰雲駕霧的金門大橋也是很有味道的!!)。

The clear view of the famous Golden Gate Bridge without the fog.
美不勝收的海灣山色,和風拂面,清爽宜人,令人難忘的碧藍和純淨,盡情徜徉於海灣的
旖旎風情之中,汪洋一片,豪邁! 吸引了不少作家及畫家臨海灣作畫,也是洗滌、沈澱心
靈的好地方

Another view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
一仰難盡的氣勢,充溢胸口,一種懾人的宏偉力量,遊船從金門大橋下面穿過,在金門大
橋下方轉了一圈後,慢慢駛向海灣中央的那座 溏鵝之島,轉眼已過萬重山,飽覽山光水
色。

Yet another view of Golden Gate Bridge when our tour boat went underneath the bridge.
許多燕鷗在舊金山海灣上追捕覓食。

Many terns and gulls are quite active on the bay catching fish. Some of the terns plunge dive from mid-air
down to the water to cat fish. Then take off from the water as shown on these three pictures.
One of several seals or sea lions swimming in the bay.

In the one-hour cruise on the bay, we saw several dolphins surfaced
briefly. But I was not quick enough to get
good pictures of them.
壯闊的海灣有著寬廣豪放之美,遠觀奧克蘭--舊金山 海灣大橋的西段,從耶爾巴布埃納島
到舊金山的懸索橋。

豁然開朗的海灣,在蔚藍海面上可遠眺遠方的伯克利加州大學校園。

Berkeley Hill on the east side of San Francisco Bay.
近看伯克利加州大學校園的鐘樓,記得當年此求學時校園鐘聲悠遠。

Zoom in for a closer view of UC Berkeley campus on Berkeley Hill. Good exercise for students and faculty
members to walk up and down on the hilly campus everyday.

天使島是州立公園。這裡適合健行、騎腳踏車、郊遊。喜歡刺激的遊客則可以嘗試操縱獨
木舟。

May be the Angel Island in the middle of this picture.
景致視野、遼闊清新,更令人感到格外舒暢自在。

May be another view of the Angel Island from a different angle.
金銀島是人工岛, 是用建造海灣大橋(Bay Bridge)時所挖出的泥土建造而成,位於
Yerba Buena 島的北邊。自從2008年島上的軍事基地移交給市政府之後,成為了舊金山
的一個新興社區。在金銀島上面可以看到對面高樓最多的金融區,再加上左邊海灣大橋
(Bay Bridge)徹夜點亮的橋燈的交映,可以欣賞燈光倒影映在海面上非常迷人的景象。由
於位於海灣中間,只要不起大霧,可以遠眺舊金山市區,若您想看舊金山夜景,來這裡看
保證不會錯!

The Treasure Island, Yerba Buena Island and the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge.
孤帆遠影碧空盡,輕輕地蕩漾,遠望舊金山-奧克蘭海灣大橋,耶爾巴布埃納島的左邊是

柯伊特塔潔白塔身,傲然地屹立在電報山頂(Telegraph Hill),顯得清麗脫俗,非常顯
眼,在市區任何地方都看得見。塔頂設有瞭望台,視野可360度,登樓遠眺,俯瞰舊金山
市區和海灣景色,風光盡收眼底,遠望金門大橋上的夕陽,吸引人駐足觀賞大半天。所以
柯伊特塔是舊金山市區的著名地標和遊覽勝地。

The 210-foot Coit Tower, a slender white elegant column rising from the top of Telegraph Hill in Pioneer Park
in San Francisco, overlooking the San Francisco waterfront. It has been an emblem of San Francisco's skyline
since its completion in 1933. The viewing platform at the top offers magnificent 360 degree panoramic views
over the city and the bay, unbelievable views of the city. Many photos of the fantastic views can be seen
here.
Visitors pay an Elevator Entrance Fee to take the elevator to go up to the viewing platform at the top. The
inside is great with all the murals from 1934 showing California business, agriculture and home life of the
period. The address of Coit Tower is 1 Telegraph Hill Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94133.

Sutro Tower is a 977 ft three-pronged TV and radio antenna tower in San Francisco, California. Rising from a
hill between Twin Peaks and Mount Sutro near Clarendon Heights, it is a prominent feature of the city skyline
and a landmark for city residents and visitors. Eleven television stations, four FM radio stations and 20
wireless and mobile communications users (i.e. law enforcement agencies, taxi cabs, school buses, wireless
Internet, etc.) rely on Sutro Tower antennas to transmit signals over the air to the entire Bay Area.
碧海藍天,風光美不勝收。

Two views of Sausalito Area.
Two views of San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park as viewed from the boat on the bay: The west
end of San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf area is San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. It is a
world-class collection of historic ships and maritime memorabilia in a unique national park setting. It offers
visitors the sights, sounds, smells and stories of Pacific Coast maritime history. The Park includes a
magnificent fleet of historic ships, a Visitor Center, Maritime Museum, Maritime Research Center, and Aquatic
Park Historic District (NPS Website). YouTube video description of this Maritime National Historical Park can
be seen
here, here, here and here.
我們搭乘 紅白遊船 (Red and White Fleet)公司的遊輪,從漁人碼頭 43½號碼頭 出發
的遊輪,航線就是直奔金門大橋,在橋下轉一圈後轉往 Alcatraz Island 前進,從它旁邊
駛過後返回碼頭。

歷史的三桅帆船:它是1883年在蘇格蘭建造完成的貨船,現在已變成博物館,可登船參

舊金山地處丘陵地帶,所以城市道路很有特點,不蜿蜒卻很起伏,很多地方坡度很陡,遠
望舊金山的街道,這些街道非常陡,街上行駛的汽車好像要直衝大海。
氣勢磅礴的海岸線,碧海藍天所構成的一幅絕美景觀。
海灣上的小艇,海灣碧水微泛漣漪,小船悠悠,相映成趣。
溏鵝 低掠在水面上。
