Who needs security guards when we have watchful sea gulls looking over the marina?
This is downtown's Embarcadero Marina Park - North...
don't know what the tree is (I'm not a native Californian),
but I sure love looking at it!
** 10 May 2009: I finally found out what sort of tree this is. It's Erythrina caffra (coral tree).
A bunch of navy boats were out making waves. The yellow and orange boat to the right is our harbor pilot... He guides visiting ships in and out of the bay.
