Fisherman's Wharf

After visiting Lombard Street we walked down the hill to Fisherman's Wharf, a rather tacky waterfront area reminiscent if the streets surrounding Niagara Falls: lots of t-shirt & souvenir shops, wax museums, and bad food. But we did discover the World Famous Bushman, a homeless man that has been scaring passersby since 1980. He started out dressing up as a robot but found there were too many of those, so now crouches down behind some eucalyptus branches which he shakes at people as they past. He cajoles tips out of them afterward and is reported to have made $60k in a good year! That's him in the last shot.
