Waterfront on #Embarcadero

We thought we would say goodbye to #SanFrancisco in our last few weeks here by walking along the waterfront alongside Embarcadero Highway.  We started down by the Baseball Park and made our way around until we reached the Exploratorium on Pier 15, taking plenty of pictures of boats and bridges along the way.  One remarkable landmark is the kid’s slide inside of the coke bottle on the outer edge of the Baseball Park, next to a giant catching mitt (it looks like leather!).
