visiting the waterfront --- #8 of 8
San Francisco, California
Wednesday, October 13, 2010

This is Forbes Island, a floating "island" built on a barge that is docked at Pier 39. It was built by Forbes Thor Kiddoo, a houseboat millionaire, and the island features a working lighthouse, a sandy beach, a waterfall, and rooms for rent if you would like to host a special event.

Forbes Island also has a restaurant devoted to "casual fine dining", which means that you're welcome to enjoy a fine meal even if you're wearing jeans.

The lighthouse on Forbes Island is a real working lighthouse even though it's privately owned. The next time that you visit Pier 39, it's ready to welcome you!

I always wanted to take pictures of lighthouse. I want to try if I can make a good picture of the stairs :)
