This is really cute and great! A very clever picture indeed....where is the Harbor Master office located? I'll bet I know but I just cant remember at the moment!! Is it somewhere north (up) from the Ferry Building ?

@Denny Jump Photo: It is the stone building along The Marina Green - where Alhambra intersects Marina Boulevard (at Scott). Thanks, Denny.

OK = Thanks Stephen...That's right...that whole Marina area - I really have not been there that much - it's the only part of the Peninsula (besides Hunter's Point) that I have not traveled around in very much. I think they charge admission to drive through the Marina District if you aren't in a Land Rover, right??

@Denny Jump Photo: There are no restrictions on driving any personal vehicles through the Marina. Ironically - they do have restrictions on any vehicles capable of carrying 7 passengers or more (to keep out tour buses) - so it may be that the Land Rover that gets a citation. The Marina is the neighborhood along the northern San Francisco waterfront. Were you driving from downtown to The Golden Gate Bridge - you'd most likely drive through here.

The 17-Mile Scenic Toll Road is down in Carmel - about a hundred miles south of here. A genuine rip-off of the first order! Pay money to wealthy people for the privilege of driving along the walls which prevent you from seeing their ostentatious homes.

Well said, sir...oh yes i am very well familiar with the 17 mile drive..we used to go down to Carmel at least once a year when I was a kid in Roseville...the drive was free then ;-) Not no more!
