Although there are some interesting restaurants clustered about Ghirardelli Square, we were drawn there for the chocolate confections.

As we bumped our way through the store, passing crowded tables laden with chocolate candy in see-through bags trimmed with bright ribbons, I selected an assortment for us and some dark chocolate pieces for my mother--my kindred spirit in all things chocolate!(picture 2)

Meanwhile, our grandson stepped into the ice cream line, which seemed to go on and on, out the door and then some. After a time, he received his mounded Cookies and Cream waffle cone (which by the way, was cheaper than that at Fisherman's Wharf) and we all settled at a patio table to rest our feet.

Soon, a pigeon wandered over and seemed very interested in our grandson's treat. He ripped a small piece from the cone and tossed it to the ground in front of the bird. In no time at all, other pigeons arrived, probably thinking "Ah-ha, maybe we'll get a hand-out, too!". With each small token tossed to the ground, more and more pigeons arrived. See our grandson, the 'bird whisperer' of Pennsylvania...hee,hee!(picture 3)
