I set out on my trek at 10:00 a.m. to take photos of those iconic structures. Although I had Google Maps to show me the way, I still made numerous wrong turns on my journey. (You don’t want me to navigate for you. I’m directionally impaired.) That “easy 30-minute walk” from my flat, around the harbor, and to the photo op point took 1½ hours. But no worries, I had plenty of time.
My journey took me around the south end of the harbor, where I spotted an old-fashioned diner decorated with bright murals—Harry’s Cafe de Wheels. I learned later the cafe was a major tourist attraction and a “must” for visiting celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Robert Mitchum, Marlene Dietrich, and surprisingly--Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame.
