Strawberry Pancakes

I love strawberry pancakes topped with whipped cream. Nothing beats them for breakfast.

Except my eating plan consists of no breads, no pastas, no sugars. It was hard at Fisherman's Wharf yesterday to pass on all the many temptations.

Ice cream shop
Kettle corn shop
Chocolate shop
Crepes shop
Sourdough bakery
Fried fish restaurant
Cupcake shop
Pretzel stand
Candy shop

You get the idea. 

I stayed away from it all. But I was thinking about those crepes. They smelled wonderful. They are probably the closest thing I'll ever get to eat that slightly resembles a pancake without straying far from my plan. 

So this morning I returned and ordered a strawberry crepe, no sugar no whipped cream, and watched them make it through the window. It sure was tasty! Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I couldn't finish it. 
I also stopped by the pier to say good morning to all the sea lions. They sure were a noisy bunch. 
Then off to catch another cruise ship for a ride back to Vancouver. 

I'm so thankful for the life I have.
