By Mr. TWS — I’d heard of truffle hunting before and understood the concept but for whatever reason I always pictured the practical joke called “snipe hunting”. When we had a chance to try truffle hunting it in a place where truffles are treasured and are hunted commonly, I was excited by the opportunity.
Over the years, Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco has gotten cluttered with souvenir shops, street performers and throngs of tourists. Sadly, I think that it long ago lost much of its maritime charm and historic appeal. So why do Mr. TWS and I still insist on bringing our out-of-town visitors down to the wharf?
