A Snip in San Francisco
A story of a Crab MOC in San Francisco. With Pictures! :D
About this creation
Hi all. On September the 11th 2013 My father, best friend, Snip and myself took a day trip to scenic San Francisco California. The following are some of the notable events that happened to our favorite little Crab MOC.

Naturally, Matteo thought he was going. This is him instructing me to "get in back." He didn't like it too much when I yanked him out of the car and tossed him in the MOC room and decided to take snip just to spite him. *evil grin*


Here's Snip on the dashboard of my dad's new car on our way to San Francisco.




We stopped at a restaurant for lunch, which was where Snip discovered a horrible truth...Creators/humans EAT CRABS! I suppose he had to find out eventually.


Waiting in line sucks -_-'


Heading into the City from the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge.


We got lost only about forty gajillion times! >.<


After so much excitement Snip was pretty tired, so he took a nap. In the meantime us humans went to a famous record store in the city and scored a bunch of good stuff. After that(and getting lost another 2 gajillion times) we made it down to the pier where he tried to meet the local wildlife...


...


...


...He didn't make any friends there.


After realizing the local birds were jerks, not like his friend Nekhbet he decided to pose for a picture. ^_^


Believe it or not, my friend Stefan found Snip a pick axe to hold while on our trip. He found it in the parking lot of a restaurant. Someone lost part of their lego set. O_o Lucky snip. Now he's Snip the 49er, gonna mine some gold in der hills!


While walking along the piers, we stopped at a Chocolate shop for a quick snack and a beverage.


Snip had some to. <3


The true highlight of Snip's day was the trip to the Bay Aquarium!


It was here that he got to meet new friends...


and family! Though I didn't have the heart to tell him that his uncles were in jail ^^;


I think he was pretty glad he was on the right side of that glass. There were some pretty big fish in that tank. O.O


There were even a few land animal friends for him to visit. Though most of them were asleep. :P The snake seemed oddly friendly. Ironic isn't it?


Snip in his natural habitat. Lol


I think this little cheeseball was enjoying being in front of the camera just a liiiiitle too much. XD Here we have the famous Alcatraz in the background. Unfortunately the Golden Gate Bridge was obscured by fog by this part of the day.


There's those darned Crabcakes again! >:(


After walking around the pier and visiting the shops we sat down to a wonderful dinner at one of the restaurants. Ironically I did have crab in the dish I ordered, but not before I had a bowl of delicious fresh clam chowder.


Snip seemed to have grown a sense of humor and "auditioned for dinner." I assured him I wouldn't eat him because he makes a better friend than he does a meal.


We all enjoyed a nice view of the city as it got dark from our table.


After enjoying the view of the city at night and attempting to visit the Wax Museum(which sadly is closed till next year), we decided to call it a day and head home. Here is a photo of the western span of the SF/Oakland Bay Bridge all lit up.



And that's it. We made it home, safe and sound, and little Snip went back to his shelf along with all the other MOCs...and Matteo proceeded to pout and be a grouch for the next few days. *Giggles*

Quoting L.A. Miranda How the Fidgeralds did I miss THIS!? Was really beautiful! In almost each photo I said 'AAAAAWWWWW!', so cute! Love the postal of you two and the picture with the real crabs the most, but I find the funniest one the first with Mattee xD Glad you have fun, dear! Oh, and... You too, Dave.
You probably missed it cause i didn't throw it in any of the groups like I usually do. *shrugs* Snip snips his claws in thanks. I think the funniest one is the real crabs and him on a "dinner plate." Thanks Lianyu. :D
