The San Francisco Bush Man

Last March, while visiting San Francisco,
I experienced a local legend in action.

The Bush Man of San Francisco.

Outside the Alcatraz Ferry Pier, on Fisherman's Wharf, was a man.
A man, sitting on a milk crate, hidden behind large eucalyptus branches.
And ever so often, he would lunge from the bushes and yell at unsuspecting tourists,
causing them to scream and jump in fright.
And hoping to earn tips.

 People (us included) stopped to watch as he scared other tourists who walked by.
It was very entertaining.
And strange.

And that's how we encountered the World Famous Bushman.

Do you have any local legends in your town?
Have you ever seen the San Francisco Bush Man?

We have the dancing Little Cesar's cowboy. He stands on the street corner holding a little Cesar's sign, but this guy is so animated and happy that he's become a local legend. Cute post!
