Well, dear Sir Francis, I owe an apology
For years I've been calling you Don Quixote.
Facing down that brick kiln giant
You're a familiar icon for folks on Ferry.
So now I will go and relabel my pictures
But for the nonce I must admit some surprise
That I would be first to waymark this fellow
Observed there daily by thousands of eyes.
He's quite a sculpture...
quoting marinnostalgia.org/patton.html: "Dennis Patton fashioned this [30-foot] Sir Francis Drake out of metal in 1990, and the rusty old sea-dog has been guarding the entrance to the Larkspur Ferry Terminal ever since."
Take a picture of the sculpture and describe your visit -- come on, you don't have to wax poetic, but give us more than a 'saw it, thanks.'
You must have visited the site in person, not online.
