Friday, the 29th, we took the ferry ($6.50 each because we are old) to San Francisco, getting off at the Ferry Dock. We slowly walked from the Ferry Dock to Ghirardelli Square taking a few pictures along the way. This is Coit Tower, which we will see close up on a tour. We ate lunch at Pier 39, where we saw the sea lions and Forbes Island. I thought of Ken Miller when we saw this guy just playing away on this Hammer Dulcimer. As we walked along the various piers, I took this picture of Alcatraz Island. Then we ate a couple of free samples at Ghirardelli Square. As we left pier 41 on the ferry, I took this picture looking back at San Francisco. The fog was really rolling in as we left on the ferry. This is Alcatraz Island from the stern of the ferry, a little after 4pm.
Saturday, the 30th of March. We drove east on I-80 to Vacaville for a morning Sam’s Club run. Then it was WalMart where we shopped and ate Cheddar Onion Burgers at McDonald’s. After lunch we drove back to Fairfield for a tour of the Budweiser Brewery. Marilyn had a Shock Top, and I had a Black Crown. I will drink more of the Black Crown.
Easter Sunday, the 31st of March. We stayed home to celebrate Easter, as well as staying warm, since it is cool and has rained off and on. I did some more work organizing pictures so that I can put them on the Chapter 16 and 57 websites. Marilyn has been cooking. We will have another delicious Leg of Lamb meal, with a bottle of Champagne to celebrate Easter.
