Friday, the 29th, we took the ferry ($6.50 each because we are old) to San Francisco, getting off at the Ferry Dock. IMG_20130329_110309_022  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.  IMG_20130329_112930_468  We ate lunch at Pier 39, where we saw the sea lions and Forbes Island.

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.  IMG_20130330_150440_633

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.
