November 9

I was only in San Fran for 26 hours, but managed to cram in quite a bit. We did the 49 mile scenic tour, which took us to parts of the city we'd never seen. We visited the de Young Art Museum, and of course the various piers. The highlight occurred on Saturday night: walking down Green Street near our North Beach hotel, we stopped outside Club Fugazi, wondering why crowds were gathering. A young woman asked us if we would like free tickets to the show about to start. She had four, but two of her friends couldn't make it. We had no idea what we were in for, but gladly accepted in a spirit of adventure. What followed was two hours of laughter as we experienced the long-running (35 years!) San Francisco institution Beach Blanket Babylon from the front row. What a great night.

I drove home on Sunday but left Rhea up there for another 24 hours to have some solo adventures, including the Alcatraz tour. She returned tonight by air, with a fully loaded camera and a big smile.

We love San Fran!
