open for conversation and to pick up reunion packets.
The San Francisco tour
started early. We boarded busses to catch a ferry at
Vallejo that took us across the bay to Fisherman's Wharf.
There we were with with tour guides that pointed out places of interest
on the boat trip. At San Francisco we had a memorial
