Day 23, Will arrives in San Francisco from Shanghai, China, April 26th

46.7 miles today, 4,415.1 miles total

What a day of celebration! Our son, Will, has come from China to RV travel with us for 2 weeks down the California coast & beyond!!! We picked him up at the San Francisco International Airport this morning and spent the day discovering San Francisco after parking Thumper at Pier 43 at Fisherman’s Wharf. We walked for miles exploring, eating fish, shrimp, clams, & Ghirardelli chocolate. We walked by Lombard Street (famous for having a steep, one-block section that consists of eight tight hairpin turns), Knob Hill, Chinatown, Little Italy, & the street cars. We toured Hyde Street Pier, part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, where various historical ships are anchored to the pier. Among the ships on display is the Balclutha, an 1886 square rigged sailing ship.  We returned to Pacifica to our San Francisco RV home, got a Mexican dinner and settled in for the night. Today, we had a blast, m, b, w  & t

“On the green they watched their sons
Playing till too dark to see,
As their fathers watched them once,
As my father once watched me.”– Edmund Blunden

God took the beauty of the Bay of Naples, the Valley of the Nile, the Swiss Alps, the Hudson River Valley, rolled them into one and made San Francisco Bay. (Fiorello La Guardia)

You wouldn’t think such a place as San Francisco could exist.  The wonderful sunlight here, the hills, the great bridges, the Pacific at your shoes.  Beautiful Chinatown.  Every race in the world.  The sardine fleets sailing out.  The little cable-cars whizzing down The City hills….And all the people are open and friendly.  (Dylan Thomas)
