San Francisco, CA

(Jan) We spent an awesome day with my brother, Ron, yesterday!! And an awesome evening with he, his wife Scarlett and their sons, John & Ryan!!  We met at their place in Pleasant Hill and then Ron, Chuck, Joanne and I headed into San Francisco to see the sites. We had a wonderful time playing tourist with Ron as our expert city guide. Ron has lived in SF and then across the bay for 30 years and certainly knows his way around the city. We crossed the Oakland Bay Bridge and founds our way down to Fisherman’s Wharf…..
