(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…..

|Here we are at the Twin Peaks looking down at the city of SF & the Golden Gate Bridge.||Going steeply down hill to a busy SF intersection with a famed Cable Car crossing the street||Ron & Jan overlooking the Pacific Ocean|

We were greeted by Ron’s lovely wife Scarlett when we arrived back home. Also there to visit were my nephews John and Ryan. We enjoyed a delicious Tri-Tip dinner together, looked at photos and caught up on family news. We just feel so blessed to have had this day with them!
Tonight is our fourth night on the road and we are safe and warm at Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville, Oregon.
