Three days after arriving in Hemet, we were on the road again. We headed towards San Francisco to meet up with Tom & Denise at the fabulous Fairmont Heritage Place at Ghirardelli Square. This is THE most prestigious Executive Resort in San Francisco. At one time it was a world famous chocolate factory but it's been …
