    Pricey by the standard of most North American cities, but reasonable compared to other offerings in SF's central areas. Simple, clean, and comfortable, some may be put off by the location near strip clubs. Safety didn't seem to be an issue as the streets were busy late into the night. Location is great for dining with all of Chinatown's culinary delights all around, and Little Italy a short walk away. The hotel is very strict with breakfast - we arrived at the breakfast room five minutes before breakfast was scheduled to end, only to find the door locked as we were told that it was too late to eat.

    ... next destination which was the Redwood Forest. The biggest trees in the world. They where massive. They where pretty. Lots of carvings on the trees. I liked it a lot.

    San Fransisco was pretty good. We had good seafood dinner. It wasn't as good as Washington DC and New York but they where so good that we now know it wasn't that bad.

    So today started at 0700 with our tour guide, Jeff, picking us up from our Hotel. It is quite a drive out to Yosemite National Park - about three hours worth. Once we arrived there was plenty of great scenery to look at and, as we went further into the Park, the scenery just kept unfolding in front of us. There had been some snow fall the night before, which left a really good dusting of white around the place. So we have now had snow in the east in NYC and ...

    ... concrete recreation area, a dining hall and a library. The noise and the smell must have been horrendous. The audio tour is narrated by men who were guards and some of the ex prisoners. There are other exhibitions and a film theatre showing films of life there when it was a prison and a military prison, and also about the period when it was held by Native Americans in protest about the closure of Indian Reservations. There are also art exhibits ...

    Our flight to San Francisco was not a smooth one. We arrived at the airport about 10:30, checked our bags, got through security quickly and got to the gate by 11. Boarding was to begin by 11:30 but alas that was not to be. The captain came to the check in desk and told us that there was a mechanical problem and the mechanics were working on it and hopefully we would get out by 1:00 PM. Luckily there is free WIFI ...

    We were surprised to see strawberry farms very close to Marina town which is built on sand dunes. There were dozens of pickers (probably Mexican ) in the fields with porta loos on trucks - perhaps they have no time for long breaks?

    Our first stop was the Santa Cruz campus of the University of California. At the entrance to the campus is the Cowell Lime Works, which established in the 1850s was a manufacturing ...
