... ordered clam chowder in a sour dough bowl. Yummy! Doug ordered a beef sandwich on a sour dough bun. The meat and fixings were good but the bun was very hard and Doug had a hard time chewing through it. We were thinking of Mother, and knowing she would not have been able to eat the bun at all. We browsed through a couple of souvenir shops but found nothing we couldn't live without. We continued through the wharf and then made our way to the starting point for the Powell ...
... probably being stiff from the drive, Dick played a pretty good round of golf. He said it was just beautiful out there.
And, I went for a 4+ mile walk down by Cannery Row with Mel. Saw some familiar sights: marina, Fisherman's Wharf, and Wharf #2. No fog, just beautiful weather!

The bulls are quite territorial and therefore there is one male to many women!! Tsk tsk!. There were ...
... breakfast at a gas station (probably not the wisest idea but whatever) and then heading back to San Francisco where had to drop off Alex and Tobi, leaving just me and Felicity to complete the last part of the trip.... From 7 down to 2! The last section was Redwood National Park. Again went up Highway 1 but the drive was pretty long (about another 8 hours), only stopping for coffee and toilet breaks. Picked up a couple of fairly trampy hitchers along the way but they were ...
