Sherry and I did some more geocaching and went into town and had lunch and did some shopping. We have such a special connection and our talks are so good.

The Castro is the gay district of San Francisco, and Leanne had heard that naken men walked around this neighbourhood. Lisa had heard no such thing, and then about 10 mins later after getting a coffee and sitting down outside in the sun, there they were! 2 naked men just sat at a table chatting, like ...
