Linda outside the Ferry Building looking at Treasure
Island and the Bay Bridge
On Monday, June 5 I rode BART from San Francisco to Oakland and returned to Johnny's repair shop. We worked all day on the car, but unfortunately did not make much progress. I ordered some additional parts for Johnny and asked him what time he wanted me back in the morning to help. Johnny said that I should take the day off and relax and that he would work on the car on Tuesday.
On Tuesday Linda and I decided to play the tourists in San Francisco. Both of us had grown up in the Bay Area, but the funny thing about growing up in a place is you never do the touristy things. On Tuesday we took the Muni to the Embarcadero Building and then a streetcar to fisherman's wharf. We were determined to play tourists.

"Will we ever get out of here?"
Finally, after returning to the Embarcadero Station by Streetcar, we came across a plaque dedicated to a distant relative. On Wednesday, I would return to Johnny's....
