Saturday, April 27, 1963

Up early. Ralph seems to feel better after his taking that hot bath last night.
Every one up now and have eaten. The weather looks good – bright skies if a little windy.

We are getting ready to go – left here around 11:00 am. It is a very bright sunny warm day for a change – so we went the long way to San Francisco.


Saw all the bridges and Old Alcatraz which is now empty they say. Rode around San Francisco and saw a lovely city. Saw the Pacific Ocean and then to the Wharf at 5:00 pm.

To Alioto’s to eat – a big meal about as usual – nothing different. We could not get seats near the bay – so we had to be content to watch the boats come in from afar then later parked and Ralph stayed in the car while the rest of us went through Chinatown. Quite a sight.

I went into Old St. Mary’s Church there – Gretchen came in too. Then sleepily winded our way home – made good time too. Had tea and to bed – but not to sleep – too upset – after what I read today about cancer. Well it has to be faced I guess – but I’m not good at it.
