    It was a really nice day in the SF bay area so the family packed up and went into Sodom and Gommora (SF) for the day. Despite its' politics, San Francisco is simply beautiful. So, we hit Pier 39 first, then Fisherman's Wharf. After a good seafood lunch, we went down to the pier to take the USS Pampanito (http://www.maritime.org/pamphome.htm) This WW2 submarine is docked just in front of the USS Jeremiah O'Brien, a WW2 Liberty Ship (http://www.ssjeremiahobrien.com) It just sends shivers down my spine to be in that sub which is exactly as it was in 1943. It's hard not to tear up when you think of the sacrifices of the greatest generation. Both my Dad and the Father-in-law are vets, Dad from Korea and Dad-in-law from WW2 and Korea. I have nothing but the utmost respect for those that answered the call then, and still do. Here are some pics:

    Actually, if you take off the title,:haha: its a really cool place, you could live a lifetime there nad never run out of things to do. And when you run out of money you can always scream *fagot!* out the car window like we did for a good hour or so:haha: at people

    The problem with that is when you say that ,,,EVERYONE looks :haha: j/k

    San Fransisco is prety neat. I was there a couple years ago and honestly didnt see anything that upset my masculinity. Its colder than **** though! I was there in July and it was like 50 ****ing degrees with a 100 mph wind from the north.

    We have the USS Lexington down in Corpus Christi. Its badass, all the planes and whatnot are neat.

    Unbelievably it was about 72 degrees Sunday. The skies were fairly clear too.

    SF is a great city. The Museum of Natural History is excellent.
