San Francisco Trip - First Few Days

Day 1| Lots to do on the first day #sanfrancisco #cablecars #gracecathedral #fairmont #limbardst #aquarium on bay #fishermanswharf #Pier39 #ghirardellisquare. Lots of walking but it was a great day.

Day 2| Golden Gate Bridge and Muir Woods - a return trip after many years. #muirwoods #goldengatebridge #mdwblogspot

Day 3| Sonoma / Napa Valley.  What a difference in temp between SF (16•Celsius) vs Sonoma and Napa’s 30•Celsius). Beautiful and scenic drive.  There was a wine tasting train you can take too.

Clemente Decepida

Loving memory of my oldest brother Clemente Marie Decepida born June 27, 1956.  passed away this day Dec 2, 1995.  Missing him.  He took me to musicals and ballets.  The  ballet I ever watched was the Nutcracker.. I think that's his love - he usually jets to New York and visit my brother and Sister-in law, Armie at Queens. He takes on some show while he's there.
