Mill Valley, San Rafael, and Sausalito, Saturday, July 31, 2010

Ben came by this morning around 11:00 a.m. The fog was heavy earlier but as the morning went along the skies cleared for a beautiful day.

Ben drove us over to Mill Valley, another small quaint community near Sausalito. We walked around the city and had lunch in a small french bistro called “Champagne”. You’ll see a photo of today’s dessert—-dessert is something we always have with Ben. After lunch and more walking we drove over to San Rafael to visit the San Rafael Mission. There happened to be a “Jubilee Celebration” today. This event celebrated the long service of several nuns—one of whom had 80 years of service to the church. She was 102 years old!

After our walk around San Rafael, we came back to the RV Park for a rest. The weather is awesome—we are still wearing jeans but no jackets this afternoon.

For dinner we chose Scoma’s, a nice restaurant in Sausalito. We had a wonderful table right on the water and had great views of the bay with San Francisco in the background. Also we could see Alcatraz out in the middle of the bay. Lots and lots of sailboats and boats of every size were in the bay. After dinner we walked around Sausalito and had ice cream. There are so many people walking the streets here it’s hard to maneuver. But the views are spectacular and every direction you look there is something more beautiful.

Ben brought us back to the RV Park around 7:30 p.m. Tomorrow we will take the ferry from Sausalito to San Francisco and Ben will meet us at the pier. We’ll have lunch and then spend the afternoon looking around the city.

Oh, and Allan, take a look at the car—can you tell what it is?

Stay tuned. Bonnie

    We ate at Scomas when we were there. It is a great restaurant. Wish I was with you guys. My nephew has lived in both Petaluma and San Rafael.
