Well, so far, things are going pretty good (at least from my perspective). My dad has had some disappointments -- he wanted to take the ferry to Alcatraz, but my mom doesn't like boats, so that got nixed. He also had a supreme bug up his butt to ride the "go car", but he couldn't get the whole family behind him. We could have bifurcated, and he and I gone and done it, but I guess that need for family separation hasn't crept in yet. If we go back to the city later in the week, then this will probably have to happen.
Anyways, we had lunch at the Buena Vista, where the Irish Coffee was invented (apparently -- my dad couldn't quit talking about it). And of course we saw the Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate bridge, the Presidio, and Noe Valley. We picked the latter neighborhood, so that we could have dinner at a nice Italian restaurant with Stan.
