Day 12 - Monday 3 August 2009 - San Francisco

Today was a chance to explore San Francisco. So much to see and so little time. You could spend two weeks here and still not see all the sights. Shopping in Union Square, a boat trip to Alcatraz, a catamaran bay cruise, riding the famous cable cars, walking up Lombard Street with it's twists and turns,or maybe a little culture at the Museum of Modern Art. San Francisco has something for everyone.

Tonight we had a meal at a seafood restaurant - Neptune's Palace - at Pier 39 on Fisherman's Wharf. The occasion was my 60th birthday! The evening was full of surprises. I had expected a card and everyone singing "Happy Birthday" but that was only the half of it! The group presented me with a framed photo of all of us standing outside EagleRider, a signed T-shirt and best of all a superb Harley Davidson pocket watch and chain, inscribed on the back with the message "Mr T Happy Birthday from your Route 66 family." And to round off the meal we had a huge birthday cake. I was completely overwhelmed by the occasion. Can't think of a better way to spend my 60th birthday or a better bunch of people to spend it with. This has been a day to treasure.
