VALLEJO TO SAN FRANCISCO 19 KMS + FERRY 9.11.2016
Vallejo is a small town some miles away from Sonoma and I had got there well after dark. It was very difficult to find a hostel here so I stayed at a small Inn, after some turned me away thinking I was a tramp. The place was above my budget but I had no choice. I intended to take a ferry to SFO the following day from the Vallejo port.
The next morning it was no longer raining and the skies were clear and the ride on the ferry absolutely brilliant. I clung to the rails as we heaved past the Golden Gate bridge and sea gulls flew along, skimming over the waters.
The dockyard was busy but fresh and clean and I made my way to the nearest place to eat something. I also wanted to pick up a bottle of wine for Aunt Gloria and John Uncle whose home I was going to stay at in Alameda. I chose to go to an original Italian delicatessen called Molinari. It was a classic place and I loved the sandwich I ate there. Very authentic. After picking up a bottle of wine I made my way to the dockyards again with Quest to take the ferry to Oakland. It had been a beautiful day and I looked forward to spending the time with the Nolans.
