We've just checked into the University Club at 800 Powell St, San Francisco. Driving here from Monte Rio was spectacular: started off in lush forest with stands of high redwoods, then emerged into a rolling, misty moorland that slouched into sea-cliffs washed by a grey surf. We stopped to take pictures of seals lounging on the rocks under a grey sky. When the road turned inland, we passed dairy farms, pasture and rocky outcrops in the moors before joining 101 South and gradually re-entering the classic California landscape: big road, bright blue sky and a tan and green hilly countryside as far as the eye can see. Drove over the Golden Gate Bridge and had a heck of a time parking and stopping on these absurdly angled SF streets.

After a delay and a luggage scare, the Whiffenpoofs have arrived safely in San Francisco. Today, we are driving to Carmel, Ca. to sing an evening concert at the Carmel Presbyterian Church. Tomorrow: The Grove.
