SF 2000, Day 4

Today’s travels took me across the famed Golden Gate Bridge (The Big Red One) to Marin County (turns out it’s pronounced mare-IN).

But first, we ate lunch at Joe’s Grill on Clement Street (though some people call it Bill’s Place) where I had a perfect bacon-BBQ-cheeseburger.

King, his wife Gwen and I went to Muir Woods, part of the California Parkssystem. The coastal redwoods there (“closely related to the sequoiahs”) are very old and extremely tall (sometimes as old as 2000 years and as high as 250 feet). We walked through the trailsfor a couple hours and then drove around more twisty roads, finally discovering an overlook that displayed the coastline alongside the rolling hills.

After returning to San Francisco, we rested and then went to the Red Vic Movie House (a small comfortable place on Haight St.) to see “Three Kings.” I was surprised by the movie (the previews made it look like a rehash of “Kelly’s Heroes”) & liked it.

Afterwards, strolling back to the car, we stopped by Amoeba Records, a former
bowling alley converted into a large music store (used & new CDs, LPs, videos) with an immense selection and excellent organization.
