Friday in Orinda, CA





We picked up the Pathfinder and then drove to the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez. This was the home of John Muir, the early conservationalist who was instrumental in founding the national park system. Then we drove to the Muir Woods in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area north of San Francisco. We walked though the pathways through a grove of primordial redwood trees. Then we had a beer sampler at the Broken Drum brewpub in San Rafael. After that we visited the Rosie the Riviter National Historic Park. This was where Henry J. Kaiser built freedom ships during World War II. That night we went to a Mexican food restaurant with David and Lorna.
