These are the last of the picture from the family reunion trip. On Thursday we leave for Dianne's 40th class reunion, and the next post will probably be of that trip.

After the reunion Josie, Charlie, and Jon went to San Francisco with us. After checking into the motel we went to the Fisherman's Wharf area for dinner.

I must have an old car magnet because the garage where we parked had several old Studebakers in it. The pictures of the cars are at the end of the post.

This old fire engine gives tours. At least Jon and I liked looking it over.
After dinner we went to ride the cable car from Fisherman' Wharf to the Union Square area and back. There was a long line waiting to ride, giving us some photo time.

This guy was entertaining the line with his very beat-up resonator guitar. His bicycle was locked on the other side of the tree.
We finally boarded. Charlie and I road standing and hanging on.

We got off where the cars turn around.
Just an SF street picture. Yes, I'm standing in the street with a cable car coming.
The next morning we got up and had breakfast at Mel's. Jon is holding a cardboard car that his breakfast came in. In another post in the future you will see more of these cars (a gift from the Andersens).

Well, if you didn't stop reading when you hit the cars: See I told you I was an old car magnet!

Last posting I promised that the next post would have pictures of the family reunion, and it does, after pictures of Dianne's flowers.

Time Magazine said that the average elephant's eye is 8 feet off the ground. Well, Dianne's sunflowers topped that by a couple of feet.

Now, the reunion.

Dianne planned the decorations a long time before the reunion. This included getting the pictures and figuring out how to make the room festive while not violating Asilomar's restrictions.

The trip to the Monterey Aquarium was fun, but there was one more person going than seats in the cars. Now, I would never violate seat belts laws, but I can't help it if a stowaway managed to get in the car!
I will count on others to provide pictures of the Aquarium.

These are pictures for the bike ride that Josie, Charlie, Dianne and I took.

On the ride we stopped where a group of seals were sunning themselves.
For the time we were there this baby stayed outside the group.
These deer were in someone's yard.
Byron flying a kite, and me watching. He let my try. It's a lot harder than it looks.

While Byron was kite flying Jon was playing in the sand.
Dianne was playing also.
The three kids got to ring the lunch bell.

I love the "do not enter" in next to the group, but I haven't figured out what it signifies.

Katy (I think this is the spelling)
A couple of group shots.

Baxter got a violin lesson.

Royalty and subject.
I love this shot of both people.

Royal couple

Great grand parents and their great grand kids.
