SF Missed appointment, Walk, Asian Museum and some fans

USA Day 3 – Missed Appointment, Walk, Asian Museum (and a couple of little boats) and meeting some fans

Slideshow of pics is at the bottom of this page.

I was supposed to meet David Luckhardt to go to the River Heritage Fair. I blew it – I woke up when I was supposed to be at the station. Not just my station, but the one over the other side of the river – eeeeeeek!

So a phonecall including abject apologies and then I had to plan the day.

Breakfast at hotel … then I decided to go to the San Francisco Asian Art Museum. So walking walking again. Got a Lemon Green Tea with Tapioca Pearls so had to walk through chinatown to get it … of course

Even the cardboard recycling trucks are cute.

I had chosen a route that went over the tallest part of the city … sigh (puff puff). But still good things to see. A trolley car is pulled by a cable under the road. I don’t understand why it doesn’t have a problem with friction.

There are some strange entries to houses. What do they do if it rains?

What do you think this church is made of (it is the first Baptist Church built in S.F.) Talked to a nice woman on the corner.

It is wood .. being repaired.

This one is just down the road from Little Saigon where I had lunch and met my fans.

In the museum, Buddhas hands.

“come on sweetie, Look at me … I didn’t mean it”

Need some boats, yes? Small details from some Japanese woodblock prints

And finally a clip .. I don’t know if it will embed.


Oh and the fans???? They were in the Vietnamese Restaurant I had lunch at – the Tamerind.

On the "round Australia trip" I found myself employed by a tiny business in Adelaide - Duck Flat Wooden Boats in Adelaide. It was an eye opener - It became clear that one could build a boat for a fraction of the cost of current racing boats. My ideas hinged around high performance, easy building, fun to sail and reasonably cheap Today Storer Boats are built in all countries and we have active groups on Facebook for the following groups Goat Island Skiff Open Goose Storer Boat plans Really Simple Sails
