This was one of the first activities George and Tetsuko did as a newly wed couple. After only going on three dates before getting married everything was new in the relationship. They both found a love for going on excursions to the city, and this was their first fun activity together.

“Tetsuko hurry up, I want to get on the road!” George shouted.

“Coming!” she rushed down the stairs fixing her pink sundress and putting on her white shoes.

She ran outside and saw George waiting on the side of the car, holding the door open for her.

She admired the way he drove relaxed, with the radio cranked low, savoring the 2 hour drive into the city, with all the windows down and sunroof off. Tetsuko looked forward to the weekends spending time with her new husband and to explore San Francisco.

Today, George took her to Ghirardelli Square, where they went peeping into the little shops, and looking at the iconic Ghirardelli sparkling sign that hung up above the factory building. They went into the store and shared a sundae overflowing with chocolate and topped with a mountain of whipped cream. He then took her to Fisherman's Wharf where she saw swarms of tourists flooding the already crowded pier. Vendors stopped along the sidewalk trying to sell little toys and flashing gimmicks. She enjoyed the excitement and laid back culture of San Francisco, and the bay water breeze that tickled her cheek.

“Why is there an island with large white buildings over there?” Tetsuko questioned.

“Oh, that is Alcatraz Island, where they use to house the worst criminals, and over to the left you can see the Golden Gate bridge in the distance. Maybe we’ll go next week!”

“I’d love that!”

From the edge of the pier she had the whole view and the gorgeous city, taking in her new life, with a new husband and new city. Going to San Francisco became a weekend tradition, he enjoyed the long drive and she loved the new city.
