Promises Kept

Almost there... and pretty happy about it, by the looks of things!

Almost there… and Auriel is pretty happy about it, by the looks of things!

In 1965, the ship on which Brynmor (Rich’s Dad) was working docked at San Francisco. When he got home to the UK, Brynmor promised his bride to be, Auriel (Rich’s Mum),  that one day he’d take her there. I’m proud to say that last week I helped keep that promise, 48 years after it was made.

Unlike me, Auriel wasn't happy riding a cable car on the outside (see my blog from June 8th)
