This past January we visited Patty's brother in Manzanillo, Mexico. On the front end of our vacation we took a side trip to visit my son in the SF Bay Area. I shot too many photos for one slide show, so this page is my answer to sharing my experience. Please resize this window as large as possible and then click on the slideshows below. There are also maps and travelogues.
