San Francisco appears out of the fog, as seen from my kayak in Sausalito. The Spinnaker Restaurant is in the foreground, a great place for dinner during sunset, but make reservations early. My "Sue Lee Mysteries" start in San Franciso at the Presidio military post where a young code breaker Sue Lee Ono a graduate of Stanford University, discovers a murderous past continuing into the present after the death of her beloved Uncle Yoshi. It is interesting how the story character evolves, Uncle Yoshi, developed after we rented a houseboat in Sausalito. One of the artifacts in the boat was a happy Buddha statue on the deck that became the creation of Yoshi. Now the strange thing is all during the series. Uncle Yoshi is a dominant character, but he's dead. I did, however, bring him back to life in my book "Klondike Journal" that took place partly in the past. One more travel note about Sausalito, one of the best hotels is the "Inn Above Tide," It is right next to the ferry dock. Arriving in San Francisco by ferry is a treat. If you're not staying in Sausalito, there is pay parking at the ferry dock. Furthermore, you are right next to The Spinnaker Restaurant. D.M.
