Welcome to the thoughts that wash up on the sandy beaches on my mind. Paddling is encouraged.. but watch out for the sharks.
South San Francisco kind of looks like that, over near the bay...
I spent a lot of time there - Liverpool rather than San Francisco - in my youth, wandering around the port/docks with my father. We saw, and went onboard, some amazing ships over the years... including (if memory serves) an aircraft carrier which was cool.
Actually after 2 minutes research I discovered what ship it was and when it was there: HMS Centaur on 13th August 1965 on her way to being decommissioned. For some reason I thought we'd been on one of the Ark Royal's. I guess ALL aircraft carriers seem like that to a 5 year old! [grin]
it's great you can still remember that!
As with most childhood memories I don't know if they're 'real' or confabulations. I seem to remember being on a ship with a huge (to a small child) expanse of flat deck and I also have a memory of going down on a huge lift inside the ship with lots of other people.... But that might have been layered on later after watching movies! [grin]
