Peter and Florence and Debbie and I went to Buck’s. Peter told us that Buck’s serves the best steak in the city, too large to finish in a single sitting or by one person alone. Continue reading “Restaurant: Buck’s Fishing & Camping”

We went to San Lorenzo with Virginia and Tom at Tom’s suggestion.
