Last month Hockey Boy and his choir traveled to San Francisco. They took a "master class" with a local vocal instructor and they performed a couple of times, but mostly they enjoyed seeing the wonderful sights of the beautiful city of San Francisco.
Despite my pleas to Hockey Boy to send me some pictures from his phone, I received only a couple from him, and I don't think any of them featured any people. Luckily one of the girls in his choir is my friend on Facebook, and she took lots of pictures and posted them there.
It looks like it was a very successful trip. Even Hockey Boy, who is a guy of notoriously few words, said he had a great time.
The choir had breakfast at the Hard Rock Cafe one morning
Hockey Boy (in the center in the plaid jacket) hurt his foot in a game the week before the San Francisco trip; he wore a boot for two weeks but is fine now
Hockey Boy's choir really enjoyed their tour of Alcatraz
This is one of the few pictures Hockey Boy sent me (the papier maché head used as a decoy during an escape)
Ever the great conversationalist...
Having fun near the Golden Gate Bridge
Hopefully he put his phone away and actually spoke to these pretty girls
The group took a day trip to the Muir Woods
Hockey Boy sent me this interesting little collage from the Muir Woods
They had a fun time at Ghiradelli Square one evening
The man in the green jacket came to hear the group perform at Pier 39. He had been a member of their choir in the 70's!
Far and away Hockey Boy's favorite part of the trip was their dinner cruise on the San Francisco Bay. The only souvenir he brought home with was these sunglasses!
Now here's a side of my son I never see!
Clearly the orthopedic boot didn't impede his dancing - LOL

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
