This is Francis. He has just turned 18 years old.
Friday the 24th, his sister Florence, her boyfriend Tim, and I went to Fisherman's Wharf to celebrate. Here are Florence and Tim.
We all got into the car and Tim drove us into San Francisco.
We parked right next to a tobacconist so the first thing Francis did was to purchase a cigar...now that he's legal and all, he can do it. He was very excited to be carded.
He was very proud of his legally attained cigar and held it in his hand at all times, even when he growled at a bread alligator at Boudin's.
Francis and I got passionfruit flavored taffy!
We stopped by store that sold pirate themed merchandise. If you lost your hearing over the weekend, it's because right after this picture was taken, Tim jumped out from behind the pirate statue and made me scream.
At Johnny Rockets, they gave Francis a whole bunch of balloons. He was very happy about this!
But the night had to end...so after dinner we all piled into the car and said goodbye to Fisherman's Wharf.
This is what San Francisco looks like when you're driving past really quickly.
