During my June visit to the San Francisco Bay Area, I visited a number of placs that were meaningful to me from the years when I lived there. I was able to visit many, but not all, during the visit. Here are their URL's, along with a bit of commentary on them. I hope you enjoy!
PACIFIC SCHOOL OF RELIGION (PSR): http://www.psr.edu/
The scenes & buildings are all on the quad, the main area of the campus at the top of Scenic Avenue on Northside.
NEWMAN HALL / HOLY SPIRIT PARISH: http://www.calnewman.org/index.html
Unfortunately, the website is extremely devoid of photographs, something I don’t understand and find highly regrettable. Here is a link to 3 “photo galleries” of “Life at Newman” that people have put together: http://picasaweb.google.com/calnewman
