Bob Darden came in and took me to lunch at the Brown Derby. Had such fun with him – then he took me to the boat. Lots of people there to see us off, but I scarcely got to see them. Wonderful time leaving – Hawaiian music and streamers and excitement. Had champagne cocktails with Mr. Fleishman then dinner and to bed.

Docked about 3:00. We went in town and bought tickets and went to the Top of the Mark Hopkins for cocktails. Met Mr. Fleishman and he took us to dinner at the St. Francis. Then Esther and I went to the show “Anna Christie” with Ingrid BergmanIngrid Bergman was actually not in 'Anna Christie'. It starred Greta Garbo in her first English-speaking 'talkie'. . Very good.

Slept late and had lunch on the boat. Went into town and went on a sight seeing tour – Oakland, Berkley and Piedmont. Met some nice people on the bus. Came back to the ship for supper and then went to the War Memorial Auditorium for the Russian Ballet and it was marvelous!
August 6, San Francisco and sailing, fair and foggy later

Went into town after lunch and did some shopping at I. Magnin and (?) Bros. Came back to the boat and sailed around 5:00. Had champagne cocktail with Esther and then supper and what with the fog and rough sailing, I didn’t feel too good. Went to the movie and to bed.
