[quote=""Misfit""]I love old ships. I recall visiting a spot in San Francisco with some lovely old ships on display. Managed at that time by the National Park Service.[/quote]

I love me some tall ships. Do you mean Pier 40? I got to stay on one of them for a school field trip. And I like the Maritime Museum.

On the first book... what is that symbol in the sky? Some sort of dream thing?

I missed this. I think the shut down was 6-7 hours in the end? I missed the girl in the chair and I loathe her.

Oh, I can see that now. Sounds like some sort of spooky mystery.
