I am Susan E. Brown, a native of San Francisco and the daughter of Former Mayor, Willie L. Brown Jr. All my life, I have had the rare and unique opportunity to travel to wonderful places and meet fascinating people and I want to share the benefits of that experience with you.
Beyond the Fog was inspired when a friend of my father’s wanted to go alone with his date to Alcatraz at Night. My father assigned that project to me and after a few weeks of research we finally did it!
As the last public boat was coming in, my father’s friend and his date were waiting on the dock with the Park Ranger. Once the boat was empty they boarded to enjoy the wine and cheese I pre-arranged for them and off they went to Alcatraz. They had a three-hour tour led by the park ranger at night on Alcatraz all by themselves!
I have since secured commitments from San Francisco’s cultural institutions, as well as many other beautiful, iconic places in San Francisco, to share with you!
