“Row row row your boat…”

Macella Platt is driving the school bus to Santa Rosa Airport. The bus makes it’s way over the Golden Gate Bridge before entering a tunnel with a rainbow painted above the archway.

The Waldo Tunnel is at the top of the Waldo Grade north of San Francisco. There is no pedestrian access to the tunnel but there is a good, if somewhat distant, view of the Waldo Tunnel from the Marin Headlands. The picture below was taken looking north from Battery Spencer where Harry found Ann Mary Deacon.
