March 28, 1964 - flanked by my Good Hope and St. Francis Xavier's classmates, President Liner Wilson in the background.


The journey started with a morning walk through the open gate by the Star House, along the trolley track to the first pier where my ship was anchored.   I showed my ticket to a dock worker, and he took over my luggage.  To enter the ship, I walked up some stairs and next a gangplank (thankfully it has handrails and side barriers).  Up there, after showing my ticket to a ship crew, I looked for my cabin.
