11 October 1944

Upon arising we discovered we were still at the dock in SF Bay. Also on board were about 600 WACs and about 350 Red Cross Workers. About 9 AM we pulled away, circled the Bay Bridge and headed for the Golden Gate which we went through while we were at chow. Everything is more or less confused as far as shipboard routine goes, but it will probably straighten out before long. A school of porpoises followed us outside the bay and a Navy blimp scoured the ocean in front of us staying with us until dark. The ship is completely blacked out at night which means that there is nothing to do after about 6:30. Latest rumor says our first stop will be Pearl Harbor.
