After going up Mt Tam yesterday we headed for San Francisco, ate some delish Mexican food and then headed for a relatively unknown gem in the city. A mosaic staircase with great views out towards the ocean.
This was followed by a walk down on Ocean Beach to smell the beach fires (plus a few less legal smells), listen to crazy people play bongoes and generally feel miles away from the busy life back East.
As much as we are trying to hike and be generally healthy, we did not start all the way at the bottom on foot. There's a road to the top and then a pathway around the summit giving you awesome views of SF, Oakland and all the way up towards Napa.
A simple story of getting from Cambridge, MA to Larkspur, CA (our home for the next 7 weeks).
There are too many flavors of Class in the flying world (and I immediately think of this article).
There were 4 lines for the Business Class luggage dump at Logan, all different mishmashes of expensive metals combined with high ranking army officials … you are Platinum Field General so go in that line … Of course I had a run in with the passive aggressive guy in the powder blue United blazer. It made me feel a bit happier.
Everyone was well pissed that there was no wi-fi on the plane. You'd think they were infecting us with polio.
Chickola next to me was reading War and Peace - long flight ahead.
At SFO we collected our 5 bags and I headed for Fox Car Rental. No I had not heard of them either, but they gave us a deal on a car for 7 weeks.
Mr Taylor, I put you in Premium Car. To quote Anne, just because it's bigger doesn't make it Premium. It's still a Buick … with a wicked shimmy.
They closed the GG Bridge for the frist time in 77 years today. Nice. We'll go around.
Just as we pulled into the parking space at our temporary home the Patriots won. So that was nice ...
Also, our apartment complex is very green, and attracts tree frogs. Also nice.
