Now THIS is winter...
What a beautiful Sunday. Not a cloud in the sky. Temperatures in the mid sixties. Simply the perfect San Francisco winter day.
I started the day with a morning drive to Fort Funston, which sits atop ice plant-covered cliffs that overlook the Pacific Ocean. (If you look closely at the second photo, you can also make out the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge...not a shabby panoramic vista!) The bluffs are dotted with old artillery batteries, and on windy afternoons, Fort Funston is a magnet for hang gliders. But in the quiet peace of early morning, unleashed dogs and their walkers are in charge.
In the afternoon, Jeff and I ran errands in Marin County, and stopped on our way back home to view the City and the Golden Gate Bridge in the warm afternoon sun. The bridge was brilliant against a crystal clear blue sky.
