Sunny day in SF

Category : travel

Took the BART to Balboa Park; took about an hour with one transfer from the time I left the Y in Berkeley. Spent it reading "georeferencing for dummies". Hope to travel to Balboa Park on Thursday evening to meet Vancouver Su and SF Mel. Should be faster without the need for a transfer.

Walked with M&K - they say it was a rare day to see the Golden Gate Bridge clearly. The apparently unusual number of people on the beach attest to the good weather as well. And, I suppose, the fact I was perspiring even without my jacket. Sigh and me without berms!

Finally saw the place where YCC got my tin mug from some years ago.

Detouring through the Palace of Fine Arts, we were distracted by bird life enjoying a bath in the pond and displaying to each other. And saw a gull scratch its ear like some onery dog. Or cat!

The Palace of Fine Arts is where (Wikipedia clues me in) "FBI agent Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage) finally catches up with John Mason (Sean Connery)" who meets up his daughter for a brief moment.

Finally solved that curiosity; had wondered what sort of fantastic campus that was!

US cities through movie associations - enough for me to find some US cities familiar last Sept; e.g. I, Robot an Chicago, mainly due to the scene of Will Smith running in the opening scene under the "Y".

And I bought slippers! When I got back to Berkeley, Tully's staff confirmed it was their company that had bought over the Spinelli's chain, blends and recipes. And it is indeed like Spinelli's in Singapore.
