Updates and photos
This morning I read a message saying that a 9am meeting for January 20 was cancelled. I didn’t make the connection that January 20th is today until I dialed into the conference bridge and nobody was there. Time flies, I guess. The end of the year is always busy and usually involves a bunch of travel for me. It takes some time to get back on track. I’ve been posting some photos over the last few weeks.
A trip to Big Basin Redwoods State Park late last year reminded me that the drive there is entirely worth it. It’s so very quiet and .. woodsy.
I had never noticed raptors in Fort Funston before. I didn’t see this one until I was browsing through the photos when I got home. This is a tiny crop of a 100mm snapshot of the Golden Gate bridge shot from one of the paths in Fort Funston.
I headed out at around 1:30am early last Sunday morning, picked up my friend, and drove to the end of Embarcadero in Palo Alto with a clear Northern view over the bay. I wanted to see Stardust‘s re-entry. Sadly, while we saw some lovely airplanes, neither one of us saw Stardust’s re-entry. North from Palo Alto, across the bay, is: Oakland and Berekely. They sure are bright.
2:00am is a good time to commute, though — there’s not much traffic.
