The sun finally decided to show himself today and....I had an Opera-free day - so inspired by Lo and Mim's blogs, I set off on a much-needed walk. I am lucky to live quite close to the Presidio - it is filled with many hiking trails and lovely vistas, the air is fragrant with Eucalyptus.
I had hoped to come across some animals so I would have an "Animal Wednesday" Post....but wouldn't you know, I didn't even see one bird I could come close enough to photograph (though I heard many....but they were in a camera-shy mood)! I was hoping on my way home to at least run into somone walking their dog....but alas....nope!
I did find these lovely lilac wildflowers to mark my way..
Many years ago, during an early morning hike, I did "meet" a Coyote in this very spot! Yes, in San Francisco! He was intent on watching something and when he finally noticed me, he nearly jumped out of his fur! Too bad I didn't carry a camera in those days....but I think of him and smile whenever I pass this spot!
I love this little brick bridge.... it had fallen into a state of disrepair the last time I was here - nice to see it has been lovingly restored.
Last....enroute home, I snapped this gorgeous flower in my neighbour's garden....it stands alone, like a Sentinel, watching over the rest of his flowers....does anyone know what it is?
I came home refreshed and re-engerised ..... it was a wonderful afternoon. Tomorrow...back to the Opera World for the next four days!
