Yesterday was warm, the sun was shining......my body *told* me get up, get out..enjoy this weather - because soon....the Winter Rains will arrive. So....I listened and obeyed. I walked along to Baker Beach ....the last time I was there, it was foggy and cool. If you look very closely, you will see (between the buoy and the shore) a faint figure on the horizon.... a large ship sailing enroute to the Bay.
Voila! Welcome to San Francisco!
It seems 3:00 p.m. is the *Golden Gate Waters Rush Hour* - because as I turned away from the Bridge, what did I see in the far distance...
Another tanker! Busy waters!
I was caught up in the hypnotic spell of the waves, crashing gently on the shore.....lost in daydreams, I found that an hour had elapsed!
Walking back through the Northernmost part of the Presidio, I came across some downed trees.....
And this sprinkling of silvery pine cones...
The arc of pine cones.....totally natural... the hanging branch, yet to completely fall... can't you imagine Red Riding Hood, dashing home to her Grandmothers?
It is a 2 hour hike (with no daydreaming) from my house to Baker Beach and back.....but of course, I was gone much longer and the sun was beginning to set.....I caught the last golden glow on this very red-orange Poppy.
And the last glowing rays, bidding this branch *Sweet Dreams*.
It was a good day.... being amid Nature helps..... I think of many wonderful friends, all across the World...and I send each of you my love, courage and strength.
