A day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium with friends... whirlwind-y, but fun.

The clouds slid overhead like a flannel blanket making the whole world a bit gray and winterish. Made me long for those long, cold wintry days in ND or NH. Something seems a bit off being able to hang laundry and have it dry in a hour in November. I miss snow.

Sitting by the fire tonight. There's something to be said about the saying that cutting your own wood warms you three times over -- we weren't cold all day!

Ancient, yet young.

We spent the day in SF yesterday -- with a tour of the KQED TV and Radio Studios and then off to Golden Gate Park to do a quick tour of the Primitive Garden with friends.

New things learned:

· Suspension of Disbelief is everything in TV.
· KQED is the most-listened-to public radio station in the nation. Including us -- it's the default on our station along with KAZU (Monterey's station).
· 10-15 kids CAN be deadly quiet for 60 seconds while in the Master Control Room while Matt Elmore makes the sponsor announcements during a Talk of the Nation break.
· Golden Gate Park was once sand dunes. They tamed it by judicial planting of Monterey Cypress, Monterey Pine & Eucalyptus.
· Gingko is actually a conifer, though it looks like a broad leaf tree!

We need to explore SF more! I'm always longing for more time there, but so glad we have many reasons to come back!

I'm not quite sure how I'll go about these daily postings, but since it's November, how about some photos and bits of gratitude.

A beautiful morning here with fog rolling over the hills, but blue sky above. The sunshine was warm out back... perfect for hanging out on the hammock with my little guy and our big lug, Fargo.
