Patti and I had made a plan to try and get at least one walk into our weekend. She has been busy with producing an ad this week. I had gone to Stockton for the anniversary of Phi Rho. So it made sense to pick Sunday. My open house was scheduled for 2 pm, so we met for breakfast at 7am in Sausalito. A tutti fruitti pancake... good carbs for the walk ahead.
This weekend has been exceptionally warm everywhere. But near the bay and ocean it was just about as perfect as you can get. The temperature was in the mid 70's. The breeze coming from the ocean was a welcoming indulgence. Today there were many boats on the bay enjoying the warmer weather. When you sail in SF bay you can almost always count on a chilling experience. But today would have been the kind of day where you could be in a tank top and shorts.
Crossing the GG Bridge we saw we would have to be careful of the Golden Gate Triathlon. I had totally forgotten this was going on. My hairdresser Janette was participating in it, and had told me about it this past week. Normally the east side of the bridge is almost exclusively walkers, but today there were a ton of bikes too. The west side of the bridge had been closed for just the triathlon.
We killed some time and added some steps in Golden Gate Park.
ON that note, for those of you coming to WINE WARS who do not drink wine... I promise to have some Marin brew for you, buzzless drinks too. The caterer just emailed me about her plans to spotlight those fine wines we will be featuring with appropriate food pairings. Be sure to let us know if you would like to come.
By the way, did you know this is a totem pole that marked the farthest south the Aleutian Indians traveled? Only a few of us do!
