Glorious post-Turkey Day

http://sf.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/11/SFBayDock-thumb.jpg

The absolutely astounding weather we enjoyed through Thanksgiving day amazed all of our group of 11 who convened in SF from points south and east. After a day of feasting, we ventured out to take advantage of the diversion of the throngs towards the shopping malls to enjoy a ‘touristy’ traipse around the nature sights of the city.

A drive through GGPark and up through the Presidio found us at Chrissy Field, and the still, sunny weather motivated us to take a stroll down the gravel path towards the Warming Hut.

It was great to see the family clusters at the picnic stations along the route, but what I really appreciated seeing were the many people lining up on the extended boardwalk jutting out into the bay. Folks strolling, sunbathing and fishing in jeans and shortsleeves.

I often lament about missing the beauty of Fall in the Pacific Northwest, but on Friday, cruising around my new city, I revelled in the beauty of a sun-drenched post-holiday afternoon, and was very glad for it.

(of course, then came today, but that’s another post)

    You “drove” through GGPark? That’s like going to the pier and only smelling the delicious seafood instead of tasting it! :-)

    Driving-biking or even walking through the Presidio is so great. Man, and I love the Warming Hut. Strangely, it’s a great place to shop for kids. And the hot, grilled sandwiches are made with good ingredients.

    Tyler, our guests were near-octagenarians with heart stunts and titanium knees. Driving through GGP and the Presidio was the (only) way to go.
