A few San Francisco picts. - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
A few San Francisco picts.
These were taken about an hour apart (click for bigger):

On the first one, you can see the fog just starting to move in over the hills. I thought it was just an isolated bit of scud - I had no clue the weather could go down that fast. Gotta love the marine layer...

Pacific weather is just strange - at least to an East-Coast-born-and-raised person like me. when my son was going to grad school in Palo Alto, and living in Sunnyvale, i went to visit him. one of the things i wanted to do while i was out there was to at least wet my feet in the Pacific Ocean. so we drove down to Santa Cruz. in Sunnyvale, the weather was sunny and hot, and my son put the top down on his convertible. but you have to cross a small but rather steep mountain range (i don't remember, and can't find, the name of the mountains) to get to the coast. as we went up the mountains, it began to get chillier. and then i saw something very, very weird; orographic clouds were building up on the other side of the mountain range, and beginning to curl over the top, like slowly breaking waves.

it was actually kind of pretty to see... and then we found ourselves inside the clouds. my son put the top back up, and i began to regret having worn a short-sleeved shirt. when we got to Santa Cruz, it was overcast and still a bit chilly, although there were plenty of die-hard Californians swimming and surfing. i took off my Birkenstocks, rolled up my pants legs, and trooped across the sand to the water. yes, i did wet my feet in the Pacific - it was cold!

Yay fog! It's that time of year now where every mornng I awake to get ready for work and it's pea soup. This means more ships blowing their horns in the middle of the night (I have lived in San Pedro 6 years and I have never stopped loving that sound) coming in and out of the harbor. I love the fog. It's like a lover, slipping in and out of the night and into the morning. Living next to the sea is like living in some weird form of heaven.

I'd be glad to go back with you. I found so many cool new places this trip that I didn't have time to see....
