|We flew from Detroit to San Francisco this morning, and were in our hotel|
before noon local time. For the first two nights, we are staying near the
airport, which is right by San Francisco Bay.
|We sometimes enjoy the parking lot birds, such as these happy gulls.|
We walked around the area while waiting to meet our tour group at 6 PM.
|Best parking lot bird: a hummingbird.|
|We walked for an hour or so on the San Francisco Bay Trail -- this is a minuscule part of the 500 mile trail, which|
encircles the whole Bay. We could see Mount Diablo (we think) very far across the bay.
|The aroma of the dry vegetation really made me realize I'm in California.|
It has a unique smell, as well as a unique look.
