It has now been a few days in San Francisco and I'm adjusting to the cool weather and different life!
I interviewed a bunch of people at the museum and today I had the day off, but I'm working all weekend!
Today Kate and I hiked a bit of the Coastal Trail in Lincoln Park. It was very dramatic and a beautiful view of the GG Bridge, the sea, and tankers coming in and out of the bay. Until the early 20th century a train ran where the trail is now, leading to baths and a hotel. The train kept derailing and the track eroding, so they stopped service. We took the remnants of the 1 California street car (actually bus) to the park to begin with.
After our little hike, I went out to Newark to see the house that Brentan and I are buying. It sure is a fixer-upper! Notice the blue tarp on the roof? Yeah, the roof needs some fixing. And there is some termite damage....
After looking at the house I came back into the city, did some shopping, and went to this amazing book store, called Green Apple Books, which is a block from where I am staying! It is one of the better bookstores in the city (as touted by my NFT San Francisco book), and I traded my recently finished "In Defense of Food" for Madame Bovary.
Tomorrow I'm going to the famous Ferry Plaza farmer's market! Oh I think I love being in this new West Coast culture.
But I have to give a shout out to my Boston people, who I miss so much! Especially since they are going camping/having a BBQ this weekend and I'm not going to be there!!
