Sunrise 7:12: Feast in San Francisco



Today is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. It's also the female Dawn Jogger's birthday,and she's in San Francisco. If not for the reason for the City stay - more tests and meetings with the male DJ's doctors - it would have been one of the most spectacular birthday dawns ever. From their hotel, she headed east on Mission and then south on the Embarcadero past the ballpark. She turned around at McCovey point just as the clouds took on a bright pink glow, the perfect backdrop for statue of the great slugger. Heading back to hotel, the sun finally made its appearance with the Bay Bridge in the foreground. It was the kind of morning that makes jogging at dawn worth it...

Hey, Linda, Happy Birthday !

As properly directed by your ever-thoughtful spouse, I've caught up on your blog. Lovely photos (some credit to what's rubbed off from Chris). I can see you live in a lovely neighborhood and enjoy it. More power to both of you.

What is to be built at the closed path?

Best wishes --

Greg Bird

Is that Hank Aaron ? I'm from London, so I'm making a guess.
Fingers are crossed for Chris.
