Autumn 2014: Part 2

The ocean was still very calm on Thanksgiving day.

The beach was lightly peopled.

The guy on the right, below, who seems to be wearing camouflage, is actually wearing a jacket and pants made from cloth covered in pictures of cats. It's easy to love San Fransisco.


Just a few days later it started to rain and has been doing it a lot. This was after the rain on November 30.

This was dawn after rain on December 16.

Autumn 2014

We do get a few Autumn colors out here. This was on November 23.

It's unlikely that any of the trees with colored leaves are native to California.

These photos were shot in Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland CA.

The cemetery climbs a pretty steep hill. That is downtown Oakland in the distance.

The weather was unusually mild at San Francisco's Land's End, on Thanksgiving Eve.

The ocean was very calm.

It was beautiful.

New San Francisco

From time to time, Madame Le Chef and I take a walk along the Bay, south of the Baseball Park and next to the new UCSF campus. I've previously posted plenty of pictures from our rambles. The city currently has an insatiable demand for housing and a lot of construction is taking place in that area. San Francisco will remain a working port. (Please click.)

And there are still some large parking lots for the ballpark (here occupied by Cirque du Soleil).

They will certainly be filled in with housing. Construction is all around. In places they are building city blocks all at once.

Finished blocks are awaiting their residents.

The city is changing at a dizzying rate.
