Day 35: Land's End

Land's End, San Francisco, CA, 5:30pm-7pm (Nov 4)
warm, summery, smattering of clouds

Tonight I saw an indescribably beautiful sunset over mouth of the San Francisco Bay. Clouds, mountains and water conspired to envelope the world in a blossoming of color.

It's one of my favorite places in the whole world: we are perched on a steep cliff overlooking a desolate beach, three tiny surfers perilously close to the rocks. The Marin headlands and Mt. Tamalpais are opposite us, the Golden Gate Bridge to my right.

My beloved sister at my side, as we alternate between raucous laughter and quiet contemplation. Life doesn't get much better!

Birds here seem much bigger and less skittish. Maybe the good weather makes friendlier birds as well as humans!
