Home again

Ahh, home again.  It was rather a long journey, but Sarah & I are glad to be back in San Francisco with our kitties after three weeks abroad.  Of course I have much to post from our trip to Patagonia and Buenos Aires, but for the time being, I offer in no particular order and with little commentary, the following images that I’ve quickly processed from the 1700+ photos I took on our trip:

South…. very south!

Sarah, her folks, and I are now in Punta Arenas, Chile, the southernmost city in continental Chile (Tierra del Fuego, which we unfortunately don´t have time to visit, is a large island just south of here). Since my last post a few days ago, we´ve: – gone for two short day hikes under the shadows…


Hello from Chilean Patagonia!

Spring has arrived!

I’d originally had other plans last Sunday, but various circumstances found Sarah & I heading north toward our favorite stomping grounds of Mt. Tamalpais in nearby Marin County. We had a few hours, and decided to hike the Cataract Trail, high on Mt. Tam’s shoulder.

A weekend at the cabin

Sarah, myself, and our upstairs neighbors Gwen & Dave went to my family’s cabin in the Sierras last Saturday for a couple days of R&R and snow-fun. We left Saturday morning, which was great, as it avoided the typically-terrible Friday evening Bay Area escape traffic.

A walk in the park

Tuesday after work, Sarah & I took the scenic, non-car route to one of our favored dinner places, Park Chow in the Inner Sunset. It was a lovely, lovely evening, with temps in the high 60s before the sun set – perfect weather for enjoying a long walk through the park!

Six-word memoir meme

  “Being active outdoors justifies fried food.” Lori tagged me for a new meme in this post. It’s a six word memoir, inspired by Hemingway, who once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. He came up with: For Sale: baby shoes, never worn. Here are the meme rules:…
