Beginning of February highlights:
- Discovering the cool jetty by the San Francisco Yacht Club.
- Taking a gander at the recently reopened Palace of Fine Arts.
- Observing thick, low fog over the ocean from Lands End Trail.
- Going on a scooter ride to Treasure Island and aimlessly around the city.
- Roasting a whole chicken for the first time, then making soup stock, then soup.
- Planting fruit trees and riding an electric cart at the SF Botanical Garden.
- Watching a hawk at sunset.

I took a trip to the outpost and gas mining colony of the planet Bespin. Here, the clouds linger beneath the Bespin Gate Bridge.

My mind reels over what I’ll see in the middle of February, but I bet it will be more stuff from within 7 miles of where I sit for hours and hours a day.
