One of the big life events occurred for me in February – I became a grandfather (for the 1st time) and this occasioned a visit to San Francisco. Actually South San Francisco which is a town south of San Francisco, fairly close to the airport and really close to Pacifica. Pacifica is a small town on the Pacific with great walking/running trails and views of the ocean.
There is one bookstore to which we make our annual pilgrimage. This time for $1 I purchased “Guns, Germs and Steel” by Jared Diamond a much referenced and fascinating read. Especially for me with my interest in the development of agriculture and communities across the world. Also an organic cafe with good coffee to mark the halfway point of the morning run.
And to reach the cafe we pass small houses with flowerful front yards.
Although the paths cross rugged natural terrain you cannot but notice extensive work protecting the cliffs and reintroducing plants to the landscape.
We had a great time with family and look forward to more visits to the area.
