Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circum spice

If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look around you.. 

People defy all socio-meteorological conventions to enjoy their weekends in San Francisco. The peninsula is 7 miles across. A good portion of it can instantaneously disappear into fog. The old airfield-turned-National seashore, Crissy Field, was the first to be subsumed Saturday. The fleeced and hooded ran for all manner of gleaming german automobilia as the dense mass bared down; extinguishing barbecues, crushing ids. A distant din of iphone dial tones symptomatic of a crazed, last ditch rush for restaurant reservations.

    Hey Meril! Now if SF were on 500 foot dunes I’d be set.

    Funny, I have been reading Julia a book about how two bear spirits formed the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Almost makes me want to endure the plane ride and car ride for them to see that and run crazy down those dunes. Almost.

    OH YEah! I’m hoping to make that trek up north when I’m there at the end of the month. I’ve always wanted to take a canoe or kayak or other sand-born craft down the shore side of the dunes. perhaps in February when it’s a glacier.
