San Francisco Summer Fog

That thing the fog does from William Couch on Vimeo.

The Fog is wonderful. I watch it most often flowing over the Oakland Hills to Orinda. This is the view from a roof in the City.Thanks to William Couch.

I do remember, foggily, those long-ago days.
(Do not fret. DW#1 pan fried Dover sole for dinner tonight. That got me to thinking.)

Golf is for Views

Rummaging through some files, and found the following:

This is the approach to the ninth hole at the Presidio Golf Course in San Francisco. The course opened to the public in about 2008.
Of architectural interest is, on the left, the Club House, which is on City land. In the middle, in the distance, is the Lone Mountain campus of the University of San Francisco. And, on the right, is the gorgeous tiled dome of Temple Emanu-el.
It's a memorable view, even if you miss a hole-in-one by six or seven strokes.

The following aerial map is taken from the preliminary environmental documents. Pick your place and set out your lawn chair early. (Click to expand.)

And here I thought these dust storms (haboob in Middle Eastern Arabic) occurred only over there in the vastness of the deserts. But, on Tuesday in Phoenix:

I'm impressed. Anyone want to buy a time-share in Scottsdale? Cheap price.
