Robert Louis Stevenson State Park

Robert Louis Stevenson State Park

I just returned from a short visit to Calistoga. Just north of town, on a rainy spring day, the Robert Louis Stevenson state park is nothing short of magical.

Zulu’s Stare

Zulu's Stare

There’s no feline more beautifully exotic than an Abyssinian. They are smarter, more playful and demanding of your attention than any other breed. If you’re ever lucky enough to be owned by an Abby, your life will be richer for it.

Mt. Diablo Burns

In northern California, fire is nature’s preferred method of renewing itself. Like clockwork, September is fire season and this year is no exception. This year it hit close to home. Here’s the view from my house — both last night and this morning — of Mt. Diablo burning just across the San Francisco Bay.

Evening view from San Francisco’s Cliff House

Evening view from San Francisco's Cliff House

One of my favorite places to take out-of-town visitors to dinner is Sutro’s at the Cliff House. Yes, the food is great. But with the restaurant perched atop the cliffs overlooking San Francisco’s Ocean Beach, the views and sunsets are unforgettable. Last night was no exception.

Watching America’s Cup races on the San Francisco Bay

This week I had an opportunity to go out onto San Francisco’s bay to watch from up-close the America’s Cup Louis Vuitton Cup finals. The Louis Vuitton Cup finals are a competition to determine which boat will sail against the defending champion Oracle USA team for the 2013 America’s Cup. This finals competition is between Italy’s Luna Rossa and the Emirates New Zealand teams. New Zealand is the clear winner with a substantially faster boat. But watching these works of art and technological prowess race across the beautiful San Francisco Bay is breathtaking.
