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.
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.
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.
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.
Tonight’s light show seen from our house (us northern Californians don’t get to see this often)
