A beautiful day in the neighborhood!

After a whole lot of rain that surely turned into a whole lot of snow back in Wyoming, we are having some gorgeous that prompted a stop by Lucca's on Chestnut St on Sunday for sandwichs to go. Fortified with lots of good stuff including fresh buratta chees and Acme walnut bread, we headed out across the Golden Gate Bridge to Rodao Beach and the gorgeous walks above the beach.

Above you see photos of the stop by Lucca's, the beautiful, beautiful sea and a pretty amazing sight of a fisherman casting into the wind from a high, high bluff. We have no idea how, should there be a fish on the end of that very long line, the fish makes it up the reeling in process without being battered to bits on the mega rocks along the way. True the rod is very long and the fisherman must hold it far out beyond the precipice, still...

Directly above in the last two shots you see some of the hidden bunkers that once served as guardians of San Francisco Bay. These bunkers are thoroughly abandoned now but each one that you come upon as you traverse these gorgeous hills demands consideration of what those days must have been like.

The last picture may be a little challenging. it certainly is not a great shot but demonstrates, I think, the large size of some of the battery bunkers as well as their very hidden nature. Hint: as you search for the bunker think great homesite.
