Wednesday I felt a whole lot better. I can still feel it when I cough or sneeze but other than that it's manageable. I came into work Market to 14th to Folsom to 2nd to Market to Sansome and headed home for lunch. I made it to the gym and then went for a nice ride after work. I headed down Columbus and got a nice shot of the view looking down Kearny:
I continued on Columbus to Stockton. North Beach is not a nice neighborhood. It just isn't. Development has been stalled in the entire neighborhood for years and years because of the Telegraph Hill Dweller's Association and some other assholes. I just don't get it. Nothing really changes and it just gets a little more run down every year. I was reading about the Pagoda Theater which is scheduled to be razed to make way for the subway tunnel machinery and potentially a subway stop. It's been boarded up for 20 years and it's a total eyesore yet activists are pledging to stop the demolition. These would be the same activists who have prevented development at that site for 20 years. I just don't get it. I continued on Stockton to North Point to Van Ness to Francisco to Octavia to Chestnut to Scott to Greenwich to Lyons and into the Presidio at the Lombard Gate. I headed over to Lincoln and got a pic of the hauntingly beautiful National Cemetery:
I continued on Lincoln and stopped for a pic of pretty Crissy Field:
I continued on Lincoln and at the Golden Gate Bridge for pics:
I continued on Lincoln and stopped a little north of the bridge for pics:
I continued on Lincoln into El Camino Del Mar to 25th to Lake to Arguello to Clay to Fillmore to Pacific to Taylor to California to Polk to Market to 17th to Ord and home for dinner. I got cleaned up and went to bed. I almost made it until 9PM.
