Monday walk2werq Monday and I had a fantastic walk through Twin Peaks, Midtown Terrace, Miraloma Park, Sherwood Forest and Westwood Terrace before getting on BART at Balboa Park and heading downtown.  The walk came in at 7.4 miles.  The weather was fantastic and I had a a great time and I got a bunch of pics:

This is view looking up Corbett:


The view from Twin Peaks:

Glamorous Sherwood Forest:





The cool Chinese Consolate on St Elmo.  The house is so glamorous and fabulous.  I love it.




I had a couple of minutes before Whole Foods opened so I headed up to the top of Plymouth looking down on the Oceanview:




I headed into work.  I went home over lunch and then to the gym after work for spin and strength training.  Fabulous day.

Sunday I got up and headed downtown to ride in the pride parade with AIDS Lifecycle.  I've ridded in the parade for years and it's so much fun.  I can't figure out why more riders don's show up.  I got a couple of pics:




Me on the parade route:


I worked at the Different Spokes booth for a couple of hours after the parade and then I went home an got cleaned up.  We headed over to Ben and Courtney's in the late afternoon for Ben's birthday party. It was a lot of fun. We headed home for dinner and then we went to bed.  I had big plans for baking but that never happened.

Saturday we got up and headed over to Marin to have brunch with friends in Sausalito.  After we walked around town a little.  I don't remember the last time I hung out in Sausalito and that's a shame because there's a lot to see:


I liked this pretty Craftsman church:



We headed home and I got the dogs on leashes and took them for a walk with the stroller through the Castro and the Mission.  The walk came in at 4.8 miles but it seemed a lot longer.  They dyke march was getting organized when I passed by:


I headed home for dinner and then we got cleaned up and went to bed.

Thursday, I worked from home and sorted out the cable.  Comcast sucks.  Their customer service is embarrassingly bad and it basically took two weeks for them to figure out something that should have taken about two minutes.  But at least it's done for now.  We no longer have a land line and our data has been bundled with the minimal cable we get.  It's a lot easier than it used to be.

I worked from home again on Friday.  My friend Quela was in from Albuquerque and we had lunch and then we headed to the trans march late in the afternoon.  They had a lot of energy but could stand to work on execution:




Then we headed to the edge to get a mason jar full of long island iced tea.  I drank about a quarter of mine and then walked away.   Quela was much more ambitious.  Have I captured the moment where it all went wrong?


We headed home for dinner and then we went to bed.  Quela slept over.  She wasn't gonna get very far.

Wednesday I came into work on Muni and then mid day I headed up to Grace Cathedral on Nob Hill for a super fantastic tour that I recommend highly.  It was led by the verger and he's incredibly knowledgable and he took us to all sorts of places that ordinarily we wouldn't be able to see.  We took a lot of pics:




This is the Archibishops sitting room:






The tower:









I headed back to work for the rest of the day.  After, I went to a strength training class and then a spin class and then headed home for dinner.  Then bed.  I was beat.  Fabulous, long day.

Tuesday I got up and had a few things to do for the party that night so I went into work on my bike a little late straight down Market.  After work I went for a nice ride.  I headed off Clay to Drumm to Washington to the Embarcadero to Townsend into Kansas to 17th to Alabama to Precita to Mission to Richland to Arlington to San Jose to Monterey.  I stopped at Sunnyside Conservatory for pics.  They did such a lovely renovation a couple of years ago and I love hanging out there:








I continued on Monterey into Santa Clara to Portola to Claremont to Dewey to Laguna Honda into 7th to Irving to 9th and into Golden Gate Park.  I headed over to the Music Concourse:


I headed over to JFK to Kezar to Page to Scott to Duboce to Noe to Market to 17th to Ord and home. I arrived at the tail end of the dinner and helped with the dessert.  Everybody was gone by 9.  I was beat.
