Monday I walked out to Fisherman's wharf from my office before work.  It isn't so awful in the mornings:

Sunday I led a Different Spokes ride out to the Cheese Factory and home via Novato.  Gorgeous weather.  Fantastic riding.

I met a new buddy at the Cheese Factory.  He growled at everybody but me:


This house on Sunset in Novato has the densist halloween decorations I've ever seen:



I headed home for dinner and then went to bed.  Long day.

Wednesday after work I took BART to Glen Park and then walked home over Diamond Heights and Midtown Terrace.  Super fun.  I love that halloween decorations are starting to go up.  Like these spooky ghosts:



Gorgeous views from Diamond Heights:



Proof that there exist crappier drivers than me:




Midtown Terrace:








Sunset from Clarendon Heights:






All of this and I made it home for dinner.  Fabulous walk!

Monday  I was up early having gone to bed at 7pm the evening before.  So I went into work a little early and dropped off my drag and then I went for a walk through Chinatown and over Telegraph Hill.  I got a pics in China Town:


Looking towards the Bay Bridge from the entrance to Pioneer Park:


Russian Hill and the Golden Gate Bridge from Telegraph Hill:


I headed into work.  My knee was bothering me towards the end of the day so I skipped the gym and went home and waited for Mr. Poe to come home.

Sunday I led a Different Spokes ride out to Lucas Valley with Sal and Will.  It was a GORGEOUS day and we had lots of fun.  I got couple of pics from the top of Lucas Valley:




We were home pretty early and I was asleep by 7pm.  Fabulous.

Wednesday after work I took BART to Balboa Park and then walked up over Mt. Davidson and then down to Woodside Muni and somehow managed to not be late for dinner.  I hadn't been up Mr. Davidson in forever and it was so much fun to hike up.  The views were amazing as we've had pretty incredible weather this fall:









I headed home for dinner.  Here's hoping for more walks on Wednesday nites!

Monday I skipped the gym and had a fun walk over Telegraph Hill and Russian hill instead.  I got a bunch of pics up on Telegraph Hill:





This is from somewhere on Russian Hill:


From the top of Nob Hill



I popped in on Miss Smith and then headed home for dinner.  I haven't been walking as much as I should and I miss it.  I don't know that I'm in a rush to go back to walking in the mornings as that puts me on this weird schedule where I'm getting up before 5am and the dogs and Mr. Poe hate that.  Stay tuned!

I haven't blogged in two months which I've got mixed feelings about.  One one hand, keeping up a blog seems so ten years ago and social media in general is starting to feel so dated.  However, I started this blog to keep a record of all the fun I'm having so that I'll be able to remind myself of it when I'm old and I think I'd like to keep up with that.  I haven't been biking a whole lot and I'm looking forward to riding a bit more.  I forgot to bring my phone to the last two Different Spokes Jersey Rides so I don't have any pics of them but I do have some of this FABULOUS ride I did with Wanderon and Bill where we hit one of the cemeteries in Colma on the way home.  Some of them are FAN-CY where only the classiest corpses get interred.  Here are a few pics of that:





She owns it.  And she's making it look expensive.


We had some incredibly warm weather this summer and fall.  That's one of the valid reasons that I wasn't on my bike.  I remember I was coming back from knee injury and the first long day I was out it was in the 90's and I was so miserable but I hadn't ridden in so long and I really wanted it so I persisted.  And I did.  So I don't have to do that again.  Mr. Poe and I went to Ocean Beach a couple of times and it was really fun:



I received my comeuppance in September when I rode up Tunitas Canyon after not having done anything remotely that difficult in months.  It took me down a notch.  A whole notch!


Nick and Jess came at the end of September and we had lots of fun walking around the city.  Including this preposterously inclined street.  I'll be seeing them again at Halloween:


I love a protest that shuts down Montgomery Street.  They're effective.  I've completely stopped fracking:



I'm hoping to be training quite a bit more for the rest of the fall and into the winter. stay tuned!
