My San Francisco world isn’t very big. It exists almost entirely in a small sliver extending from Pier 38 on the Embarcadero to Dolores Park. It’s a nice snippet. On occasion, an adventure extending beyond that miniature realm presents itself and this time it came in the form of a sail boat.
Every time I visit San Francisco, I find out a little bit more about myself. A little soul searching and a little time dolce far niente can go a really long way. Here are just a few other things I learned on this particular, ever-so-needed trip… Kettlebell workouts aren’t as easy as they look. People who hate cheese still wear I <3 Cheese shirts. Sailing San Francisco Bay on a boat named Talisman is a good adventure if you ever get the chance to go. Captaining lessons sound better in a British accent. Cute things like dolphins really shouldn’t distract a person from sailing a boat. It’s likely true that infinite laughter loops could happen under some conditions, but empirical testing should be done at some juncture to prove the theory. “W” signs are hilariously cute when done by people who never stop smiling. The most adorable Golden Retriever I’ve ever met is named Darcy. Gdgt events are very entertaining. I will never ever forget The Hotel Utah Saloon. Roam has extremely delicious burgers and shakes. Lululemon is cute in an over-the-top, entertaining kind of way. The fantastic realm of Asgard is even more fantastic when Thor is involved. Ending a night with evil lumberjacks, chainsaw air guitar, and forest warrior spirits is kind of epic in it’s own way. This trip was filled with friendship, reaching out, sweet doing nothings, and hard questions. I probably need a lot more of the same.
Pete Davies, thank you so much for taking us sailing. It was really fun!!
