Me-Muir-ial Day

Good Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,

Well, this morning, I woke up with nothing really planned... so I decided to finally go on an adventure that I had been wanting to do for a while... and go check out the area just north of the City across the Golden Gate Bridge.

First up was Muir Woods, so that I could see some Redwood trees and picturesque ocean views along the way. It didn't disappoint. The weather was a little gloomy in the morning, as it usually is rigth at the ocean, but it was still pretty amazing. Here's what I saw...

What's your wingspan?

FYI - Mine is equivalent to a brown pelican

"This is where I was born... and this is when I died..."

Brownie points if you can name that movie!!!

Next stop was Muir Beach Overlook... but not the beach. I wasn't going to go tanning or swimming or anything... at least not on purpose.

After that, I made the trek out to Point Reyes to see the famous lighthouse & Drake's Bay. The lighthouse was a LOT smaller than I thought, but the little walk to it wasn't bad at all. The walk back up the stairs was a little tougher... but luckily, I've been working out, so this equivalent of a 30-story building was no problem.

Orca... or Thresher Shark?

Which has killed more humans?

The same one that's grossed more money for Sea World

Sigh... the climb back up... at least it's not raining

Then I found a Czechloslavakian restaurant in Inverness called Vladamir's & had some rabbit... but I'm thinking the schnitzel next time. The rabbit didn't have a whole lot of meat to it. Luckily I chased it down with an authentic Pilsner (authentic because the original Pilsner... was made in Pilzn, Czechloslavakia... hence the, just FYI) and was on my way.

While on the way home, I was filling up on gas (only about a third of a tank for the whole trip but was low to begin) and a lady came up to me, asked me how tall I was, super nice, but then she told me how she was on her way to the airport to pick her friend up from New York... and she was wondering if I could spot her some gas money. She even offered me half-off her "award-winning videography work" but I gave her $10 cash that I had... and she asked if she could give me a hug. Was I going to say no? So we hugged... and she thanked me a few dozen times... and was off. Did she really need the money? Was she playing me? Who knows? I don't even really care. At least she was appreciative & knew how to throw in a compliment. So yeah... that was basically my day to this point.

See ya tomorrow. Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend!!!

Vertigo... One of the greatest movies ever made. I think I've seen that scene in a few other movies too.
