I think this was the fastest year yet to whirl past me. It must have something to do with getting old. or maybe it actually is the job. Hm. Anyway, Alaska Air has these weekly specials for those of us who like to engage in spontaneous travel. SEA-SFO for cheap, but the days weren't the best. Except that we could fly in and out on the same day! Cool! Sea-Tac at an ugly 6am, SFO at 8:30, Bart downtown, wander through SF MoMA area, sideways through the financial district to the Embarcadero, up into Chinatown for lunch, back down to the Embarcadero to look for a lost hat (no luck), around the Embarcadero and UP! to Coit tower (and a nap), way across town to Lombard Street, over another couple hills for dinner in Singapore, past city hall, back to the Bart Station for a ride to SFO, finally landing in Seattle at 10-ish (slept all the way home). A few more miles on the feet, a fun excursion for the cameras.
