Foggy summer

Every day seems foggier than the last and it's hard to bother getting dressed most days.  I really don't remember a summer with so few sunny days on Potrero Hill.  Yesterday was the exception.

I'm getting a lot of work done, but not getting enough sustained exercise and that is not good.  The weight is creeping up on me.  I used to average 100 miles of riding per week, then 75, and now only about 30.  Last weekend I rode my Cannondale down the ridge to Menlo Park, about 45 miles total.  I was pretty tired after 30 miles, so I have a lot of work to do to get my riding chops back.

Yesterday it was sunny for a change and Judy and I rode our Bike Fridays to look into the nooks & crannies along the waterfront.  We saw two obscure parks on the bay, Warm Water Cove and Heron's Head, plus Mission Creek from both shores. And we pedaled 27 miles without really going anywhere! 

We stopped to see the Russian tall ship, the Pallada. and then got a hotdog on Crissy Field.  Really nice day, though the fog came back in too early.

On the way home we toured both shores on Mission Creek.  This is the shallow south shore; I wonder if it's low tide?
