Riding for crepe's sake

Yesterday, I cleaned my old clothes out of drawers and the closet, two big bags full, including my Velo Girls' team kit from a few years ago.  I feel bad about giving it to the thrift store, but who would want it, I wonder?

Today, I went for my usual Saturday ride around the waterfront, over Ft. Mason and into the Book Bay.  I bought a beautiful photography book by Ruth Orkin. "A Photo Journal."  I was reading it in amongst the shelves, but my stomach was growling for lunch.  It wasn't until I was riding up Polk St. that I came across a good place to eat that didn't have a crowd waiting.  This crepes chef on the sidewalk drew me in . . . .

Feels like spring

Here it is, March already, and this is my first post of the year.  I've been enjoying myself, doing what I always do: riding, taking pictures, learning more technical stuff, going to classes, watching my birds.
A few weeks ago, I got two male zebra finches to keep Sibyl company.  Not sure how much she cares for the company, one way or the other, but I'm certainly enjoying them.  They're so cute!  (But very hard to photograph.)
