Twin Peaks, Blue Angels, and Cowells Beach.

There isn't really a grand story to tell about the pictures I'm about to post below - sorry about this. Basically, it was just a relaxed Sunday, and I ended up in San Francisco and noticed the clear sky. Went up to Twin Peaks, which is one of my favorite places in the city, and took this panoramic.

At the same time an air show was going on. The "Blue Angles" flew in interesting patterns over the bay.

Perhaps the coolest neighborhood of San Francisco is the Mission District. Here is a higher resolution shot of this area.

And now my story makes a jump to Santa Cruz, where I went for a little surfing in the late afternoon. Unfortunately I haven't found a good way to take surfing pictures yet, so this view of the Santa Cruz Wharf from the cliff above Cowells will have to do.
