The breeze, the sound of the waves smashing into the boulders positioned into a tight fitting puzzle that lay parallel to a bike path that stretches for miles and miles, the birds chirping and maneuvering through the sky at ease, the kite runners angling their toy to be taken in the direction of the wind...all these things happening around me, people smiling, dogs running through the sand catching frisbees, groups of friends telling stories while having a beer, volleyball games, soccer games, couples under a blanket enjoying just being together. As I ran through all these things and noticed the sun setting behind the bridge and the temperature dropping to a mild 60ish. The feeling I had was more than exhilarating, it was more than amazing, it was pure bliss. I can honestly say I'll never forget the feeling I had tonight and I've explored maybe five percent of what this city has to offer but I guarantee if you traced my footsteps I took tonight — you'd move here in a second.
Dan cooked Jambalaya tonight and for dessert we had fresh sliced peaches forming a circle with yogurt in the middle and almonds on top. Sooo goood and today marked my 4th day of work and tomorrow is Friday and I'll be finished with my first week of work. I'm here. I made it. I'm in San Francisco and I love it.
p.s. I have altered my routes when approaching dogs...I learned my lesson.
