I was over in San Francisco's Chinatown and they had the lanterns lit and it was beautiful:
What was really cool was some street art I saw and it is what I wish for anyone who stumbles across this blog in 2023:
Happy New Year to all
I went over to Baker Beach in San Francisco to see some much needed water.
But first I got to see some beautiful greenery:
And then some beautiful blue water:
And a perfect view of a landmark on a clear day:
Baker Beach is a beautiful place in San Francisco to recharge your bones.

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah to all.
I am so appreciated of everyone who has spent a millisecond looking at this blog and my adventures.
I wish for everyone peace, joy and happiness not only for this season but for the whole year.
I am blessed that people actually read this blog. When I started this dribble ten plus years ago I never thought anyone would actually read it. It was just a creative outlet because I am not a creative person (like some folks).
I thank you for putting up with oddball self.
The cool thing is that I met so many cool people from both the blog world and my local world in doing this blog. The postage stamp on my world has opened big time.

So Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Boxing Day to all.
I went over to Salesforce Park in San Francisco to take a walk and found they had decorated the park for the season.
I think it is cool how they did it. It is somewhat subtile and not gaudy. It fits into the park:
In many ways, I really enjoyed this display because you kind of had to pay attention as you were walking.
