A spider in Redwood Regional Park.

There were a surprising number of spiders in the park… And surprisingly few birds.

Taken in Redwood Regional Park during a hike with Len, Nathaniel, Stephen, Mike, and Daniel (Mike and Daniel are two of Stephen’s friends).

We went to an awesome Mediterranean brunch buffet afterwards, Bacheeseos.

The Moon rises over San Francisco Bay. Looking inland from Krista and Nathaniel’s condo. The San Francisco city core is just off-frame to the left.

The orrery at The Interval, which is run by The Long Now.

It turns out the Greens, a restaurant that Len has wanted to visit, is right next door to The Interval. So after brunch Len, Krista, Nathaniel, Stephen and I took a few minutes to check it out.

I’m not crossing The Interval off my bucket list yet, however, as I’d like to spend some more time there, and perhaps even see a talk.

The University of Louisville. Ryen & Jasmine’s apartment, where I stayed while in Kentucky, was just a couple of blocks from the University. I had a chance to walk through its grounds almost every day.
