While in San Francisco earlier this week, I spent an afternoon exploring the de Young Museum. Seems like when I go to a museum to check out a specific exhibition, I'm often more impressed by an exhibition I didn't know about or didn't plan on seeing. This time, I wanted to see the Maya Lin: Systematic Landscapes, but enjoyed Asian | American | Modern Art: Shifting Currents, 1900-1970 a lot more. Both are worth seeing. I was also hoping to catch the sunset from the museum tower, but they kick everyone out at 5 pm. Lame.
The daily routine: Get up, make some coffee in the [French press], drink coffee while completing the morning surf, blog, walk the dog, run errands, go to the [Ferry Plaza Farmers Market], run along the [bay]. . .
May is almost over and June is just around the corner, which means that in Northern California the season known as "the coldest winter I ever spent was the summer in San Francisco", is here. Basically, and this is a hint for those of you about to make your first trip to San Francisco this summer, it means that the weather sucks. Cold, fog, cold and fog, and cold foggy fog. Pack a sweater and leave your shorts at home. - Bruce Cole (the rest of the story is actually about peas)
