Red Sky At Night ...
Sailors' delight. ...

Took a handful of pictures of Treasure Island tonight. The setting sun drifting across the eastern clouds was reason enough.

The spinning Ferris wheel on the island frosted the cake.

The view from here
Posted by Picasa

The tidal bore, sailboats, Treasure Island, and the Berkeley campus in the background. A peaceful day.

New cranes
Posted by Picasa

New cranes showed up in our vista a few days back.

We can only see a bit of what is happening on the eastern span. I'm assuming these new cranes are needed to lift the roadbeds into place for the temporary span that will be used while the permanent span is built, but ? who knows?

Is this the crane we're seeing?

We have another visitor down at P29 -- not as big a ship as the cruise ship earlier this week. This is the Golden Bear, belonging to the California Maritime Academy in Vallejo.

(For Don's benefit, note the fog covering Treasure Island and Berkeley beyond ...)

A lovely sight -- watching the fog ebb and flow across Treasure Island and Yerba Buena.

And then ebb. Flow. Back again.

It's dark out now and we don't see the fog. We only see the lights on the islands get blotted out and then come back into view. Yerba Buena is almost clear now.

For a while. ...

(n.b. The planes from SFO are taking off to the north. Our short flurry of rains is over for the nonce.)

Bertold Brecht:   
Everything changes. You can make
A fresh start with your final breath.
But what has happened has happened. And the water
You once poured into the wine cannot be
Drained off again.
