One Perfect Day On The Bay

Sparkling clear - a rare day on San Francisco Bay.  Fog and gloom and damp are the usual fare. 
Wally said "Let's take the ferry to Sausalito and have lunch at Poggio.  With Lincoln."  Brilliant.  Started at the Ferry Building, one of the best things about SF...

Plus it's where you catch the ferry.

Everyone who has a boat was on the bay, racing alone...
 ...or in flocks. 
Sausalito sparkled in the sunlight, cool and crisp - it was the kind of day that makes you want to run around like a little kid, spinning and swinging your arms.  
At Poggio diners in sweatshirts shivered on the patio.  Seemed like a good idea at the time.  Warm and smug inside we ate squid ink pasta and crab and bottarga.  Fabulous pasta, interesting pairings. Check out the menu.

Passing the Golden Gate on the way home the ocean was hammered silver...
and Lincoln was as close to the side as he could get, his head hanging over.  Don't tell his mother.
It was a perfect day.
