This will make no sense to you "sleepy-heads", but I'm one of those people who enjoys getting up early -- somewhere around 4am -- long before the crack-of-dawn. In the days when I was punching a time clock I liked to punch it at 6am, mainly so I could get off work at 3pm and still have a little bit of the day left to call my own.
I'll miss it this morning, but the past couple of days I've been trying to catch the sunrise at China Camp, on the banks of San Pablo Bay -- the upper thumb of San Francisco Bay -- which isn't too far away from where I live. But even with getting up that early it's usually it's a mad-scramble to get out there before the show is all over. I'm running late this morning so I'll probably miss it, but I'm hoping to have my camera in position to catch a really stunning sunrise one of these days.
Whoopie! I got an award!
You'll see the award I got from Troy and Martha in the left sidebar. I appreciate the recognition and my ego-meter is pegged at full-tilt...
Now, the rules were that I was supposed to nominate five other of my favorite blogs, but therein lies the problem -- I don't want to exclude anyone, so I am going to pick my all-time favorite and give only one award to a truly outstanding blog: FogBay.com, an incredibly interesting and informative blog about San Francisco today and it's colorful history. Every posting of FogBay.com fattens my knowledge and appreciation of this great area we are priviliged to live in.
