I see it as sort of a spiritual mission--to bring knowledge of the sunrise to the unconvinced masses. Perhaps it's been a while since you've seen the sunrise--sunsets are much more convenient--but I insist that there is a vast difference between the two. As vivid of a difference as birth is to death.

It's been 40 years since I've taken the boat over to Angel Island. Maybe on my next visit I'll ask how Angel Island got it's name. I am SUCH a bad reporter--ten points and a gold star to anyone who can give the explanation.

So, it's early--still a roll-of-the-dice whether there will be much drama in the sky this morning. In any case, it's time to get out there and wish the birds a warm morning, a full stomach, and happy landings. Quack, quack, quack...

In 1775, the Spanish naval vessel San Carlos made the first European entry to the San Francisco Bay under the command of Juan de Ayala. Ayala anchored off Angel Island, and gave it its modern name (Isla de los Angeles); the bay where he anchored is now known as Ayala Cove.

The power of the Internet.
