Sky Shot Video

With my love of sky shots, I had to link A History of the Sky, a composite video by Ken Murphy taken over 360 days from the roof of the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco.


Trip to SF

Another trip, this time to San Francisco for the Intel Developer Forum.

A quick flight from PDX to SFO,1 a ride on the air tram,2 another ride on BART,3 and then a short walk to the hotel.4

This should be a fun week. :-)

  1. Another time in seat 4E, but the weather was way hazy, too hazy for any pictures other than an engine shot. 
  2. Airports are interesting places. SFO is nice in that it’s easy to find your way around. Much better than the time I went through SEA. 
  3. Thanks to helpful people in high-vis vests, I got my ticket and on the train … no problem. 
  4. Two blocks. Towing a duffel. Then I picked it up. A picture from the window and time to post. 

Cat Ballou on San Francisco Bay

This last Thursday, Cat Ballou hosted my work team on the San Francisco Bay for a team builder. We sailed from Sausalito, where Cat Ballou is based, out toward the Golden Gate. We sailed by Pier 39 and enjoyed the view of the city. As one of the “crew” said, San Francisco is best seen from the bay.

As we approached the Bay Bridge, we noticed a fire on Yerba Buena Island. We called 9-1-1 and heard the emergency vehicles going over the bridge as we went under it. We rounded the island and went under the new eastern spans being built just north of the existing double-decker span. Continuing north, we passed east of Angel Island and headed back to the dock.

A great time was had by all!
