    Just had to check



    2 beds 1 bath 660 sqft

    Rent Zestimate®: $3,350 /mo

    OFF MARKET
    Zestimate®: $777,150 ... and it isn't even on a piece of land. You still have to pay docking fees every month.

    I mispent a good portion of my younger days in THE CITY. Hanging in the Haight turning on, tuning in, and dropping out. Those were the days I thought would never end but of course they did. Great times going to free concerts in Golden Gate park. Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Big Brother and the Holding Company to name but a few.

    In between all the happenings just chillin out fishing off one of the many docks the city has. The City has changed but still has a special place in my heart.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    ^^Sausalito Historical Society: Sittin’ at which ‘dock of the bay?’

    Sausalito Historical Society: Sittin? at which ?dock of the bay?? | Opinion | marinscope.com


    Earl "Speedo" Sims and his wife Betty were friends of mine in Georgia. While they were in San Franciso, they gave me a call and came out to Sausalito to visit. Speedo pointed out the houseboats behind the heliport as where they lived when Otis wrote this song.

    Maybe I should get in touch with the writer of this item!

    A few here and there, yes...but many more ragtag musicians performing after dark...lively night time movement around the square adds up to an entertaining urban scene...

    Uber'd down to Cupertino for a bbq with SD's old school chums today: beautiful weather, excellent crowd...most folks were highly educated Asian engineers (with husbands and wives) working at Apple, WhatsApp, Google, etc...not at all the staid automatons one might have expected...unfortunately, supermarket wine ("improved" with a wine aerator) predominated...still, lots of unexpected laughs amid very good company...

    Are you surprised? I am sure the wine was accompanied by the Costco appetizers.

    SF, good times indeed

    wondered how much it has changed since I lived there,

    probably too much to go back there

    The 2012 is a little soft for my own tastes. Tastes good but lacks edge.

    Lunch today at La Mer Cevicherria: excellent meal of ceviche with various sauces, grilled tuna/greens salad, and a seafood frito misto on the deck behind the restaurant...enjoyed a drinkable merlot before heading off to a local wine bar at the nearby Ferry Building for a wine/cheese tasting...back at the St Francis in time for cocktail hour and the strains of 70s hits from the street through the open window...bliss...
