I was supposed to be writing a paper on the last day of my Spring Break, but it was such a beautiful, warm day that it was positively criminal to stay indoors. Kemal and I drove up to Stinson Beach, north of San Francisco. We stopped at the lookout spot for Muir Beach, where you can see the Golden Gate bridge way in the distance.
At dusk we saw a thing moving in the water blowing water up in the air. A whale! A ranger told us it was the first time he had seen one so close to the shore. A perfect end to a perfect day.
