I took ten days off after the Left Coast Crime conference and spent them with a long-time friend who lives in Danville. She took me for the weekend to her country home in Inverness. I had visited the area once before, and it is stunningly beautiful! Here is the proof:
|The view from my room|
|Beautiful, even in the rain|

The photo above requires some explanation. It is a selfie I took in the mirror, which is two mirrors set into a corner, at a forty-five degree angle. That means that what one sees in the mirror is not a mirror image. It is the strangest sensation to raise one's left hand while looking in the mirror and see the woman in the mirror raise her left hand. Try combing your hair under such circumstances some time. Weird.
|While in the Oakland Museum, I saw a wonderful film of San Francisco in|
the fog. It made me think that fog could be the most beautiful thing that
could happen to a city. This is frame of the film.
|When we crossed the Golden Gate on our way to airport, there was no fog.|
I have traveled all over the world and crossed MANY bridges, but it still gives
me a thrill to cross that gorgeous one.
