Bay Quackers

There is always something new to learn about San Francisco. Today I saw this red "car" catching my interest and it turns out to be a refurbished World War II Amphibious landing craft. According to the Bay Quackers website, It's used for a Surf & Turf Duck Tour of San Francisco and the Bay.

it's the name of the bar. But it's also a German language expression and means "spirit of the times or the age". I already like the term in German but I also like that they picked it as name for the bar. In addition to that, the bar has a "beergarden". Not the ones I'm used to in Germany, but hey, it's still a outside space where you can drink a beer under a tree (the one on the left side of the picture). If I'll get the chance I'll post a picture from the inside.

Sunday afternoon

At first I saw the very red house on the right, then the brown "Bernal Hill" in the background.
The hill is the one I took this picture earlier this year.
And last but not least the teenager with his skateboard ran or rather skated into the picture. Skateboarding is very common in this city with all the hills.

Twin Peaks - red sky

This evening we got this beautiful red sky, sunset, which I rarely see in this part of the city.
The thick grey stuff looking as clouds is fog, covering part of the hill. For me it's always a incredible spectacle watching the fog rolling in. I guess the city is famous for it's fog and I've never seen anything like this anywhere else.

One more, close up of the tower:

Flight or up in the air

taken during my flight from Portland to Oakland. I admit not necessarily a picture from "my" city but it was taken getting there, so hopefully it's a valid picture.
