Morning rendezvous with Chris, initially at the doctor's office (last check-up before a personal insurance policy),
southward on 101.
etc. at the Pancake House,
with views south,
proves premature, as the next scheduled appointment has been postponed, so, with a sudden gift of more time,
head over to
now for another loop: this being Turtle Back, again with fair prospects, including Bullet Hill, Jake's Island,
Mt. Burdell, and
Big Rock Ridge.
Lots of talk --
particularly this past successful first year at Harvard Divinity School and
relationships past, present, and future.
Back to back to the High School,
a cheery farewell,
off to the post office,
where astoundingly, there continue to be financial greetings --
Novato to schedule
then reverse course to the
Richmond - San Rafael,
hopping over to the East Bay and thence
north through Contra Costa and
(interrupted by a piece of Napa),
for an interval
strictly-speaking Mankas Corner, and
typographical roads and suspect sights & sites --
before beelining past the Pyramids,
North Lagoons to compose more Hamlet (page 10), by now the 70th day of summer locally, high 84.
