Cliffside Hang Gliding

No, I did not go hang gliding, fun as that would be. But I did see hordes of them one blustery Saturday afternoon when at a dog park with Sunapee. I was heading back from Target and needed to tire out the puppy before he drove me truly nuts over the weekend while Matt was in Tahoe. It was a chilly and very windy day, especially on the coast. I stopped at Fort Funston, a part of the Golden Gate National Parks, which many describe as doggy heaven for its off leash policy, trails, beach access, you name it.

On my approach I noticed the hang gliders and I was wondering where they were coming from. Turns out, the park is heaven for them too, with the high cliff parking lot and windy nature of the coast.

Seeing this was just an added bonus to my errands!

Foods I Wish I Liked

Peppers red in particular as these appear everywhere

Raw onions these are a pain to pick out of salads


Mayonnaise - has always been tough to avoid

Whole wheat pasta

Pecans and walnuts - have been ruining good cookies and brownies for decades



Yes, I am aware that this makes me a picky eater. Oh, well.
