A Spring Walk In My Neighborhood
A few weekends ago my husband and I took a little stroll through the hills neighborhood where we live. It is an oddity, a suburban neighborhood with rural aspects in the middle of a very urban city. In the morning when I drive my youngest to the school bus the trip down the hill will sometimes take my breath away with its panorama of water, bridges and the sparkling city across the bay. Sometimes it is the little details of the pale spring blooms and tender green shoots that attract my attention. In winter, spring, summer, fall and fog there is always something to make me appreciate where we are fortunate enough to live. It is not just the food that makes the San Francisco Bay area so special.
