The cure to living in constant fog is, of course, moving.  So that's what we did.  We moved from Daly City to Sausalito.  It's night and day.  Redeeming qualities of Daly City?  Ummm.....not many, maybe two - (1) access to the best dog beach (Fort Funston) on the peninsula and (2) proximity to the airport.  Redeeming qualities of Sausalito? Pretty much everything except the aforementioned qualities of Daly City, except that you can walk your dog everywhere in Sausalito while feeling safe (and there is a small beach accessible to dogs) and there is dedicated transportation to and from the airport. 

This place is pretty sweet.  It doesn't have the amazing view of the city and bay, but it's so high up on the hill that you feel like you live in the trees.  Literally! There is also a hummingbird that lives in the tree right off of the upper deck.  People are extremely nice in this neighborhood, as well.  I can't leave the house without being stopped and welcomed to the neighborhood.  I've never interacted this much with neighbors since I was a kid.  That makes me sound like a snob.  Apartment dwellers (which I've been for the last several years) aren't that friendly and I believe it's because they live so close to one another that they don't want people popping over all of the time.  And it's true.  When you go home you want to be able to enjoy your own space without distraction and on your own terms.  That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Below you will see a couple of pictures that are the view from the upper deck and looking down at the creek below.  Yes, there is also a creek.  And in the morning you (and when I say you, I am clearly talking about myself which would make it sound like I am writing to myself...and I very well could be) can hear the birds chirping.  It almost feels like a Disney movie except I haven't started singing along with the birds (at least, not yet).

If you start singing with birds, I'm coming to getcha.
