Vallejo 7:20 AM

Wet and cold, but a ride is waiting.  This is a large commercial van, so it’s just me and the driver.  A pleasant guy.  We agree this weather would be better enjoyed on a walk along the north coast looking out at a stormy sea.  He adds “as long as there’s a warm house with a hot toddy waiting for you at the end of the walk”.

We settle into the rainy ride and NPR.  There’s a piece on the lemurs of Madagascar – I learn there are 33 species of them, from the tiny dwarf lemurs to the largest varieties.  They survive, in spite of recent years of political unrest in Madagascar and the plundering of the rain forests there.

Approaching Richmond the rain stops and we mosey on into the overcast City.
