Today the city was so beautifully clear and crisp (in contrast to last Sunday's gloominess) and as it was also the first Sunday in December I decided to venture down to the Ferry Building after church.
Maybe it's because my family seems to always end up at the Ferry Building on Christmas Eve, or maybe it's because the greenery and the lights and the general vibes this time of year make it seem so holiday-ish, but I associate the Ferry Building with Christmas and so a walk through seemed like the thing to do today. I also felt like being near the water.
I was prepared for crowds, but it was much less busy than I was expecting. Full enough to feel energetic, but not so full that you couldn't walk slowly without causing a traffic jam. 👍
I had a pork bun for lunch (it makes my mom happy when I eat lunch on Sundays... I don't have a great track record), followed by a cup of Blue Bottle's Oakland Lights holiday blend coffee. I wore gloves to keep warm, took lots of pictures, stood on the pier, watched birds, watched people, and enjoyed the heck out of everything.
