Coyote Breath Sea Music Festival, San Francisco - May 3, 2003 (57* d) RE: Sea Music Festival, San Francisco - May 3, 2003 28 Mar 03

Oh what a fun time! I haven't been on the Thayer (or the Balclutha) for a good long while! I will be in Maine, visiting my sister. But I'll send my daughters and granddaughter (and possibly a grandson) as surrogates. I think that Molly (the oldest daughter) would go just to hear Shay Black.

Way back when, I used to work for the City of San Francisco's Port Authority as a Building and Grounds patrolman. It was a fantastic gig and it allowed me to get to know the Embarcadero intimately. We had been hired to place the Harbor Police. I could bicycle from my flat on Green street to the Ferry Building where our offices were. Spend the "swing" shift walking through all the piers, jawing with the street people, chuckling at the "blue skinned" tourists, shivering in shorts and tee shirts, watching the fog and listening to the horns' concert. One day a week I worked from 4 pm to 8 am, double shift. Got to watch the Embarcadero come alive each thursday morning. The job evaporated with the passage of Proposition 13.
