2 miles in the Presidio

San Francisco has approximately six days a year with a temperature above 80 degrees.  Today was one of those days.  Since we don't have air conditioning in our house, I decided to take the baby to what I thought would be a cool neighborhood for a walk.  I decided the Presidio would have plenty of shade under the big trees.

In the shade, it was fairly comfortable...

The problem was that there was very little shade on the course I took.  We tooled around residential neighborhoods south of the Lucas Film complex which were lovely but brutally hot.

There are a surprising number of young families living in the Presidio.  How neat would that be to grow up in one of these houses?

Above the rooftops, there are some surprisingly killer views.

I just wish I could have stopped to appreciate the views more, but I don't know if I've mentioned this - I was HOT!

Fortunately, our walk ended at Starbucks where I could enjoy a coconut creme frap.  Here's a picture of Annika and I melting in front of the Yoda fountain in the Lucas Film complex at the end of our walk.

Tomorrow's heat-beating walk: inside an air conditioned mall.
