View from my Window

08:05 this morning looking out beyond the Edinburgh City Bypass towards the Scottish Borders. 2 deg. C. Bit chilly but nice and fresh

Berkeley hills in the morning fog, looking west.  Golden Gate Bridge barely visible on the background horizon, middle-right.

Yeah...unfortunately, it's not my window. I live in the west bay, in a city called Mill Valley.

But I grew up in the Berkeley Hills.
