Just look at what I would have missed had it not been for a passel of noisy kids wanting waffles and no empty seats in the tiny breakfast nook at this Vagabond Inn Executive motel in San Francisco.
With no place to sit and slather butter on my own waffle, I decided to go back to my room and watch more inane TV morning shows. Instead, a splash of color through the trees me lured to the sea wall that runs along the back of this motel.
I balanced my Styrofoam plate atop the concrete wall and watched jumbo jets embarking and returning from the airport across the water as birds chirped in the trees behind me and the sea ducks searched for their own breakfast al fresco.
The temperature was perfect (for an Alaskan).
The ambiance unbeatable.
And the action....
,,a lot more interesting than morning TV shows!
Okay, time to turn off the netbook, gather ALL my belongings, and head for the airport. On the free shuttle.
