I went back to Shoreline Park this afternoon and saw more birds (cormorants, pelicans, coots) and Rengstorff House.

We cycled back to the Caltrain station along a different route and saw the west coast of Presidio. At one break, I noticed this black hummingbird (probably Calypte anna).

I walked around Cavallo Point and Fort Baker and admired the trees and plants like poppies, lupines, and these Echiums (which are introduced) and have sculptural dried stalks. (I also visited the creepy Battery Yates and a nearby meadow.)

There were many gulls (Larus marinus) around the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. I walked around the park and visited Fort Point and the trails (which I stayed on) so that I could ride back on the west side of the bridge and avoid the pedestrians.

I ventured to the grocery store and took a new route to see different scenes (this one at Palace of Fine Arts or of San Francisco from Crissy Marsh).

Sausilito is a town on a steep cliff and a surprise when you come around the corner.
