Weather report from the beach at the bottom of Noriega street

I I always carry my smartphone when I take longer walks, but I rarely take a picture. Today I went all the way to the beach before taking it out to take a picture of the great weather we have on the beach and then did all kinds of shots on the way home. When I came back and changed my shoes to go for a spin on my e-bike, I saw that I was hitting a fun milestone on the odometer.

I took a photo of this building in June, when it was bristling with scaffolding. The work was finally finished recently, and now it’s clad in some sort of wood shingle siding (or look-alike).

The billboard changes quite frequently and is often a little odd. Having this message here in the city, and in the Sunset District just a few more blocks from the beach, sounded interesting to me. Wall art, road construction machinery, phone lines, and the liquor store sign provide additional local flavor.
A unusually festive display outside a store in Noriega Street which mainly sells packaged food products. I was about to ask a guy nearby what was being celebrated, but he turned and walked away before I could say a word.
I first noticed a large Lurk Hard sticker on the right rear panel (not pictured), and as I kept walking around and wondering if “Lurk Hard” was about some kind of wild internet trolling, the tail of this car made me smile. Lurk Hard turns out to be a skater clothing brand, fwiw.
No need to enlarge this fuzzy white cabbage. I watched him float and spiral out of a tree and land dazed on the ground. Above me, a black phoebe snapped at something else that wasn’t so lucky (assuming the butterfly could recover).

Amazon Prime keeps suggesting that I would like the movie Hard Eight 6552265245856845082, and they don’t are not wrong. Leaving my house on my bike this morning, I noticed I was riding a Fun Eight, or 8, 675 miles on my odometer. I took a photo of the milestone next to one of the street art projects being painted on JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park. Elsewhere in the park, preparations are underway for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass next week, but the street art is something separate.
