a Sunday outing

This is a bumper sticker we saw while walking in Golden Gate Park this past Sunday.

Jellyfish at the aquarium in the basement of the California Academy of Sciences.  We walk to the Academy from time to time as my wife’s employer has given her yearly membership.  The Academy is located within the park in the western section of the city.

This 3 way division is the custom (and likely the law) in the city.  Residents are given three plastic cans at their homes to put out for weekly pickup.

Sunday, January 3, was the last day for the artificial “snow” to fall at intervals for the benefit of children of all ages.  Inside the snowman, there was a short film on how nature makes snow in the clouds above.

All in all, a pleasant couple of hours spent on a Sunday afternoon.  We enjoyed a film in the planetarium and strolled through the various exhibits.  As we have already posted photo essays of prior visits to the Academy of Sciences, we will offer just these new images for this essay.
