Fort Baker Rain

Mailbox in Rain (Fort Baker) - Marin County  2017

Chairs in Rain (Fort Baker) - Marin County  2017

Our stay coincided with one of those heavy rain periods that we had during the past season. So we walked around in the rain!

Later, dinner at Murray Circle restaurant, quite nice. It took Mike a while to move the glass of sparkling rosé around so as to get both the wine and the bridge in there.
