What a wonderful season! Fall in San Francisco (the part of the year between the dry, foggy summer and the rainy bits, for those who insist we don't have seasons in the Bay Area) is truly a glorious time of year. The temperatures are great for long walks and the sun shines in the blue California sky. The only drawback is that the days are over far too soon as the sun sets earlier and earlier. Winter seems to come on so abruptly in this part of the world. You're enjoying a picnic or reading a good book on a warm bench and then it's Christmas.
