bear with a view

this california bear looks out over the bay. well, the bay is over bear's right shoulder.

this is some of the view from the place where my friend was pet sitting. the place with mini. the house has an almost 360 degree view of the bay. from the front deck, the house overlooks sausalito, tiburon and angel island. one can see downtown sf, the bay bridge and the richmond bridge. from the back/side of the house one can see the golden gate and the point bonita lighthouse and the marin headlands. it's incredible! and so peaceful with all that water surrounding. so much blue passing through every shade.

the house perches atop the ridge across the highway from sausalito proper. and it really feels like a perch. like a birdhouse. i slept in a bed high up off of the floor. going to sleep i felt like i was on the tip of a triangle on top of another triangle on top of another triangle (the bed in the house on the hill). i am a bit afraid of heights, so the sensation was not entirely pleasant. i could almost feel myself swaying out over the ocean. tipping. but i gave in to the idea of falling and slept so soundly.

(since my camera is really on its last pink leg, the view photos don't do the view justice. the sky wasn't pink at all. both days it was blue, blue, blue. tried to adjust the photos in photoshop, but the pink is just too much.)
