There's an abandoned house on an island a bit south of San Francisco. Año Nuevo Light Station which operated between 1872 and 1948. Don't try going there because it's a wildlife refuge today. Sea lions have been spotted sleeping in the bath tub.

Año Nuevo Island Light Station, long abandoned. This is why I lugged around the BFL. Read the story of this place over here: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=23852

Few things scream "Spring!" quite at loudly as a magnolia tree in full bloom.

"""
The impetus for ride-sharing and autonomous vehicles comes out of the Bay Area’s reverse Goldilocks problem, in which it is too dense for comfortable car commuting and not dense or politically unified enough for subway or deep mass transit investments.

This leads to a chicken-and-egg problem in which longtime property owners and Bay Area voters refuse to build more housing because they are concerned about traffic impacts. Without increased transit capacity, it will not be possible to add meaningful amounts of housing, at all income levels, to the Bay Area.

Karas Kustoms "Ink" Fountain Pen, in "raw tumbled aluminum", with a titanium nib.

This pen is machined here in the US, from aluminum bar-stock. Then as a last finishing step, it's rock-tumbled to give the weathered surface, but there are places that don't get the treatment (recessed grooves, and the threads). It's really a lovely pen.

The titanium nib is also a really unique look, as titanium doesn't take to machining very well (it's harder than the tooling), so it's usually EDM'd. I'm curious how they manufacture these nibs (made by Bock, in Germany).

This image is looking up at the ceiling of Palacio de Bella Artes or in English the Palace of Fine Arts which is Mexico City's opera house. It was completed in 1934 and it was the most impressive building we saw there. The interior is art deco and has several important murals by Diego Rivera and other famous Mexican Muralists. If you ever have a chance to visit Mexico City this building is a "must see".
