About two weeks back, my dad cycled from Portland to San Francisco. On his last rest day we caught up on the Embarcadero over lunch and under sunny skies. I feel really lucky to have such a healthy and happy father who can still bike circles around me. I also really like showing him off on the blog, because dad gave me my first great camera, a Nikon film SLR, way back when I was in college. It’s really cool that now I get a chance to help him out with his Canon G12. But I still cannot explain the shoes. Maybe I’ll appreciate them more when I’m older. But I doubt it.
