California, I love you so much, in spite of this

This is a picture from today — my son and I were visiting San Francisco.

We used to live in the Bay area; we’d get out to San Francisco often. The drive is about an hour. It’s nothing — but you get lazy and spoiled. When you live in Silicon Valley, San Francisco doesn’t always feel like your backyard. It’s an effort to visit the city.
