Last night, my partner and I went for an early evening walk at Land’s End to try and spot some owls. As we arrived at the trail head, the fog quickly started rolling in.
Walking in the fog at night can be cold and creepy, but last night, it created a sense of intimacy. It was quiet and still, and there was just enough light to cast a cool, dispersed glow over the Bay.
As we walked, we saw a helicopter flying close to the Golden Gate Bridge. Seeing choppers in this area isn’t unusual, but this one was sweeping back and forth over the Bay, with a spotlight shining brightly over the water. It felt like we were alone in a very large room, just the two of us and the helicopter, searching for something in the water.
