I know it’s odd, but the San Francisco Yacht Club is not even in San Francisco.  It’s actually across the bay in tiny Belvedere.  I was strolling by one evening as the sun was setting and although there was no light on the boats of the marina I noticed a perfect frame of color and light set against the still approaching darkness that was enveloping the harbor.  It’s the opposite of what I usually look for.  Maybe that’s what drew me in.

It’s not called the Ahwahnee anymore, but it still is to me.  It’s good old impersonal corporate greed that’s taken the traditional name away.  But, whatever the name, the Ahwahnee is still a beautiful place to be when not enjoying the breathtaking beauty of the park itself.  To call Yosemite a park is even a misnomer of sorts.  It’s so much more.  It’s mother nature at her finest and the way that the Ahwahnee fits in to it all is a beautiful example of how a manmade structure can elegantly harmonize with the beauty of nature.

Night is a wonderful time to be hanging out at the hot tubs at Wilbur hot springs.  The air is cool, the tubs warm and the naturally green water pool is so refreshing after soaking in the tubs.  To go back and forth beneath a clear sky as the moon rises in the east… just a little bit of heaven on Earth.

Walking in style.  Bathed by luxurious beauty.  Yep.  I’m talking about… you guessed it.  Las Vegas.  Maybe others would call it overindulgence or something in that vein.  I just call it choice and another place to play in a world filled with places to explore, both natural and man made.  Of course, who’s to say man made is not natural.  We are, after all, part of nature.  It is true, usually I’d prefer the natural world of trees and rock and water but it’s a nice change to head to the pace and style of what other people have created for the rest of us to enjoy.  Hey, it’s Vegas.  I certainly enjoyed.
