San Francisco, Paging Edinburgh

From Bernal Heights Park, looking down on the San Francisco cityscape and the Bay, the view is strikingly similar to hiking Holyrood Park for views of Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth. Even the weather played along: overcast, with a chilly bite in the wind. Add some yellow gorse and church ruins, and this really could be Edinburgh’s sister city.

Uncanny, right?

Strangely enough, when C and I were in Edinburgh, we had talked about how living in the Bay area might have a vaguely similar feel to being in Edinburgh. Though I can hardly recall what the basis was for comparison (laidback pace? proximity to water?), I have to give it to C–she was right on!

*Shoutout to S for tour-guiding me to this great local spot today!
