Heron-Cam Report from San Francisco

First, to those of you who remember our out-of-control egret-cam from Christmas, be advised that we have replaced him with a much more compliant heron-cam. And when we offered heron-cam a plush assignment to check up on our folks who are in San Francisco for a few days, he said, "Cool!! Outta' here!! I'm on my way!!!" Who wouldn't want to fly out to San Francisco? Sadly, Mom and Dogdad had to take one of the legacy airlines, instead of Aire Ruby. Two hours late. "Food for purchase" ($10 for a turkey sandwich!!). Not enough leg room. Sigh.

So here we are in camp (again) and there they are in San Francisco. Dogdad is at a public transit conference.

Yesterday, they apparently had brunch at the Beach Chalet overlooking the Pacific Ocean (that's a body of water that, if you are from the Atlantic side of the continent, appears to be on the wrong side... but it's beautiful once you get used to where it is.)

The Beach Chalet was built in the 1920s. Then during the Great Depression of the 30s, Franklin Delano Roosevelt commissioned murals as part of the Works Progress Administration program. And look at what Mom and Dogdad found in those murals!!!

Our heron-cam promised a more detailed report later.

Too bad that heron couldn't poke a hole in that mural where that nasty squirrel is. But that's probably mean. San Fran is one groovy city. Hope your peeps have fun!


Gus said...

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Ooooooo, Ahhhhhhh. Eeeeeee....Woooof!!! Hehehehe, did they forget to put a painting of you up at the museum? Maybe you should write to the state and let them know that they forgot the most important piece of artwork!!

When you get your goody package don't forget to go over to Chef's Album and submit the pictures of you opening your Goody Package!

My oh my you WFT's get everywhere, even in murals! How neat.

How's the barking going @ boot-camp I wonder?

Love, Pats & pets

Lenny said...

Awesome foxie in that mural!
My dad flew on Sunday, then got delayed a WHOLE DAY in the Newark airport. He also should have used AireRuby. What were they thinking?

I'm glad your new heron is working out!

Your friend, Lenny
