3 Houses By The Beach, San Francisco

Caribbean colors near my favorite SF beachside espreswso/wi-fi cafe. Am I glad to be home!

In retrospect, my trip was pretty tough at times. I’m off-balance when I travel anyway, and traveling like I did, too much backpack weight, stress in the cities…there were occasions when I would get depressed being alone and…hey, am I whining?

The trip was actually a rich experience:and it’s thrilling to be back; the tough times sharpen perspective at home.

I’m printing out contacts (thumbnails) of all 2500 photos, I swear I have enough for a book: people, places, ocean, jungle, waves, animals, fish, cities, Chilon ajnd Guitar Shorty, Costa Rican Celtic rock and roll, but it will probably end up as a chapter on a book I’ll do some year called Trips.

  1. Lloyd I think you should do a multi media show like that Bill Cunningham one on New York. To me your big talent is storytelling and with the visuals you would have a winner. I think you could easily get media interest.
