Rain, drizzle, mist, haze–why not! As the ferry brought us closer to Angel Island, I thought, “Oh this weather again!” That weather is not unusual for the Bay Area, especially for an island in the middle of San Francisco Bay. But why today, when I’m there to take photos along with other Meetup photographers.

I left my carpool of hiker/photographers to do the 5 mile hike up Mt. Livermore, and I walked the perimeter road. We each had different experiences. Up high, there were more birds and flowers. Down below were garrisons, seascapes and flush toilets!

There were moments of sunshine that blared through the gray day, and I took full advantage of them. Once I started going through my pictures, I found many good shots. So the day wasn’t so bad at all. With a little editing, and I do mean little, I found about 30 I liked. I’m going to make this a two-part blog because I don’t want to bombard you with a lot of photos to view. And, I’m only posting 20 total.

The weather didn’t deter visitors who packed picnic lunches, games for the family and brought bikes. Everyone was enjoying their experiences, even through the downpour. All in all, it was a good day. Thank you Laura for driving; you are appreciated!
