'Tis the season

posted: 05 Dec 2007

To be jolly, well that's what the Christmas song says anyway. And I want to thank the pupils and teachers of St Patrick School (somewhere in the North Bay area probably) for spreading a little bit of that joy to the ferry I ride on every morning.

The ferry in question is the Mendocino, one of the Golden Gate Transport's high speed boats that run between Larkspur (Marin) and the city of San Francisco. With the festive season gathering pace, the boat's decorations have followed suit. This morning, the snowman diaramas have been complemented by paper chains, brightly coloured ferry pictures, candy canes, angels, snowmen, stars and trees.

As a non native, I have just one word to say on the subject: AWESOME

(Oh, and thanks)
