Bobby Kennedy was assassinated forty years ago today. I remember it well as a man I was dating worked for Bobby. We shared an astronomy class and the final was the next day. My friend was excused, and I made it shakily through the test.
Last night on the way home, we stopped at the newly renovated Fort Baker. I had read the new conference center, lodge, and restaurant were open. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and savored the views. The feel of the space is completely different than it was, and feels so expanded and perfect for retreat.
I returned again today not to eat, just to walk and feast on the views. I saw a fancy bus emblazoned with www.parklinkshuttle.com. I came home to check it out, but service was discontinued in 2007 in the Santa Monica mountains. I hope the buses are intended for use here. They were sitting quietly alone.
I checked out Battery Cavallo today, built in the 1870's. A hostile shot has never been fired. Today, much of the area is closed to the public for historical reasons but also to preserve the endangered Mission Blue butterfly. I looked but did not see one today.
Here is an area that was set up for defense, now used to educate. The Presidio has been given to GGNRA. This area continues the gift. The Bay Area Discovery Museum is also at Fort Baker, and was overflowing with families. All is peace, in this moment, here. May peace expand and plant more seeds!
