A perfect day

Go Davey!: Delighted to start the day with the news that Davey Hamilton has secured a ride in the Indianapolis 500 with the Vision Racing Team. His No. 2 car will be sponsored by HP. Davey hasn’t raced since a terrible accident nearly cost him his feet several years ago. He’s had something like 25 surgeries to repair them and wants to get back in a car and get going. I’m so happy for him and glad I’ll see his return to racing in person.

Stunning: It was a beautiful day here. I went for an Aveda Tourmaline Manicure at Cinta with my favorite manicurist, Kim Diep. Then I wandered to Naan n Curry for chicken tikka masala, ran some errands, window shopped and ended up walking about 3 miles, all while listening to the Giants whip the Phillies 9-4. I ended the excursion with a stop at Taylor’s Refresher at the Ferry Building for a yummy milkshake, which I enjoyed outside on a bayside bench with a view of the ferries departing for points east and north. No jacket, no goosebumps – it was exactly the right temperature for an afternoon by the water. (Pretty rare for San Francisco, except for parts of September and October.) Tomorrow will be warmer, with possible record temperatures at the beaches. I may have time to squeeze in my favorite seven-mile walk across the city to Ocean Beach. It’ll be good training for Bay to Breakers…
