Smoke on the water. Angel Island lights up S.F.
Last night, Catherine and I were watching a bit of TV, when I looked out the window and remarked on the "light show" happening on what I thought was Alcatraz. Yup, I figured somehow the blazing orange, lava-like goings-on were some sort of Fleet Week finalé. A quick check on sfgate.com revealed the truth: Angel Island was on fire. Being an upstanding citizen always ready to do the right thing, I grabbed my camera and snapped away.
