Sophia  born. First breath at 7.23 am in San Diego hospital after Caesarian.  All well but not the water birth planned for; no details yet.  Another gorgeous day on the N.

Lovely unexpected visit from the Fee clan yesterday in the closing moments of a gripping  American football game at Atlanta in which the SF 49’ers came from behind to win & qualify for the Superbowl in two weeks.  We walked to Agate Beach from our house; my old pal John Fee (known since  Edinburgh in the early 7o’s); his three adult children & first grandchild Jackson. Pix to follow if I ever work out how to do that…
