Things I Love Today: Fire Boat Station

Our new apartment is surprisingly aquatic. We're three blocks from the bay but the waterfront embarcadero plays heavily in our lives. I can see across the water, with big ships passing, to treasure island on my way to work.

But the best part is the the fire boat station. Our neighborhood fire department is now Engine 35 - a bright red boat that lives under the Bay Bridge at Pier 22 1/2. The whole thing is straight out of a children's book.

I think you can go on fire boat rides sometimes (when there are no fires). I'm pretty sure my parents have done it and since you're neighbors I'm sure they'd be happy to take you for a spin!

Will Rob still be doing the NERT thing?

You know, you should write a children's book about your neighborhood and self-publish it. Your future grandchildren would cherish it. Or you could write a whole children's book series on neighborhoods in SF, and have them published for real. If anyone could do it, I bet you could.
