My San Francisco Trip, Part 2

Since we had rented a car for our drive to San Francisco, we took the opportunity to venture outside of the city and go further to two main places. The first place was Sausalito. If you’ve never heard of Sausalito, it’s a city over the Golden Gate Bridge in the beautiful Marin County. If you’re in San Francisco, you can get to Sausalito by the Ferry that you can pick up by Fisherman’s Wharf, take one of the large green buses, or drive like we did.  The history of  Sausalito first started as a shipbuilding center in World War II,  but years and years and years later got a reputation and still has one to this day as a wealthy area that has a HUGE ART COMMUNITY which I absolutely love! The town and all the houses look like they’re from a fairy tale. When I lived in San Francisco, I would take monthly trips to Sausalito because I loved it there so much but my husband had never been so it was really fun to take him and show him all my favorite spots. Not to mention, we both enjoyed the nice cold weather by the water.

After being in the cold weather of Sausalito we decided to drive further inland to the famously wonderful Napa Valley and Sonoma area, where it jumped to about twenty degrees hotter. A lot of you know that I hate the sweltering heat but we still had so much fun in beautiful Napa Valley. Besides wine tasting, there were cute play areas for kids and absolutely gorgeous gardens that were pollinated by honeycomb bees. There were also fields of lavender which is my favorite herb and fragrance and made the area so calming. I’ve been to Napa Sonoma before but has never seen grapes growing on a vine up close before so that was also very neat for me to experience. I will have to say the best part about being in that are was all the natural petrified wood sculptures and furniture they had at the big wine tasting barn.  My husband and I both took photos sitting on them and I felt like I was in Game of Thrones with my bat sleeves.

My Trip to San Francisco, Part 1

I was recently in San Francisco, aka, my second home and had an absolutely wonderful time. San Francisco will always hold a special place in my heart for me for a few reasons. First reason is that I moved there right after I graduated high school to start attending the Academy of Art University and was so excited. It’s also my favorite place to live and I had lived there for almost 10 years. Also I met my husband there which is the best reason. I was very sad when we had to move back to Southern California, but we are planning on buying a house in San Francisco in the future.

   On my latest trip the weather was nice and cool as welI as foggy which I’ve missed. I took so many photos that I really had to edit which ones I wanted to post here but I still had to break this post in half.  My first set of photos here include shots of and around Haight Ashbury, in and out of my favorite vintage shops in one of my old neighborhoods, the Castro, which is the biggest gay pride community, (I’m so glad I got to be there during Pride month)  pictures from going out with one of my best long time girlfriends Lydia aka my wifey, and near downtown on Nob hill having a proper English Afternoon Tea with the love of my life at the incredibly gorgeous Fairmont Hotel. I hope you all enjoy and stay tuned to Part 2.

My Trip Tomorrow

I wanted to write this quick post just to say that I’m really excited about my trip with my husband to San Francisco tomorrow.  I think it’s awesome we are going during Pride. I lived there for many years and that city holds a very special place in my heart. It’s where I went to college and most importantly, it’s where I met my husband, the love of my life.

Here are a few photos from the last time I was there. These were just a few of my hangouts.
