The Wonderment of the Golden Gate Bridge

“To me… San Francisco is an ideal city, intellectually stimulating and naturally beautiful. The oceans and forests are close enough to refresh the spirit; the architecture is always exciting.” ~ Ruth Bernhard  Fascination I admit it is a total cliche. It SCREAMS tourist, but I can not deny my fascination with the Golden Gate Bridge. This is coming from someone ….

Peet’s Coffee

“I am a coffee fanatic. Once you go to proper coffee, you can’t go back. You cannot go back.” ~ Hugh Laurie If you have read my blog you know what a coffee fiend I am. From Starbucks, to Frontside in NoCo to Cafe Jax in the Concrete Jungle. Coffee is a language I not only speak, but I have ….

Drybar Hair Heaven

“For me, hair is an accoutrement. Hair is jewelry. It’s an accessory.” ~ Jill Scott When my friend suggested going to a Drybar in San Francisco, I thought why not? It was something to do on a rainy day. It had a cult following in New York City, but I had yet to jump on […]

Eating Our Way Through: Our Last Day

“You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world.” ~ William Hazlitt  The day dawned bittersweet as it was our last day. We were flying out on a red eye, which was both a blessing and a curse. We had the whole day ahead of us, but because of Spring ….

Stepping Into Sausalito: Day Five

It really is incredibly different from San ….

Friendships, Ferry Buildings, Fashion: Day Four

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” ~ Maya Angelou Day four dawned with much excitement. I had been anticipating this day, weeks in advance before I ever arrived in the Golden City. I was ….

Ice Cream Decadence: Day Three continued

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” ~ Charles M. Schulz  I know you are all thinking I left something epic out on Day Three right? I mean after all that mermaid fun a girl has got to be hungry, right? You would be right! For the sake of lengthy posts and the ….

California Mermaid Adventures: Day Three

“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” ~ John F. Kennedy  Day three dawned bright and warm in North Beach. With temps approaching seventy it was the perfect day for a mermaid adventure which just so ….

Golden Sunrise, Exploring the Golden City: Day Two

“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” ~ Lao Tzu  Day two was equally magical if not perhaps channeling our slight inner insanity, as we chose to wake up before the sun, hopping on a bus just outside my aunt’s apartment to take us to the Golden Gate Bridge. The last time I was ….
