Thanks to a fabulous bargain on Southwest flights and one very hospitable friend, we were able to take a long weekend trip to San Francisco this month. I hadn't been before, but the city has made my "favorites" list fo sho. I'm still infatuated with New Orleans, but I may have a wild fling with San Francisco from time-to-time, too.
Our first morning started with a ferry ride and tour on Alcatraz Island. I'm not usually into audio tours, but this one was pretty great. Plus the weather was gaw-geous.
After the tour, then meandering around the city a bit, we got dolled up and headed to Treasure Island for a Dinner Lab event. If you're not familiar, you should be! Gourmet food, tasty drinks, fun venues, plus an excuse to meet new people.
P.S. The breeze is responsible for this puffed-up dress look... no baby under there, Mom.
We spent nearly the whole day in Sonoma, then got up early for coffee and another San Francisco exploration. Fly Wheel Coffee Roasters has siphoned coffee. Fancy pants.
Thanks to our fantastic neighbors who wrangled the pugs while we were gone, and our awesome pal who gave us a bed and some invaluable tips during our visit!
Anyone else pulling a mini-vacay soon? Even if you love where you live, every now and then there's nothing better than taking a few days to escape to somewhere new!
