The One With the San Francisco Instagram Recap

Here are those SF Instagrams I promised. I know you've been refreshing this page every five minutes waiting for them.
I took way too many pictures. It was way too fun of a trip.
O yeah. That carmelba crepe. Best thing that I have ever tasted in my whole life. And I purposely go around tasting things. So, as you can imagine, it's pretty ridiculously good. Seriously amazing. If you're ever in Monterrey Bay, be sure you go to Crepes of Brittany on the pier. There's a real French guy there who is a crepe-making genius. You'll be glad you did. Even if you go to Monterrey Bay just for that crepe you'll be glad you did. Well, at least I'm contemplating getting myself down there this weekend for another one. Mallory and Cara were definitely making fun of me for being so obsessed with that thing. It's just that I like my taste buds to have a good time. And that was the time of their lives.

Now that I've gone on quite long enough about a crepe...that aquarium is also pretty sweet. Especially if you like jelly fish. They have like 20 varieties. That's a lot of jelly fish. And the huge tank with the turtle also has sharks and stuff in it. It's very cool. Aquariums are another thing I seem to be somewhat of a connoisseur of... because apparently I go to a lot of aquariums.

And if you haven't been to the Palace of Fine Arts, you should make it top priority. Just beautiful.

In general, this San Francisco trip was wonderful. One of the best trips of the year. And there have been quite a lot of those.

The One With the Trip to San Francisco

Last week I went to San Francisco with Mallory and our friend Cara for a last little getaway before they go on the ultimate getaway and leave for Peru for nine months. I am sad to see them go, to say the least. But it was fun to cavort around in California for a few days before they became expatriates.

And I didn't have any babies in tow, so I took a lot of pictures. Ready? Here you go:
Union Nations Square

The Palace of Fine Arts was probably my favorite place that we visited. It was just huge and beautiful and romantic. Yep. If I lived in San Francisco I would go there everyday.

Everything about this city is cool. It's always bathed in this ethereal coating of fog, which I'm quite fond of. O, and there are a million hills, so you get some good exercise hiking around. And then you are rewarded everytime you get to the top of a hill and get to look out on the great expanse of the city. And the Painted Ladies! They are my favorite. I do so wish I could live in one of those beauties on a very steep hill. I do believe that would be quite fun. They even have little secret gardens popping up every so often between them.

After spending a few days exploring San Francisco, we headed to Monterrey Bay for our last day together.

It was fun. So much fun, in fact, that a little later I'll post a gazillion instagrams from the trip. Because I know how much you like Instagram recaps. Or maybe you don't, and I'm the only one who does. Either way....

It's times like these when I really wish I had some skill in landscape photography. It's fun to play around in, but I just never feel like I can really capture how beautiful some of the places I go are. Maybe that will be the next thing I dive into... the only problem being that it requires more camera lenses and more free hands than are currently available to me.
