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. 


  1. Yay, I'm glad you shared pictures! The Palace looks SO amazing...I only know about it because I'm pretty sure I saw it on Project Runway once. :)

  2. I love your pictures! I will probably steal a couple from you since you had your fancy camera.

    That trip was so fun! Makes me miss you more than I do.
