A couple of weekends before I left for NZ, we went to SF. We started in Bernal Heights
, from where the above photo was taken, a little suburb
where every second passer-by had a dog or a stroller, and Noe Valley (Noe has two syllables) and collected picnic ingredients (some cheeses, a rabbit pate, nice bread, and an Argentinian pastry that I forget the name of). crossed the Gold Gate Bridge
for Marin County, home to some dramatic scenery
, odd foliage
and a cold war era Nike Missile Base
(sadly dramatic missile free).
We ended up at an Italian restaurant in Sausilito
, a cute little beach town across the bay from San Fransisco
. Sausilito turned out to be a productive location for my Christmas shopping which I very much needed to start by this point! This year my sadly fireworks-free Christmas is on July 4.
