San Francisco Skyline

I took the ferry to Sausalito from San Francisco and would recommend taking out of town guests for the ride as well. It’s an absolute must.

The day was typical Bay Area weather-lots of sun, cool breeze and a relaxing atmosphere.

Alcatraz Island

The ride is approximately 18 minutes, one way. Cost of the ride varies.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk


IMG_1928

The City of Santa Cruz, California, is about 74 miles south of San Francisco. I love waking up in the wee hours of the morning and driving there. The early morning scenery is what I go for. There are surfers everywhere and people sign up for classes in the morning.

Bus To Chinatown: San Francisco


gate
San Francisco’s Chinatown is one of the top tourist attractions in the states and a mega-fun place to shop. I take the bus to the gates of CTown whenever I have out-of-town guests. You can pretty much find everything under the sun in this ‘hood…I can spend the entire day tasting dimsum, munching on coconut pastry, shopping for anything San Francisco, etc.,

pecking
Peking Bazaar – all the trinkets you can possibly buy

duck
Columbus street is loaded with eateries selling roasted duck for under $10

dolsim
Dol Ho Restaurant – cheap dim sum for under five bucks…this place is really low-rent but makes up for it with the best greasy food…

fish
I get live crab here…

herb
An array of herbs to choose from…

shoes
Japanese geta and zori….

umberlla
The selections are endless…

pasta
Various types of cured meats…

Rows and rows of aged cheese…
Yummy smoked fish and salmon…
Prepared salads…
Prepared pies…
Prepared desserts…
All kinds of dips (my favorite-salami paste)…

This is my european eatery. I taste all the samples, fill my basket with goodies and enjoy the treats at home. I love their snack-able size sausages and slices of cheese at the register. The place is like a candy store for adults—specifically ME!

Avoiding Bay Area Traffic


The view from The Indian Rock is amazing. I stumbled upon the park one day, took the public walkway…used my arm strengths and climbed to the top!

The Indian Rock Park is located in Berkeley tucked in the middle of nowhere. It’s my secret meditation place and just a cool dig to bring a date. You can see the entire Bay Area (a 360 view).

…it’s also a Mecca for rock climbers…

…a makeshift stairs leads you to the top of the rock..

Berkeley Dog


I “coffee” at Berkeley, and today encountered this couple. Check out the dog piggybacking on the back of the guy and look closely at his hind legs…see how he perfectly balances them? Absolutely cute! This scene is oddly Berkeley…the couple chilling…walking their dogs…and not a care in the world!

Food Under The Blue Sky


Here’s my version of a blissful food day…. breakfast—coffee cake with decaf coffee (yep, picture me caffeinated…grrrrr)…lunch—chef salad with slices of turkey and ham. Ah…and yes, I did get a tad bit of work done!
