on a Sunday

I love when friends come to visit San Francisco, I end up in places I don't normally go, like Chinatown. Or delicious places in other neighborhoods, like B.Patisserie. Or we stumble into random hookah bars with beautifully decorated ceilings, and end up catching dinner at the oldest dim sum restaurant in the U.S!

Now i'm ready to face another week, with thoughts of climbing trips and even more thoughts of change... so much uncertainty excitement ahead!

secret beach

Our yearly summer tradition is a weekend camping on the beach. It's a very specific beach, across from strawberry fields and an entrance not known to many. Therefore, we've dubbed this beach "Secret Beach," and every year around this time we take over the entire beach.

I'm usually hesitant to post friends on here, but being in our bathrobes on the beach was just too fun not to post :P I even played soccer in my robe!

Beach bonfires with good beats, it was such a perfect summer night. A group of us got up and played Capture the Flag by moonlight. It was so intense and I can't remember the last time I had so much fun. There's nothing like being a kid again.. sigh.

slow coast

Drive down the hwy 1 from San Francisco, and encounter the Slow Coast. It's a wonderful stretch of the highway, where you can find Pie Ranch, local brewers, strawberry picking, and a general store airstream. All wonderful discoveries, while cruising alongside the beach. I really don't think we made enough stops! 

(p.s. they hold barn dances here every month!!!!!)

A weekend in YNP may be all one needs, for whatever ails you. I spent most of last, (last) weekend solo, exploring Tuolumne meadows by myself, finding beautiful lakes and sitting at the base of Lambert Dome in solitude. Then to balance all that alone time, with my good buddies, joining campfires and wading in Tenaya Lake, not a bad time right?

While city life is great, (I wouldn't trade in my weeknight dance parties just yet,) I think soon enough I just want to leave my San Francisco. Soon....
