spring in california

Solvang is a town where I could just die from the cuteness.  

A friend recommended a visit to the Henry Miller museum, and although I have never read his works I did stop by. The man inspired Jack Kerouac and i'm ever so intrigued to start reading.

Carmel, CA. Took this shot while on a walk from the lovely cottage I stayed for the night! 

Isn't it lovely?

Driving down the Pacific Coast Highway.... 

Santa Barbara 

But nothing beats home sweet home in San Francisco.

General Store's backyard is the perfect place to be on a weekday afternoon.

The DeYoung is one of my favorite spots in SF. 

Springtime, do stay awhile...

(@ Succulents in Bernal Heights)

I spent 3 consecutive, dysfunctional days last week, but all I can say is that as a result I found this lovely shop, so I really don't mind anymore.

Yosemite weekends are back!
Time to brush off my climbing project list and hit up the valley.
This picture I took from Tunnel View back in 2008, it wasn't until this trip did I leave my heart in Yosemite.

on the road

Inspired by Jack Kerouac, I was thinking about hitch hiking around the west for spring break. Of course my idea was met with a lot of raised eyebrows. Eek! Yeah, I guess that idea was a little naive.

I do love the idea of just packing your bags and heading off somewhere. I can't wait to wander and be a vagabond, even if only for a week.
