east bay love

I find myself in Oakland-ish more often these days, since the vibe is so different. I've always had Lake Merritt love and then, there is Alameda. It is such a wonderful, quaint town with a beach, perfect for a tandem bike ride. In M's words, we  were "terrorizing the Alameda beachfront, pedestrians running left and right at the sound of the bell.... No major harm done." 

Ha! So true

You wouldn't believe all the crazy if I told you. It was an overwhelming week and at so many moments I wanted to pull my hair out. 
But... how great it is to still be able to find the beauty in the every day, I feel fortunate to live where I live. San Francisco will always remain one of the most beautiful cities, which is one thing to be certain of (even with all the changes in the air.)

I've been walking/running a lot. Partially because Fitbit, and mainly to de-stress. Life has got me with its ups and downs, so I will take my worries out to the city!

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!!!!!)
