As promised , well mostly to myself, I would share my Memorial Day weekend spent in San Francisco (for the first time in a long while since we always leave town) details with you. I must admit it wasn’t bad at all to stay local:
Day 1: Breakfast in Sausalito, Drive to Napa, Snapping photos while my other half drove ;), Stopped at my favorite winery here. Spent the entire day picnic-ing, discussing life over a few glasses of wine, napping under a lemon tree, then as promised having my first barbecue dinner of the “Summer” season.
Day 2: Spent the entire day celebrating the Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary. Ate non stop from every food vendor/booth there was at the event, napped after a long walk along the coast. Listened to various bands perform live along the Marina and although it was freezing cold, we watched the fireworks no less. It was most memorable to say the least, and the most fun to say the most, well that is for us San Francisco natives.
Day 3: I was determined to sleep in, then hang out in an actual bookstore (the last of the few Barnes and Nobles in Corta Madera). I was there for hours on end thumbing through books and magazines. This I terribly miss in the city and will make every effort to chase the retail bookstores wherever I go until they close them all down in lieu of e-books and such
