Saturday morning started out fresh and sunny.
{actually, now that I think about it...it really started out sick and doubled over in the bathroom. thanks little blue pills.} Anyways... 8:30am downtown at the farmers market was the first item on the official "to do" list and it was marvelous. I guarantee you, if I lived in San Fran, I would be down there every Saturday making friends with the jazzy saxophone player and the orange lady. {mmmm! they were juicy} I feel a little on the silly side for saying this {as you've probably already realized, i'm a little melodramatic in the romance dept}...but it's only true: that place was a feast for your senses. AND my little camera lens. {it's amazing the things you notice when you're looking for pictures} I loved every second spent there...especially the delish seconds {literally} spent eating my little raspberry scone and cup of hot chocolate.

the little cafe that I had breakfast in was a real winner. The bar I sat at to do my munching was placed right in front of this giant floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the bay.
I'm pretty sure i would have been happy to stay there forever.

these next two were some of my favorites. I'm convinced that a saxophone and an acoustic guitar combined with a little ocean waves and some seagulls is the best sound combo out there.
{it was a little bit fun when they finally caught me taking picture of them. that's when the show really started}

this jogger is another fave. kind of a fun little accident.

and the tulips?! those little beauties were so refreshing, coming from a town where sagebrush and potatoes are the main export.
One of the main thoughts that I brought back from this trip was:
"dear self: maybe you should get out of idaho."

speeding along the Golden Gate on the way to Muir Woods

Muir Woods {a redwood forest} is a great place to visit if you ever want to feel very very small.
Because you will.
Everything in the woods was beautiful. Especially the surprise little sun flares that my lens caught every once in a while. If it had maybe been a couple degrees warmer I might have been happy to stay there forever too.

Oh and P.S. this is my good friend {and bed-buddy for the trip} Geri. She's a photographer
and very photogenic to boot.

After that excursion {and sickeningly winding roads accompanied by fake throwing up sounds from the back of the car. thanks for that ladies.}...we went to the beach. and it was maybe my second favorite thing out of the whole trip.
i am such an ocean gal. as opposed to a mountain gal...or an anything-having-to-do-with-Idaho gal...
{is that complaint getting a little old? ...i think so}
Photobucket
people watching is so much more fun through a camera lens.
for example: this little old woman who was even cuter in person
{if you can imagine that}

THE FINAL WORD? I was made for cities like this. San Fran has honeymoon #2 written alllll over it.

So lately, I've been telling Roland I want to get out of the Army and move to Cali. He told me only if we move to San Fransisco. I'm totally sold now! It looks like such a beautiful place, especially in the middle of an ugly, cold, Missouri winter! Thanks for inspiring me!

DO IT! DO IT! Tys would never move there cause he's so dang paranoid of Cali falling off into the ocean.{haha!}
But it is honestly the MOST beautiful city...I would love to raise a family there...there are so many fun things you can do with your kids. They'd grow up real cultured! But hey...NC is not a bad place either ;) It treated me well!
