Some opportunities don’t come along very often, like sunny days in the dead of winter. To take advantage of this meteorological gift, El Hub and I hopped in the car and crossed the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco.
I was surprised that there weren’t many people out — well, as many people as usual for Fisherman’s Wharf.
Here’s a 3.5-minute video of today’s excursion…
A Saturday in San Francisco
Here’s a shot of San Francisco from a lookout just north of the city and the bridge in an area called the Marin Headlands.
No fog today…
I wandered into an outdoor shopping area called Ghirardelli Square. Yup, same Ghirardelli that makes the yummy chocolate.
I found a cool local boutique called elizabethW that carries body care, perfumes and home fragrances. I’d never heard of them before, but they’ve been around for 15 years.
Isn’t the packaging cute? It’s clean and girly and very my style. They had a bunch of unusual scents like sweet tea and asparagus (weird!), but they also carry classics like lilac and tuberose.
The shopkeeper told me about their website and how they sell the same items found in the store. They even ship internationally.
Women and girls (and one miscellaneous dude) were having tea service here at Crown & Crumpet tea salon. How fun! Unfortunately, El Hub wasn’t in the mood for finger sandwiches and fine china.
I love afternoon tea. Doesn’t Crown & Crumpet look like something out of Alice in Wonderland? I kept looking for the Cheshire Cat, LOL!
Those hills in the distance are my neck of the woods. If you look closely, you can just barely see the spires of the Golden Gate Bridge.
You just never know when the weather’s gonna cooperate, especially in San Francisco.
I hope you’re getting some sun in your neck of the woods.
