At the end of June, Kevin and I went on vacation.
We went to California for 8 days.
We stayed in El Segundo for a few days, went to Fresno and saw my cousin, and then went to San Francisco for a few days; we had never been to San Francisco and had an amazing time. Such a beautiful city contrasted by self-important people and horrible parking. Stunning parks though! And great food! We spent the 4th in San Francisco and were able to see a great fireworks show over the bay at Aquatic Park (by Fort Mason). Here are a few photos of our trip. Also, I haven't seen my cousin in 14 years, so that photo is gold.
|On the Bay Bridge headed into San Francisco. Our first San Fran experience: witnessing an arrest. Good times.|
|A cute mint-green Vespa. After a few days of endless walking, this seemed like the smarter alternative.|
|The Fleur De Sel cupcake: chocolate with caramel filling, ganache frosting and a sprinkle of sea salt. *inspired*|
|Some wild blackberries we (I) picked after discovering Tank Hill. Best view of the city, by far.|
Have you vacationed this year or do you have plans to?
