♥ Stinson Beach

I was nervous about moving to San Francisco and leaving behind my network of long time friendships and connections, but since I've moved to the Bay I've been extremely blessed to have met some of the most genuinely caring, interesting and fun-loving friends. And when my friend, Gaby, suggests an adventure, I would be foolish to ever decline. So, back in the midst of June-Gloom she suggested a day trip to Stinson Beach.  No fog was going to stop the two of us from exploring. With a couple of bottles of wine packed in a cooler, we made our way out of the city,  weaving through the twisty mountain roads along the California coastline, all while jamming funky jazz and reggae music to set our spirits right.  It's a wonderful thing in Northern California, to be able to venture out of the busy city and into nature in a matter of minutes. The mossy green mountain sides covered by wispy layers of fog felt very much like driving through a dream. And despite the fog, the weather felt very pleasant as we settled into the sand to watch people, sip wine and laugh at the possibility of the existence of mermaids ;)


On our way back to the city we took a quick detour to a sweet lookout point to view the misty Golden Gate Bridge.  This is one of my favorite spots to see the beautiful bay, city buildings atop the hilly landscape and the bridge. 

We ended the day by warming our bodies and bellies with hot tea and Pork Pumpkin Curry at Burma Superstar {restaurant review on THAT gem coming soon}. Looking back, I am so thankful for this day. It brought us closer together and introduced me to wonderful new sights. I can't wait to come back with the sunshine!

♥ So Much Love,
Mel
