Another Day Trip to San Francisco

Monday Steve and I set out for a day trip to San Francisco about a one hour and 40 minute drive from our house. 
It had been so hot here, but when we got there it was cold. I always forget about the shocking difference in temps from inland and sea coast. Brrrrr! and I wore a skirt and light sweater I was so cold, today it is so hot I wish I was back in San Fran.

My best photo was posted to Instagram click here to view it.

This is a good photo not only because it is of myself LOL! with sun in my eyes and my face all distorted, but because it shows the Embarcadero, which is the eastern waterfront and roadway of the Port of San Francisco bridge which is behind me, it is the bridge that sustained major damage during the 1990's earthquake.

I am standing in a little seaport town called Sausalito...very quaint little town.

A few photos taken in the 90's in Sausalito of me and my family

my son Shane, Me and my daughter Kirsten

My husband was adorable! isn't he so handsome, it was a rainy day, memories I love them!

My mission was to get photos of the Golden Gate bridge from many different angles we had to drive all over the place to get them but it was fun. Just about the time we were leaving for home the sun came out. We will go back again and next time spend the night to get night shots.

Both this shot and the one below were taken in the Marin Headlands Bluff areas. 

This shot was taken from Bakers Beach

This was taken just past Bakers Beach at ? lookout, I forgot the name. We had a picnic there.

So those are the foggy ones.

Golden Gate Arches

There don't you feel like you were on the bridge now?

Sausalito Ferry, you can take this from Sausalito to Peir 39 in San Francisco or to the Alcatraz Island.

We did not take the Ferry, we drove all over it was fun.

My ice cream is above macadamia nut with chocolate swirl

Ice Cream we got in Sausalito that place has been there forever!

  4. Hi Kat,
    I love the pictures old and new of SF and Sausalito it has been years since I have been up there. I need to do that soon. I didn't know you were on Instagram I am going to look for you on there. Hope you have a great week ahead. Hugs, Dru

  5. Hi Kat :-) That looked like a nice trip, I have never been to SF but I did go to San diego. Your traveling companion is adorable. I like seeing all the places bloggers go, I'll probably never get to most of them so it's nice to see the world through all of their eye'! I loved your antique dishes the blue is so vibrant and the design is beautiful. What a lovely set to be handed down for generations. I also love your cupcake runner! Sooooo cute and the tea set houses are so sweet. I do have a cookie jar house set that comes with a teapot, creamer,sugar and salt and pepper. I think yours are prettier though, one day I'll post them maybe when I post some of my faux sweets I bought :-) thank you for visiting me, I haven't been doing much blogging, I have a sick pooch that is going to have some surgery tomorrow so it's been kinda blah here lately. Have a wonderful week dear friend :-) hugs, Jen

  6. Hey Kat! You asked where I got my cupcake plates and they're from Pier 1 Imports. A friend gave them to me a couple of years ago - aren't they fun?

    Hope your week is going well.


  7. You sure have so many wonderful pictures and it looked like a fantastically fun day!! I want an ice cream now!


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
