Two of the greatest loves in my life: dogs and California. Most of the time when I take vacation, I am either on vacation with my dogs or I'm in California. I lived in southern CA for 3 years (see the blog post dated 5/19/15). This past week, I spent a few days in northern CA near the San Francisco area. We drove into the city for the day which isn't something we typically do but we thought we'd be tourists for a few hours. We went to the aquarium, Ghirardelli (and yesterday I finished off the last of the sea salt and almond chocolate bar that I bought), and Lombard Street. We called in an order for take out Chinese which we had for dinner. Last Saturday was a fun day. I love, love, LOVE California. The two things I love best: how pretty it is and the weather. I am one of the few people who likes both southern and northern CA. Most people (particularly the ones who live there) prefer one over the other. I am not biased. I love them both.
On my first morning there, I was up early because I was still on east coast time. I walked down to the water and snapped a lot of pictures. It was a typical hazy CA morning but I didn't mind at all. I was actually cold (which I also didn't mind at all!!) I appreciate any non-humid, cooler day I can in May - September. I don't get many of them in Charlotte.
Here are a few of my favorite pics from that day and of course, a pic of Em. I couldn't leave her out!!
