Cooking, baking, whimsy and perspective, from an itty-bitty kitchen
I left my heart….in San Fransisco…
The city of golden opportunities. The land of high-tech and young faces. The land of bright hopes and start-up companies. The Manhattan of the west. That is the feel for the city I had while I was visiting my daughter this cold July week.
Beware. This post is mostly pictures and is long. But I couldn’t leave out any of these photos. Each one is its own story.
My son and I just returned from our little vacation to the bay area. My daughter lives in San Fransisco as you probably already know. We had a wonderful time! Since cars are not very practical, she had sold her cute little bug and so we did a lot of hoofing it. As well as using zip cars (renting local cars for around town), cabs, Lyfts, buses, trolleys, subways and cable cars. We walked for miles and have now seen most of the city up close and personal. And I have legs of steel. But a few days at home sitting here at my desk should cure that. Unless I get out and WALK!
Well, pictures tell a thousand words, so here you go…
Almost every little store there was a mini Whole foods. Good milks and cheeses, organic everything, fresh breads, some butchers shops. I only went to one actual bakery and I was so excited I forgot to get pictures. Bah!
I liked it better. Fewer crowds, no hills. Cleaner. I highly recommend it.
One last photo…
A big thank you to our wonderful tour guide who had the patience to take us to the touristy places and the creativity to take us to the unusual places as well. Thank you Jess! There are more pictures, but I figure only my mother and maybe a couple other relatives would have waded through this far as it is.
So now you have a general idea of whats in store for you if you make a trip to the Golden city. My next trip to the bay area I would like to make a farm trip, visiting some more well known dairies (Organic Pastures) and farms. California’s best creameries, dairies, and organic farms are up there. Lets go!
