I want to start by giving a big shout out to Mum, who turns 21 today!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MUM! You’re the greatest and I hope you have a lovely day
Last week , we had the most amazing weather here in San Francisco, in a city renown for its fog. The sun shone for hours, and I relished putting on shorts for the first time this season. The warmth of the sun on my skin felt so good, I just hope there’s many more days like this to come…
I have been so caught up in work (and am starting to think ‘workaholic’ is my middle name), so I have recently been extricating myself and trying to consciously enjoy the moments of my life here in a city I really love.
One day last week, we randomly piled into the car and chased the sun all the way down Geary. We wound up at the Sutro Baths to watch the last five minutes of the sun as it descended into the Pacific. I love unplanned adventures that make my spirit soar.
After I slept in and missed netball on Saturday (sorry ladies!), we spent Saturday arvo hiking the first half of our proposed Geary walk (from Market Street to the Ocean), discovered the rest of our street over the other side of Van Ness, stumbled upon some new neighbourhoods and just enjoyed the freedom of being able to wander wherever it is our boots took us.
In the evening. we watched the Hitchcock classic ‘Vertigo‘ (what a FREAK Jimmy Stewart’s character is! But that’s a whole other post…), and then wandered around our own neighbourhood of Nob Hill the following day, trying to find all the buildings referenced in the film.
There’s some amazing places right here on Nob Hill with ornate entryways and rooftop decks and courtyards with afternoon sun, if money was no object… it’s pretty awesome I call this neighbourhood ‘home’.
So what have you been up to?
