Hike with a View

Just because it is Friday and I know it is still very cold elsewhere in the country, I thought I would share some pictures of beautiful northern California. We took a little hike recently and were treated to these views and trees. The stunning cliffs, the tall trees, and beautiful Pacific Ocean still continue to amaze […]

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve

Over the weekend we met up with our good friends for lunch and they suggested we check out the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve north of Half Moon Bay in Moss Beach. The reserve is known for its tidepool creatures! It is best to visit the reserve during low tide, which exposes the rocks and you will […]

Holidays at The Lodge at Pebble Beach

I have shared with you my many trips and love of Carmel and Monterey. I just can’t get enough of 17-Mile Drive and any opportunity to visit Carmel, I am there. Before we completely leave the holiday season, we took a visit to The Lodge at Pebble Beach in December with my parents. Of course, […]

Cosentino Winery in Napa Valley

We had a wonderful holiday visit to one of my favorite vineyards in Yountville, California. My parents were in town and it was fun to take them for a wine tasting (see my dad and his fabulous glasses below!) at Cosentino. Cosentino Winery has both red and white wines to try in an intimate tasting room. They are […]

Pizzeria Delfina Palo Alto

Looking for a great pizza spot in Palo Alto? Well look no further because Pizzeria Delfina is a great spot with delicious New York and Neapolitan-style pizza. This restaurant is farmer-to-table style, family owned, and has a seasonal menu. There are three other locations, one in Burlingame and two in San Francisco. The Palo Alto location […]

Gayle’s Bakery in Capitola

    I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My sister flew into town and we had such a fun day Saturday shopping at Macy’s. This was the sale to catch! We scored deeply discounted new fall boots, jackets, and some items for baby. Well, we have been in the Bay Area over a year and not […]

101 In 1001 Days

    It has been awhile since I have updated my 101 in 1001 list exploring Northern California. Since my last post, I completed four more things on my list. Being a huge football fan, we attended two football games, saw Katy Perry in concert, and I joined a club over the last six weeks. See […]

17-Mile Drive {Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, California}

The 17-Mile Drive is one of my favorite road trips in Northern California. Enjoying this scenic drive is easy as there are endless, stunning views of the water and coastline. This area is also known for its famous golf courses, the gorgeous homes, and the Lone Cypress. You can end or start your drive in the quaint […]

Two Hours in Sausalito

  Last week when my sister and her husband were here for a visit, we went to Sausalito for the afternoon. It was my first time there and the weather was perfect for an afternoon exploring the town. Sausalito is smaller than I had expected and there are a few shops and art galleries, but mostly […]

East Coast Visitors

My sister and her husband are coming to visit this week! We love having family visit and doing touristy things because this area is still so new to us. We have a nice itinerary planned with a mix of relaxation, think pool and spa time, and sight-seeing! We made dinner reservations, have tickets to the 49ers […]
