there is something really fun about showing off a place you love to a friend you love. over labor day weekend, dear amy became my first visitor to sf - first of many, many to come i hope!
we explored the haight,
and were enchanted by the marina in the evening fog.
then, we squealed over enormously delicious ice cream from bi-rite
after an exquisitely tasty dinner at burma superstar
with my new and dear friends katie and lizzy.
we biked across the golden gate bridge!
it was so foggy which made it super magical.
i was literally yelling with delight and pumping my fist at bikers passing on our left.
my wonderful new friend stephanie was our tour guide - in 2009 she biked the bridge every single month! how rad it that - and also how cool is it that we were twinners in our green jackets?
we loooooved our afternoon in devastatingly charming sausalito,
which included ginormous hamburgers and great ice cream.
and we took the ferry back to sf. glorious beyond glorious.
we biked through downtown to union square a did a little shopping.
we spend a sunny sunday morning in golden gate park,
enjoyed clear views from twin peaks after church,
blissfully watched the sunset at baker beach,
and reveled in the magic of watching the ggb light up
as the stars came out and the waves crashed.
and a trip to ghiradelli square!
we discovered this graffiti alley in the mission (so cool!) -
of course amy fish had to have a picture with the fish!
we had dinner at the very well-reviewed pizzeria delfina
with some girls from the ward and our dear friend missy
(missy and i went to high school together, and she and her hubby just moved to san fran!-
i am so excited they are here!)
