What a trip! It was so wonderful to be in California for the last week of summer, even if it was a bit of a whirlwind vacation. It’s so easy to get back into the swing of things while we’re there–it just feels like home!
We spent a few days in San Francisco as Jeff was there for a chemistry conference. I took advantage of having my days free to visit family and shop and eat my way through the city, which was pretty much perfection!
One of our first stops, as per usual, was the ferry building. I’m obsessed with all of the cute shops and handcrafted, local items. And, of course, we had to have lunch at Mijita overlooking the bay. I had the Mijita quesadilla: Mexico city style fresh masa turn-over with a mixture of Mexican cheeses, epazote and roasted chiles, fried, topped with salsa and guacamole.
It’s pretty much one of the most amazing creations ever!
Jeff’s family also came to visit while we were there, so we took a ride on the classic cable cars to Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39. We also had a few pre-dinner drinks + snacks at Neptune’s to take in the gorgeous ocean front view of Alcatraz.
After a few nights in SF, we headed to San Luis Obispo to visit friends and old haunts–stay tuned for an update on Friday!
