San Francisco Staycation Recap

san-francisco-staycation-almost-getting-it-together

I have so many good photos from A’s trip to SF which I promise I’ll be posting but I want to use them for Field Trip posts, etc. Also I have a lot of raw photos and I’m real lazy and don’t want to edit them and know if I keep putting of this post it won’t even be timely anymore so I just need to do it now.

Here are A BUNCH of iPhone photos from my San Francisco Staycation. It’s weird that I’ve traveled less in the past four months that I’ve been living here than basically ever but when there is so much to explore in your city, you never really need to leave. Plus it’s not like I have awful weather to escape. (But, rest assured – trips to Austin and Portland booked for the upcoming months – and likely an extended trip home.)

Thanks to the snow storm back east, A’s trip was extended by a couple days. We did a lot of my favorite SF runs – my daily Marina run, Golden Gate Park, Land’s End, ate at a lot of restaurants on my list – Lazy Bear, Pink Zebra, Nopa and Marlowe, and soaked up the California sun.

Lazy Bear. Full recap coming tomorrow!

After geeking out about how much I loved Scribe, we went back up on Thursday afternoon.

Omakase Bar at Pink Zebra. This guy had salmon roe instead of shrimp roe because #death.

The first time I ran at Land’s End I knew I wanted to bring A here to run.

Forcing A to take selfies at Land’s End.

End of the trail at Land’s End. Irony? Also I wear the dorkiest running socks ever because if not I get awful blood blisters. TMI? Probably.

I’m not sure whether A came to see me or came to drink sour beer at The Rare Barrel but I’ll take it.

san-francisco-staycation-almost-getting-it-together

The Rare Barrel – sour beers are my jam. If you live in the Bay and like beer or wine – go.

You can tell I used to take behind the scenes photos on Instagram for a living.

Nopalito. This guac is for you, Em.

Starting Valentine’s Day with a run through the ‘hood.

Every Saturday I think I’ll stop at the Philz Truck and this Saturday I actually did stop at the Philz Truck. Mint Mojito Iced Coffee.

A is super into things in cans so we took canned wine hiking at Pt. Reyes. We did have to drive across town to find a wine store that carried this.

One or both of us dropped lens caps off a dock. I don’t think we can blame the canned wine.

Take-out Les Rois Thai after a long day of hiking, looking at elk and the ocean. Seedy Asian food on traditionally romantic holidays has become our thing. See also: New Year’s Eve.

Being real life San Franciscans and standing in line for things, i.e. Bi-Rite Creamery. Which was my third ice cream trip of the week.

His and hers Nikes waiting for an Uber to go to Barcade when I unexpectedly got A for a couple extra days thanks to the crappy weather back East.

I agree with Erin about your shoe game – I love your strappy brown sandals. If someone came to visit me we’d do all the non-Disney things possible. Because Orlando is more than Disney (shocking, I know).

Oh man, I love staycations! I agree with you, sour beers are amazing. I love lambic beers (especially Lindeman’s framboise), and I’ve been wanting to try Underwood wine for a while now, but I don’t think it’s available anywhere near me. Love all of the shoes that you’re wearing in this post, by the way. I think the running socks are cute! =)

True story: Before I host visitors, I type out a detailed itinerary, make our dining reservations weeks in advance and give them outfit suggestions for each activity. I LOVE visitors. And I would agree that there is so much to see in the Bay Area, it’s almost like you have less of a need to travel. Love the pics!

Oh my gosh. I’m so jealous. I love San Fran, and I’d sure love to be soaking up some warm sunshine right about now. You looked like you were having so much fun on your “trip,” and I definitely wish I could have jumped into a few of your photos! You wear some pretty nice shoes out there in CA.

I’m going to have to remember these places for my next journey out West. My man also loves beer, and hikes, so I’ll have to take him to some of them!
