I have been living in the Bay Area for 14 years and though I have done a lot of sight seeing when my family and I first moved here, there are still tons of things to do and see. So I spent a day to explore some of the sights my city has to offer.
First on the list was food. We were driving around town and was starting to get hungry when we saw this spot. It was a small donut shop on Noriega Street called, Twisted Donuts and Coffee. It was close to the first spot on our list and well the egg plant purple building caught our attention LOL.
I went and got the Maple Bacon Donut (seen above) and boy was it yummy! They had tons of other options too and the service was good. After eating, we then went of to our first tourist spot on the list called, The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps.
It is a total of 164 tile-designed steps that is in the heart of a residential area. Luckily, there was not a lot of people checking the place out and there were tons of parking. We didn’t go all the away up to the Grand View Park though, which I heard had a great panoramic view of the city (definitely will do that next time!). Below are some other photos from that spot, including my friend G in front of a perfect Instagram background. LOL
We then headed over to the Golden Gate Park where we stopped by the Conservatory of Flowers. It was after 6PM so we didn’t get a chance to go inside but we did take advantage of the beautiful structure and took tons of pictures outside. There were a lot of people hanging out on the grass, playing games and just socializing. Others were strolling, walking their dogs and exploring with their kids.
I really loved seeing people actually out and about instead of cooped up in their homes or on their electronics. One man was even under this bridge (below) and was singing “Hallelujah”. His voice was so beautiful and I enjoyed it very much. Too bad he walked away after one song.
Last stop was walking around Stow Lake, which is also in Golden Gate Park. The sun was setting so we took a quick stroll and took some pics. See some shots below.
I loved these golden hour shots of me, G and the trees. So beautiful!
It was a long but lovely mini-adventure. I can’t wait for what’s in store next!!
