Sunny San Francisco...

With an extra long weekend in the works, four friends packed their bags and headed south! What a beautiful weekend we had exploring San Francisco, and a little bit of Santa Cruz. After this weekend, I can 100% say, San Francisco is my choice of a city! It is so quaint, romantic and above all has the most vibrant social atmosphere. I have to get back!

Our first day, three French teachers and one Phys-ed teacher roamed the town, checking out all the sites San Fran has to offer! Stopping off at Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard St, China Town, and Nob Hill were just some of the cool destinations we caught eye of. At night, we met up with Adam's friends, Shannon Falcone who is part of team Oracle and a super sweet guy, and Paddleboarder Chase Kosterlitz from Team Fanatic. One of the best paddleboarders in the world! Both Shannon and Chase were involved in the RedBull FlugTag the next day.

The girls knew we weren't coming this far and not tasting some Sanoma wine, and the boys were pretty excited to do the same. We chose a tour company called Extranomical Tours and had a wonderful tour guide, Ben, who gave us a traditional Californian tour! He was amazing and I highly recommend him for his knowledge and positive attitude! Our tour consisted of stopping at the beautiful Golden gate bridge, Muir Woods, and three different wineries. Cline Cellars was delicious! The day couldn't have gone better, and to top it off, Adam and I hopped aboard a ferry in Sausalito to get some shots of the city at night - GORGEOUS!

We finished our trip with a rental car further down the coast to the lovely beaches of Santa Cruz where we saw the sealions and stunning coast line. What a trip!
