Newer Bucket List (Summer) Additions

15 May

As I’ve slowly been ticking off my bucket list this year, I’ve been more inspired than ever to add more things and places to the list.  It’s been such a blessing to be able to conquer some of my bucket list with people very near and dear to me.  It has also been an incredible amount of fun.  I’ve found that simply just putting these things on the said “list” has put more of the ideas to life than I could have imagined.  Anyway, here are a few more I’ve added to my list lately.

Bike ride across the Golden Gate!  OK, this is probably the most realistic out of my recent adds and surprising I’ve never done it but I have always had a small fear of actually riding a bike in the city.  There are many more bike paths by the bridge though, therefore, I will conquer this soon 🙂 (photo)

White water rafting!  I’ve been rafting in a float-down-a-calm-river sort of way but never adventurously.  This seems like a must.  (photo)

Bali, Indonesia has also been added to my list of places to see.  Naturally, this isn’t happening this summer but maybe next – who knows!  (photo)

What’s on your bucket list?  I love reading other people’s.  It’s so inspiring.  Have a wonderful day!

I love this city

With another beautiful weekend, you know I had a hard time staying indoors.  The best place to be is outside when the weather is in your favor.  It was a very close friend’s (Brie) birthday on Saturday so I swooped her and a few other friends up and we headed to the beach.  This beach is pretty iconic in San Francisco and you’re about to see why.  Baker Beach is known for it’s stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge and dog friendly sands.  There was no fog and the sand was like a warm blanket underneath our bodies.  I couldn’t have asked for a better Cinco de Mayo!

Dog’s were frolicking every just so happy to be enjoying the sun, water and tennis balls being thrown for them.  There’s nothing like watching a happy dog, living the life : )

Tuckey even went swimming!  He wasn’t the only brave one.  The water is ferociously cold but there were many brave swimmers on this warm day.

A huge freighter passing through.

Perfect day.

To help get you through this mid-work week day, I leave you with a good summer jam.  Hope you’re having a great week!

When it rains, it doesn’t always pour in San Francisco

With the on and off rain over the weekend, it was so hard to tell how the weather was going to be day by day.  Saturday the rain was coming down pretty good and then Sunday the clouds parted long enough for my friend, Kelsey, and I to go exploring.  We planned on a short little walk and some catch up time and four hours later we were still exploring!  She lives in such a wonderful part of the city with access to so much.  Here are some photos from our city walk in between the light rains of the weekend.

It was so calm in the harbors and I loved the reflections on the water.

All of the plants and flowers are happy to have some water.

The Golden Gate.  We saw a seal just floating along right out in these waters.

A freight liner moving out.

An adorable tug boat leaving the harbor.

We walked out to the end of the Yacht Club Pier to watch the sail boat racing.  It was a bunch of middle or high school kids racing so all of their parents were out on this pier cheering their kids on.  It was really cool to see.  The weather isn’t always predictable here but there’s always something great to see!

A place to see it all

This past weekend I went into the city to see my friends and go on a mini-adventure.  My friends, Lacey and Shannon, took me up to Twin Peaks to fully experience a beautiful San Francisco sunset and it was one of the most beautiful views of San Francisco I’ve ever seen.  Here’s my photo review of Twin Peaks’ gorgeous panoramic look out.

Full moon!

Golden Gate Bridge.

This bird was just hovering taking it all in, too 🙂

Enjoy!

Our fellow blogger, Joseph, has an incredible photo editing ability.  I really LOVED this photo of his and he was keen on my SF over-head shots so I said take the reins and make what you’d like of my photos from this previous post of mine.  What he came up with was absolutely brilliant.  Goes to show that different people are talented in so many different ways.  Below was his end result and make sure to check out his blog if you like these photos because he has many of his own creations there!
