I love this city

9 May

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!

Is winter finally on it’s way to the Sierras?!

I spent the weekend with my friends in Tahoe again and it was beyond beautiful.  It’s a tad eerie though, the lacking amount of snow that they have for this time of year.  After a sunny, beautiful snowboarding day at Sugarbowl on Saturday just playing in the slush, we took a scenic route home winding down towards Donner Lake.

The views of Donner Lake are so beautiful.

After a fun filled snowboard day on Saturday, we headed to Reno for another Monster Truck show!  We are on a roll, these things are literally so awesome.  However, we didn’t realize how good we had it last time when we saw them in Oakland.  The Reno venue was much smaller which didn’t allow for any rolls or mass destruction of machinery.  They did have much better in-between racing which included little dune trucks and dirt bike jumping!  I’ll post pictures from that soon 🙂

  On Sunday, I enjoyed a nice lunch with Em and then went to the Lake to shoot some photos of the storm coming in.  The colors really light up and contrast over amazing Lake Tahoe.  I think there may actually be some snow finally coming in this week and that’s great news for Tahoe.  I can’t wait to see and hear what becomes of this upcoming storm!

At this point, little snow pellets were flying towards me as the winds picked up.

It’s weird to see sand and not snow on the beaches this time of year!

Hopefully there is a huge storm about to blanket the Sierras and if so you bet I’ll be back there to make some turns and take some photos.

Sorry about my post on Friday, I was trying to embed the Kony 2012 video but was having technical difficulties.  None the less, check it out – it’s pretty amazing the change one person can make.

Happy Monday!
