Eating Our Way Through San Francisco

Happy first of the month!

Since we’re already thinking of the four day weekend ahead, today’s post will be short and sweet.

Early last month I went to San Francisco for work and pleasure. It turned out to be a trip that opened my eyes to a much healthier way of living. When I arrived, the first couple of days were filled with fog so we hung out at coffee shops, strolled around the city, yoga, and ate really good gluten and dairy free food. I’ll admit I didn’t do any planning for this trip as I normally would. So much of what I know about SF are the ridiculous attractions that are easily googled but not really worth seeing. I am so thankful for my friend who lives in the city and showed me around her favorite spots!

After a couple of days in the city we made our way out north to Marin County to Hog Island Oyster Farm for fresh oysters. We stopped by Point Reyes Station to pick up a map (since we had a couple of hours to kill before we needed to be at Hog Island). There was a nice gal at a gas station who told us to check out some trails and pointed to Pierce Point Road. “This road”, she said, “will lead you to the end of the bay where you’ll have to walk the rest of the way to the end of the national park”. As we drove pass Tomales Bay,  I saw a small path leading to an open horizon, so we pulled over and there it was, the shipwreck I’ve read about but had no clue where to find it! Heaven!

As we continued on the main road, the morning haze cleared and we were left with blue skies and miles of open farm fields.

The rest of the trip was a dream and I think the photos will tell a better story than my ramblings.

Have a wonderfully short work week and a safe and fun 4th!

Places I ate in the city | Mama’s for crab benedict’s | Tartine Bakery for morning buns and coffee |  Bi-Rite Market and Bi-Rite Creamery for the Vegan Chocolate Coconut ice cream | Beretta for organic cocktails and for food, just about everything | Cowgirl Creamery | and currently sipping on some Blue Bottle Coffee

P.S. Now that I think about it, these are such hot spots so maybe I was a tourist after all. Oh well says my happy tummy.
