Trip to the Shore

Brent surprised me with a Sunday outing to the beautiful coastal town of Pt. Reyes. There is nothing a little drive out of town to the shore with some sun fog won’t do to clear your head.

Although it was extremely foggy, it was a truly gorgeous site. There are rolling hills covered in grazing dairy cows, creeks leading the path to the Pacific and jagged cliffs lining the shore as far as your eyes can see.

IMG_3146IMG_3142My love of cheese is what first put Pt. Reyes on the map of places I must visit and when I realized Cow Girl Creamery was based there as well, there was no question as to where we’d be stopping.

We ended our trip with dinner in Santa Rosa. We’ve always loved visiting breweries together and sharing a sampler; so we ended our anniversary weekend how we started out six years ago, over a brew.

Summer Solstice and Weekend Plans

Summer_solstice_stonehengeHappy First day of Summer!  I hope you all have amazing plans this weekend filled with lots of outdoor activities!  Which reminds me, Brent and I REALLY need to get a BBQ.  He cleaned our back porch and we now have room.  Hooray!

This weekend we don’t have too many set plans other than a dinner with friends at Piperade tomorrow night.  We might also try and get some pool time and drink a few of these in honor of the solstice.  A Sunday day trip over to Santa Cruz for a hike on the beach might be in order as well. This one looks fun and we can take Daisy!

Here are some other fun things happening around the Bay:

I swear we will make it to next year’s Sierra Nevada Music Festival.  I’ve been wanting to go FOREVER!

If you’re in the East Bay and in need of a little culture, check out the 10th Annual Berkeley World Music Festival.

Film of the Month:  Where the Wild Things Are at the Disney Museum.  And while you are there, you should check out the Down the Rabbit Hole exhibit.

Brent misses surfing in Florida and down in the (tad-bit) warmer So. Cal waters.  It might be too cold up here, but we can watch from the shore at the 19th Annual Surf City Classic in Santa Cruz

Last week I mentioned the SF Jazz Festival and now Stanford is kicking off their season with Herbie Hancock.

And here’s whats happening around the World:

Countries around the world are celebrating the Summer Solstice.  This morning, There was a particularly large celebration happening at Stonehenge.
