Days in the Bay

I kicked off the start of fall with a road trip to Santa Cruz and San Francisco for a wedding and some good old fashioned sightseeing (and shopping, naturally)! Highlights from my travels include these activities which I highly recommend: 

1. browsing the well-stocked shelves at City Lights Bookstore on Columbus and Broadway
2. taking in the sights at the colorful boardwalk in Santa Cruz
3. indulging in tasty crepes from Crepe Express on Haight Street in between scouring the secondhand shops and appreciating the surrounding Victorian architecture
4. enjoying tea, cucumber sandwiches, and pastel-hued rice cakes at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park 
5. a leisurely stroll through the scenic San Francisco Botanical Gardens
6. browsing new arrivals at the H&M flagship on Powell St. and then hopping across the street to Uniqlo for well-made basics like ankle zip denim and silk button-front blouses
7. admiring the views of the bay and the city skyline while walking along the Embarcadero
