Oakland is Juiced

Last week, when we had a few days of sun, my friend and I walked to Super Juiced for a late afternoon treat.

They are located in Old Oakland, in the back of a courtyard. They have homemade nut milks, acai bowls, smoothies, juices and other snacks.

and that decor… so cute!

Valencia Peak – Montana de Oro

For one last bit of steeze we hiked up to Valencia Peak Saturday morning. Epic views and a bit of elevation gain led to an amazing hike. valenciapeaktrailvpmorrorockfromvpvalenciapeak

Met a really cool couple on the trail ( who took this pic of us at the top) They were in their 60s and training to hike into the Grand Canyon with their grand Daughter. The husband hikes every Saturday morning before sunrise, lets talk about goals!besties-onvalenciapeak

After our hike, we went in to Morro Bay for coffee and an Acai bowl!acaibowl

What an amazing few days on the Central Coast… filled with hikes and brews I really couldn’t ask for anything more!

Free FALLin’

Ohhh boy… I am in total free fall for Fall! 

Spent the last weekend visiting my parents in SLO town. Image

Dayummmm look at those vineyards and foothills…. so gorge.  Why did I leave this area? Times like these when I am riding on the back of my Pops motorbike through rolling vineyards I don’t know why I did… but nonetheless it is always a joy to return, especially during the Fall time! 

Well my Dad and I went to a sweet little cafe by the train station in SLO… Sally Loo’s…where you could get anything to eat and it would be good BUT you should get the ACAI Bowl and forever be changed. Yes, I said it  life changing.  So go get you some.

After getting my fill of this sweet treat… the fam and I went down south about an hour to do a little hiking and also visit the Firestone Taproom in Buellton.

First, we headed to the Bradbury Dam Vista Point right by Lake Cachuma and took a little trail that went up and down and all around the dam for a total of about 6 miles round trip.  Then we refueled at the Firestone Taproom – go try it, if you haven’t! If you are in Paso or Buellton not only should you taste some deliciously hoppy beer, but also try the amazzzing food! Honestly, Firestone is one of my fav breweries but don’t take my word for it…GO!
