At the end of last year, one of my best friends made the effort to plan a trip every month. Booking sites, getting permits etc… I have been lucky enough to share a few of these trips with her.
Last Saturday morning my friends and I left Oak/SF before 8 am to head up to Petaluma, got sandwiches at the Petaluma Market Deli, then onto the Bear Valley Visitors Center to collect our permits and then to Marshall beach to launch.
We rented kayaks from Blue Water Kayaks, great experience and they have dry bags, wet suits and tie downs if you need them. We used the wet suits when we kayaked later in the afternoon but it was warm enough not to need them. We left Marshalls beach around 12 pm.
I didn’t take my camera out all of Saturday, so these pics are all from Sunday morning before we got back to Marshalls beach around 12.
The tide came up really high in the early morning. We all thought we were going to be underwater, luckily that didn’t happen!
I would love to come out here again! It was a really fun overnight.
Whenever we are in the area we have to hit Wild Flour. The most delicious and fresh baked bread.
The most delicious and fresh baked bread. Cash only so please be prepared otherwise you will be bummin’ hard. We love the Fougasse and the Cinnamon Bread.
What a delicious end to a fun and relaxing weekend!
I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite things that I have been loving this past week so that you may have the chance to enjoy them as well or at least be inspired to try something new.
My NEW all time favorite place to go for a latte is Illy. Especially on a rainy day after a hellacious week at work. I don’t know how I walked by this place for almost two years without going in, however I won’t dwell on that fact but rather make the most of experiencing the delicioushness as long as I can now that I know about it! If you have one near you – PLEASE – try it and if you don’t have one visit somewhere that does and make a point to latte it up. My fav flavor is Lavender Mint ( major yum ) but I also love the Vanilla Clove… uh oh now Im really craving one of these luscious lattes.
Cake Tasting at Sweet Adelines in Berkeley in preparation for my friend’s wedding. It was such a fun experience and the staff was SO wonderful… oh and the cake was REAL good. My choice was the carrot cake.
This amazing tree blooming in our backyard. I looked outside one day and it was bloomin’ and it was beautiful and exciting and sprintimey… and then the next week it was storming but at least we still have the tree.
Only the coolest dog park EVA, Point Isabel in Richmond. Like literally dog haven and human haven if you love dogs.
Finally, I whipped up a sweet treat to share with y’all that hopefully you can enjoy with a loved one this Valentines Day! ( I will be sharing the recipe on Wednesday)
