California through our eyes.

Our trip to San Fransisco and the Monterey Bay area was so fun & I was so amazed at all we were able to do & see during our time there. 

Ben obliged me on our first day, as we strode along Union Square by going to Britex Fabrics with me.  Four stories of wall to wall fabric.  Complete bliss.

We did the touristy thing & rode the cable cars around San Fran to see all the fun sights like the Cable Car Museum, Lombard St., Fisherman's Wharf, & more. 

The Ferry Building near Fisherman's Wharf was one of our favorite stops at the Wharf.  Local artisans pack out the place with delicious local foods, handmade treasures & more.  I am pretty sure I had the best Vanilla steamer made from local milk.  Ever.

Boudin's was our stop for San Fransisco Sourdough & it did not disappoint :)

Monterey, Carmel & Big Sur were our next stops--I could have spent weeks exploring this area..or maybe I will just make it my goal to live there someday.  Either way, it was gorgeous. 

We did the 17 mile drive through Pebble Beach & saw seals, the Lone Cypress & so many other natural wonders.

Hiking through the cliffside beaches of Big Sur was just as breathtaking.  We even ate our lunch overlooking the cliffside beaches.  Heavenly.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium & Nemo.


 And back to the Golden Gate where we said good bye to sunny CA, for now :)
