Weekend Wrap - Up


     I had a very full and busy weekend and wanted to share a few highlights of it with you.
                              The weekend was gorgeous with perfect weather.
                           I adored the grouping of these gorgeous palm trees in SF.


                                 Took a ferry ride and loved looking at The Golden Gate Bridge.
                                                                 Not a bad view in sight.


                                                   City landscape, nothing short of awesome.


                                                   Enjoyed a day at a Giants baseball game.
                                      What a view and I soaked up the sun and had a margarita.
                                                           It was Cinco de Mayo after all.


                     Made a quick stop in San Jose and went to Falafel's Drive In and had a
                falafel pita and a banana milkshake. I would have taken pics but it was so good
                                       that I did not have time to break out the camera.
                                                                                                           

                                        Went to Marin and had the best BBQ chicken sandwich-
                                                with garlic parsley fries. A plate of perfection.


                                 Stopped by Laetitia Winery....if you haven't had their wines you must.
                                                                 Pinot Noir is my favorite.


                                                      Wine Vines are so gorgeous!!

          There you have it.....A quick round up of my busy weekend. I hope yours was great.

  9. Hi Val! Thanks so very much for sharing the photos of your great weekend. Going to San Francisco and the wine country is on my bucket list and now you have given me fun ideas of what to do once I get there. Did you recently change your blog design? I have to go now and look at the beautiful photos I just saw of your "Watermelon Margaritas" that I saw in your post before this one...they look yummy.
