As I’m sitting here in my nice cool house dreading going outside because we’ve hit yet ANOTHER day of 100+ degree temps (think this makes 60+ days of 100+ temps so far this summer) I often find myself daydreaming about being back in California again. The hubby and I took a trip to Napa Valley & San Francisco last month to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary which is coming up in September and oh my, I just loved it out there. Although it did get quite warm in Napa, generally the temps were still much cooler than what we have to endure here in south Texas and the foliage & landscape there was certainly much prettier & greener than what we have to look at here thanks to the drought. As we drove into San Francisco from Napa, we watched the temps dip down 30 degrees on the car thermometer within the short drive which was pretty freaky I must say! Sure enough, we got out of the car at the top of a hill near the Golden Gate bridge and it was fa-reezing!! Even though the winds were whipping us around and were quite intense I was secretly thinking about how nice it was to be COLD again. We spent 3 days in San Francisco and I don’t think the temperature ever got above 75 degrees but was typically much cooler than that. Ahhhhhhhh!! Along w/the cool temps came the clouds & fog so we never really had a nice clear view of the bay or bridge but the fog did provide a lovely backdrop for the Golden Gate I suppose, VERY San Francisco. Was looking back through some shots from our trip to reminisce and thought I’d share some with you too. Enjoy.
