#fbf Lombard St. aka Crookedest Street
#fbf to when I was in San Francisco last week and visited Lombard Street.
Did you have to cancel summer travel plans due to the pandemic? I was supposed to go to Ireland in July and had to cancel that, unfortunately. I was literally supposed to leave next week – on the 3rd or 4th I believe. I’m hoping to at least do a weekend trip somewhere, maybe in the New England area since it’s driving distance from me. If you haven’t heard, New Jersey (where I live), New York, and Connecticut announced a joint travel advisory. Anyone traveling to one of these 3 neighboring states from a state with high COVID rates has to quarantine for 14 days. So if I were to…
#fbf Martha’s Vineyard
Sharing another flashback Friday today. So many people have been sharing throwbacks lately, back when times were simpler and more carefree. With it about to be Memorial Day Weekend, things are feeling extra strange. Normally, the holiday weekend is the unofficial kickoff to summer. Lots of barbecues, people going to the beach, opening up their pools etc. But, here in NJ, we’re still pretty much in lockdown even though very few restrictions have been eased. Beaches are open now, but social distancing has to be practiced and capacity is limited. State parks are open, but again the same restrictions apply. Non-essential retail is allowed to reopen for curbside pickup only…
#fbf View from Angel Island
Happy Friday! I could use a vacation right about now, but that’s not happening so I’ll settle for a flashback Friday in the form of a photo from my vacation to San Francisco back in August. This is a view from Angel Island. How amazing would it be to live in one of those houses across the water? Okay, that’s about all the pretending I can do since there’s still a day of work to get through before the weekend!
Lombard St., Painted Ladies, & Golden Gate Bridge
I have to start this post off with a disclaimer that this is an extremely picture heavy post. I tried to narrow it down, but there were too many good ones! And trust me, I have about 3 times more photos from each day of vacation than what actually makes it on here! On our last full day in San Francisco, we went to 3 tourist stops we didn’t get a chance to get to yet in the city. Oddly enough this was our first day of the trip that we stayed in San Francisco the whole day! When we first arrived it was already late afternoon so I don’t…
Monterey, Carmel, & 17 Mile Drive
Happy Wednesday! I hope your week’s going well so far. I got back from my trip to California on Monday night, but I’ve still got some travel posts coming your way. Today, we cover my day trip to Monterey, Carmel, and the scenic 17-mile drive. On Saturday morning we went on another day trip tour with Gray Line. This time on a drive down part of the California coast. Years ago when I visited San Francisco, my family and I drove down the coast via the Pacific Coast Highway over the course of 2 days down to LA and Disneyland so we saw a lot more of the coast. On…
