Vacation Recap

I haven't posted in forever and I'm sure everyone missed me.... ha... probably not. Anyhow, I have been on vacation for the last 9 days :) We went to San Fran, Napa, and Monterey CA.

Stop number one: A quick 16 mile run around San Fran. Running over the Golden Gate was fun but windy as hell!!

We then walked all over the city the next two days. Too many pictures to post, but I thought the Full House houses were neat.

Along with the biggest hill ever (35% grade I think) were cars have to snake their way down it.

Next Stop: Alcatraz! Somewhere I have always wanted to go for whatever reason.

I tried to escape, but forgot to get my wet suit smuggled in.

Jason I guess had better luck on the other side of the bars.

After Alcatraz we went to the tourist trap known as Angel Island. Pretty Views of the city and Gold Gate, but not worth it at all.

On our way out of the city, we stopped at Muir Woods - aka Red wood trees and hiking.

We had fun hiking up a mountain and the views were rewarding.

We finally made our way to Napa

Were we tasted wine and road bikes of course.

Don't let the word Napa Valley fool you though, we climbed up a mountain were I thought my legs might fall off. Oh and don't mind Jason's thumb. It's part of the view :)

Our Final stop was in Monterey to visit my old roommate and good friend Jessica.

She took us to 17 mile drive for great ocean views.

Then we made our way to Fisherman's wharf and made friends with the sea lions

One of my favorite things the whole trip was going to the beach in the evening to hang out.

Look at the views

Be over all goofy

And share stories over the fire.

So anyhow, I had a great time and now it's back to real life.

Happy Monday All :)

  6. So fun! My brother and I visited my Aunt in San Fransisco when we were younger and it was a lot of fun! I've been to a lot of the same places you went to :) My husband has never been to California so I would love to go with him sometime, and run across the Golden Gate Bridge.
