Out & About

Bay Bridge & SF

Rem and I have enjoyed a few local outings after Christmas.  We remind ourselves that we live in an area that has so much to offer and we just need to get out and enjoy it.  These first photos are from the Sausalito waterfront, looking towards San Francisco and the Bay Bridge, which we visited on the 26th.  It was a beautiful day and warm enough that some folks were in shorts.

Shorts 12/26

Unfortunately, I did something stupid last night and cut the index finger on my left hand so I’m not going to put much narrative.  I’m glad that I’ve already done a bunch of crafting during this lovely time off.

Lots of People

We heard at least half-a-dozen different languages as we strolled around.

On the 30th, we went into San Francisco and strolled around the Mission District, happily eating on our way, though I didn’t get any good food photos.  We started with pastries from Dianda’s Italian American Pastry.  Then walked to Mission Market for pupusa’s.

This Chinese Lion is in Mission Chinese Food where we shared a small plate of Tiki Pork Belly.  Incredible, rich and wonderful with a side of rice.  We took leftovers home.  It was quite dark inside so the picture didn’t come out, but it comes with a wedge of pickled pineapple, mandarin orange segments, shaved coconut, macadamia nuts, a puddle of soy caramel on the plate, a maraschino cherry and a small, yellow paper umbrella!

Peace to you in this sparkling new year.

The only advice I will offer at this juncture is to unplug your immersion blender before using your finger to scrape off the whipped cream.

Thank you, as always, for reading.
