San Francisco Sunday

What a relief it was to pop down to San Francisco yesterday and enjoy the 70 degrees and sunny weather. I know, I’m always complaining about the heat here, but can you blame me? It’s been up around 100 degrees for many days now! Uggh. But yesterday, I got to go down to San Francisco and do many wonderful things as well as appreciate the fine coastal weather!

Stop number one was the San Francisco Renegade Craft Fair at the Fort Mason Center.

The show was in a cavernous building right on the pier, with so many gorgeous crafts, I forgot to take pictures as I oohed and ahhed. It was kind of like Etsy in the flesh! Check out their website to see if there’s a location near you—it’s definitely worth a visit.

I bought this gorgeous little letterpress card from Sycamore Street Press—I wish you could see it in person because, since it’s letterpressed, not only can you see the design, but you can feel it on the paper!

After Renegade, we went over to North Beach (San Francisco’s Little Italy) and had pizza at a great pizzaby the slice place that I’ve been to several times, called Golden Boy Pizza:

They have mean, giant slices that you can eat at a bar—it’s a great hole-in-the-wall place on Green Street, just off of Columbus. They aren’t messing around here—they do pizza, and they do it well!

The whole purpose of this trip was to visit with some old college friends I haven’t seen in a while, so once we were all assembled, we went on a jaunt up Telegraph Hill. Here we are at the top:

You might be able to guess which one I am, as I’m the only girl. And another beautiful view of the bay:

What a wonderful day! Here’s to old friends, arts & crafts, pizza, and cool coastal weather!
