sittin' on the dock of the bay...

Matthew is in San Francisco this week for work (lucky thing). I'd love to visit California. So instead of doing the laundry, the hoovering, making the beds and getting the groceries (blah, blah, blah), I'm sitting here dreaming of things that I would do if I were in San Francisco today...


First thing on my mind would be some sight seeing (hoping that it's not too foggy, I think its not a great time of year to be visiting San Francisco, but as I'm only dreaming...its a beautiful sunny, crisp, clear winter's day...dreaming remember)...




I'd find some lovely old Queen Anne Victorian's to drool over...

the Painted Ladies of Postcard Row


I'd take a ride on a cable car...haven't you always wanted to do that? I have...

I'd have to go and do some ''sittin' on the dock of the bay'' in the morning sun...well, you'd just have to...to watch the tide roll away and see some sea lions at Pier 39...

I'd take in some great views of the bay...

San Francisco Bay from Marin County

and take a walk over the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset holding hands with the one I love...

Then after all that sight seeing I'd stop by Macy's (I'd love to see an American department store) to find a few treasures to bring home...a cashmere sweater (on sale, yay!)...and a bottle of Dior's Escale a Portofino to take away that wintery chill...

(in my dreams this is what I would look like today!)

Mmmmm....feeling a bit peckish now and loving Italian, perhaps I'd head over to Quince for a little treat...

Ah well, a girl can dream.

Happy travels my love (oh and if you read this...can you take me with you next time, perhaps?!)...

This sounds so perfect! San Fran has been on my list of places to vacation to for at least 10 years and I still haven't gotten there. sigh.... someday!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and your sweet comments on my kitchen! It was a fun project and very satisfying when it was finally done! :)
