I have a crazy busy weekend – two weddings to finish editing, and a wedding in the Hamptons on Sunday. It’s going to be go go go for the next four days, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My friends and family are probably rolling their eyes in anticipation of my exclamations of exhaustion that inevitably follow my go go go weekends. But at the end of the next four days, something pretty exciting awaits me: California.
I haven’t been to California in a million years, and I’ve never been to this part of California – Santa Clara and San Francisco. I don’t know what my fascination is with California, but in my mind it seems like this magical place, and San Francisco in particular with its winding, hilly streets and golden bridge. (Forgive me if San Francisco’s streets are not infact winding or hilly… in my imagination they are.) My memories of going to California as a kid are some of my fondest memories of my childhood. It was this sunshiny place with harbors full of seals, and the Pacific Ocean just stretching, stretching, stretching. And… well… California had Disneyland. Lest we forget.
Of course, that was southern California. I expect northern California will be different. And I’m excited to find out how. So… what should we not miss? What is no trip to San Francisco complete without? What food item must I have? What restaurant must I eat said food item in? Tell me about California. Will I love it as much as I think I will?
