San Francisco



Taking off from LAX to San Francisco on Virgin
America with the tower in the background.
I would fly Virgin again.

My daughter and I traveled to San Francisco and Redding, California for a week. This little
Beach Grill started an amazing adventure for us. Our waiter made our day. He
steered us to some wonderful sites and shops.


We started our adventure here on a typical
San Francisco street.


We walked about and found this fantastic little boutique called,
Paparazzi. This was our most memorable time in San Francisco.
This is the front window of the shop that is filled with beautiful
clothing and jewelry. If you visit, you have to stop here. It's
the North Beach location on Grant Street. More later on what we
bought.
 
This was the chandelier hanging in the shop. I can't resist a gorgeous chandelier.
 
Beautiful one of a kind pieces of jewelry.


This is the sign on the front window.


This is the famous coffee house where many authors have written
best sellers. I had espresso. Delicious.


This is the book store made famous in the hippie sixties.


How could we miss walking to Pier 39 where I got this shot of a passenger ferry racing to get a
better view of Alcatraz prison.


This is the back of the Fog Harbor restaurant at Pier 39. We had a pick me up here which
included crème brulee.

I couldn't resist taking this photo.
 

On our way out of San Francisco I walked into this Art Gallery (near the CVS) with a dozen beautiful
chandeliers located near Pier 39.


We drove to Redding, California where we stayed in this beautiful hotel (Win-River) with
this lovely creek running in front of it.
 


My top is by Lucky brand from Nordstrom and my sunglasses by Ralph Lauren
My earrings I bought at Paparazzi.
This is the reason for our trip. We went to see my brother, Doug.
Here we are underneath the palms at the hotel.

This is my beautiful daughter, Jenny. A joy
to travel with. We had a great time.

This is the view of the Bay Bridge as we drove to the airport to return home.
I didn't get a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. I was too far away.

Happy Mother's Day



I hope everyone had a happy mother's day. I did and I am
sharing some of the images from my day of what the guests
wore at the brunch my daughter gave for mother's day.

I loved this print jacket and pink necklace. It says spring.
 

This looked  fashionable on a 89 year
old mother. I liked the blue and white with
the gold accents.

Great Boho top.

Even my granddaughter dressed for the occasion.
 

Beautiful handmade glass necklace.
 

Gift at the brunch.
 

The gentlemen dressed up, too.

This man just bought himself  a motorcycle-pictured below.


Not that I am a fan of motorcycles but this is a picture of the
Harley Davidson bike.

This is my hubby on said bike. It was a fun day and
the men enjoyed it as much as all the women. I
hope your mother's day was great.
