WHAT FUN! THE TIBURON CAR CLASSIC

June 21, 2017

Every summer the quaint town of Tiburon sponsors the Tiburon Car Classic. Tiburon, nestled next to San Francisco Bay offers fabulous views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.IMG_1469

What fun to stroll along the waterfront gazing at this amazing view while enjoying classic, vintage and special cars.  Residents and neighbors – all car aficionados – polish and shine each special vehicle and line them up along the watering for visitors to admire. Food trucks and beverages make the day a success for everyone. Look for this special event next summer. It is worth a visit.  Info can be found on the Town of Tiburon web site. IMG_1467IMG_1462

Wow! What a day!

May 18, 2017

The sky is blue.  The sun is shining. On such a gorgeous San Francisco day it is hard to find a prettier location than Lands End. Located at the westernmost tip of San Francisco, the vistas are amazing. Whether you gaze at the Marin Headlands or back at the Golden Gate Bridge, this is the weather to enjoy such a unique spot. The trail is well groomed and a little over a mile so an easy walk with many view benches along the way. Or just spend some quiet time reflecting on the beauty or watching the ships pass under the mighty Golden Gate. In the mood for culture? Visit the Palace of the Legion of Honor. Beautiful exhibits and a beautiful building. Lands End is a special spot on a sunny day.

FUN IN THE CENTRAL PARK SNOW

February 16, 2017

With so much snow on the ground in Central Park, it is takes a major effort to keep the park clean, accessible and ready for winter fun. The Central Park Conservancy works hard all year to keep the park beautiful, but it takes an extra effort during winter. There is so much to enjoy in a snow covered Central Park. There is ice skating at Wollman Rink, Lasker Rink or the Conservatory Water. You can cross country ski through the meadows and on the bridal paths. And there is sledding on Pilgrim Hill and Cedar Hill. There are ice festivals, a fitness series, walks and guided tours of the winter park. For a complete list of activities, visit the Central Park Conservancy website and then visit the park! Spring and the explosion of daffodils and tulips are just around the corner.

LITTLE FREE LIBRARY

October 29, 2016

What fun is the neighborhood Little Free Library!  While on a walk in Venice, California, we came upon two neighborhood library boxes in one block.  Small little boxes resembling large mail boxes where you can drop off a favorite book or pick up something new to read. They are everywhere!  And not just in Venice.  They are so friendly and so inviting and such a “neighborly” idea that every neighborhood should have them.  What a great way to share a good book or discover a new author.  Keep reading and be neighborly!!little-free-library

FLEET WEEK SAN FRANCISCO

October 4, 2016

The skyline of San Francisco glows with blue lights in the evening in honor of San Francisco Fleet Week.  With a week filled with activities, October 7th – 10th promises to be fun and exciting.  There are ship tours, marching bands – even a high school band competition – , art shows, air shows, the Parade of Ships on Friday and, of course, the amazing Blue Angels.  Prepare to be in awe as they soar through the skies over the San Francisco Bay, spinning and circling only inches from each other.  There is a viewing area on the Marina Green and you can reserve seats online.  Sit, watch and enjoy the catered food. San Francisco Fleet Week has been an October tradition in the Bay Area since 1981.  It promises to be fun-filled, educational and exciting.  Don’t miss it!                                     http://www.powerhiking.comimg_9899
