Do you need a staycation like yesterday? Here’s my favorite getaway in a day: Municipal Pier. The fishing is free of charge and requires no fishing license. The views are amazing, and the wildlife always shows up. You can pretty much guarantee to see seals, seagulls, ducks, crabs getting hauled up, fish on the lines, and my personal favorite: pelicans!
Bring your favorite sketchbook, a camera, lunch, a fishing pole, warm clothes, and a chair. Seriously. Don’t forget a hat and a jacket, even on a sunny day, because the wind blows and it is always chilly out on that pier! But it’s so worth it. As you head out onto the pier you will feel the city fade away. Within minutes you are in a marine wonderland. Stay as long as you’d like. =)
I recently had the pleasure of visiting The Gregangelo Museum in San Francisco’s Balboa Terrace District. I cannot express the beauty and impeccable attention to detail in every inch of this fantasy functional art on a the grandest of scales. Magical, magnificent, mind blowing…
Here’s a peek to see for yourself.
Majestic. Am I right? And that was just the front porch! I’m not going to spoil it for you. You have to see it for yourself. But I promise anyone experiencing this will leave in wonder, inspired and mystified. I should think this palace of mystery and beauty, with its artistic use of tiles, fabric, paint, and even roofing, will soon be a must on every design school syllabus. It’s a craftsman’s paradise. Seriously, even the roof is beautiful.
Come enjoy amazing views in this peaceful oasis located at the Lyons Street entrance of The Presidio in San Francisco, California. There are paved paths for exploring and benches for contemplating all around the scenic Letterman Digital Arts Center Recycled Water Pond. Bring your camera and a jacket. There’s a Starbucks just up the path for snacks, coffee and a potty stop.
