I never knew how great fireworks could be until I saw them soar over the Golden Gate Bridge. I rode my bike up and over the many hills (feels like climbing mountains) and then down to the Marina Green Park for the view of the 75th Anniversary firework show. It’s moments like this that really reaffirm my infatuation with this city.
Pardon the slight movement of the camera… handheld.
It’s the 75th anniversary of one of the most visited landmarks in the world: thee Golden Gate Bridge. I’m in love and get that fuzzy feeling every time it’s in view. I’ve seen it’s various angles and one I like most is the peek-a-boo hello out of the fog bank. Can’t wait to celebrate with fireworks and merriment!
While the family was in town, we went to the Legion of Honor to see the Cult of Beauty exhibition. Although I appreciated the design aestheticism of the furnishings, my favorite part was the James Abbott McNeil Whistler (JAMW) paintings/etchings. He really strikes a cord with me.

This last Home Brew Friday included homemade bitters made by my lovely and talented friend. So inspiring! Can’t wait to make my own someday.
In the works…
Let nature do the work.
I heart Nights of Cabiria. The lovely and talented Giulietta Masina sure packs a lot in a small package. Fellini and she make quite a pair.
You can watch the film in it’s entirety here:
buon week end!
It’s my favorite time of year at the farmer’s market when spring and summer mingle together for a brief exchange. Think asparagus do-si-do-ing a strawberry. Many canning projects are on the horizon. (not asparagus strawberry jam). More inspiration here:
