We took a wonderful bus tour around the city of San Francisco today. We rode through the streets listening to an audio tour on earbuds. The best part of the tour was riding over the Golden Gate Bridge on the top deck of the bus with the wind whipping through our hair and the sun on our faces. What a gorgeous day in a gorgeous city!
One of the places I wanted to visit while we were in California was Ladurée in Los Angeles. They are a Parisian bakery that specializes in macarons. My daughter and I were able to pop in for a few minutes to savor the sights and choose some treats to nibble. We broke each macaron into little bites so we could try each different flavor. It was such fun!

Father John took us up the winding roads to one of the Twin Peaks overlooking the city tonight. It was gorgeous, but the wind was whipping so hard that I was afraid we'd be blown right off the side! The fog was starting to blow in, too! Magical!

The Palace of Fine Arts was an amazing stop in San Francisco. It is a little park with imposing structures that were built in 1915 as part of the Panama- Pacific Exposition to exhibit works of art presented there. There is a pathway surrounding the water with turtles and birds to see... I was thrilled to see a pair of swans!
The children and I popped into Tartine bakery today while Father John was filming at the Old Cathedral on Fulton Street. What a treat! We each picked something different and shared our choices with one another. Everything was so delicious and the atmosphere was very chic. I'm very thankful that my friend Elissa suggested visiting!
