We arrived to the warm breeze and beautiful setting sun in San Francisco on a Monday evening. The next day, after the best latte I've ever had, we explored the city.
After our first lunch at this California gem....
.....we made our way to San Jose the long way, along the coast (I could totally get used to highways along the ocean!). Of course we had to make a stop at Half Moon Bay Beach. It was simply breathtaking and even though the water was ice cold, the warm sand felt like heaven to our cold, MN toes.
The rest of our time was spent in San Jose where we had our first experience with Thai food (mostly positive!), ate gourmet pizza outside, caught a movie in a high-rise, and visited the Winchester Mystery House.
While Ben attended his conference, I enjoyed time by the pool and local rose garden where I actually completed reading four books!
We had a great time away and it was just what we needed before coming back to the snow, cold, and TONS of boxes waiting to be moved!
