Study in black and white

I took my daughter to the Sutro baths not too long ago. She loved this cave among the ruins, in all its darkness, with the booming tide crashing against the rocks. Spooky!

Dahlia Dell

I love Golden Gate Park. I’ve spent countless hours here: running, biking, walking, just hanging out… I never get tired of it. And one of my favorite seasonal treats they offer is its beautiful Dahlia Dell, the almost hidden sister next to the grand Conservatory of Flowers. Dahlia’s are great to explore up close and personal. And the best time to go is in early Autumn, late September/early October (which is when these photos were taken).

The closer you get, the more there is to see.

I love the architecture of the petals…

…and vivid colors

And closer still, you enter dreamland. Sometimes soft…

…sometimes joyful…

…always memorable.

Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market

Saturday morning was beautiful. My kiddo was at a sleepover so I could sleep in and not have to start the day repeating myself over and over. Tom came back from his group run and declared that it’s a perfect day to ride our bikes to the Ferry Building and get some yummies at the farmer’s market. So that’s what we did.

Mouth watering fruit!

Can you believe that I didn’t like pears when I was a kid? I missed out on so much yummy goodness!

Nothing like a box of apples to remind you of the arrival of Autumn.

Grapes are like natures chips. You can’t eat just one.

More purple food goodness.

You say “To-may-to.” I say “Yum!”

We bought some awesome ingredients for that night’s dinner salad (watermelon radish, carrots, leafy greens, dried fruit), then meandered back inside the Ferry Building and noshed on steamed pork buns.

A perfect morning!
