jens pick, san francisco






san francisco.
one of the places that i adore.
shopping. great eats. unique architecture. wonderful people.
{did I mention the great shopping + wonderful food?!}

one of my favorite spots to hit is the farmers market at the ferry building along the embarcadero. it is open three days a week, so your chance of hitting it even on a short visit is pretty good....seriously, could it get any better than wandering the aisles, taking in all of the fresh, organic + local produce...all the while breathing in the salty ocean air....aahhh, take me away!

Oh my gosh! You have taken me back to a wonderful time! We lived there for 8 years and I lived in paradise and knew it but didn't at the same time. You just live your life raise a family and go about your busy-ness. Sometimes I would stop and take it all in realizing that I may move from that wonderful place one day. We eventually did! Took me a long time to get over it! I loved the embarcadero too! Oh! I miss It! My daughter says that she left her heart in San Francisco!

It is a pretty spectacular place to visit and the best food arouond. I am pretty lucky to live 45 min. away from the city. Although we don't go into the city that much but we do try to go for a show or two twice a year. Fun town, that is for sure,Kathysue

Reading your post makes me want to visit San Fran more than ever. My husband and I are hoping to plan a road-trip for Oct, when we are due to fly to Vegas for my brother-in-law's 40th birthday celebrations. I remember my dad was out there when the bridge collapsed 1989 I think, I remember it so vividly. Despite that he came back raving about the city and the wealth and variety of things to do and places to see. Can't wait!

San Fran is my favorite city in the States. Hubby and I had so much fun there. I remember the flower markets when I was there - I was struck by how many there were and the beautiful colors.

That looks amazing! I should put San Fransisco on my list of places to visit one day.
