California Summer in Review

August 29th, 2010 by Melina

Part 1

Wow. So it’s almost time to go back to NYC. I’m not ready. I’ve been knee deep in writer crazy that’s evolved into writer insanity. Combine that with the “teacher about to begin the school year” crazy and the “It’s going to be 90 degrees and there won’t be any fog and I’m going back to work nerves” and what you get is one super jittery Mel.

And for some reason, I’m feeling more attached to, and more proud of, the Bay Area than I ever have.

Hence, this post.

First up – remember the California Happy Cow post?

Well, behold some Happy Cows, real and otherwise:

I spent quite a bit of time in San Francisco. Check out the fog. Apparently, this has been the coldest Bay Area summer in 40 years.

Fog, sea lions, cable cars, Alcatraz, and a Full House Flashback:

One of my favorite spots on this earth (and Creature would agree with me on this) is Point Isabel, the best dog park in the country. It’s right on the bay. On a clear day, there is an absolutely perfect view of the city. And when you’re done walking the trail, you can relax at the “Sit and Stay Cafe” while your dog has a bath at “Mudpuppy’s Tub and Scrub.” And by the way, the food is totally gourmet. The white hot chocolate is to die for, and the lemonade is organic and served in a sustainable cup made of plant parts. Welcome to CA. . .

One of the best afternoons of this entire summer was spent wandering through Muir Woods. It was warm enough I could walk around in a t-shirt:

Thanks for looking! I’ll be back tomorrow with Part 2.

    Excellent question.

    The answer? I’m stubborn. Oh, and I have a job.
