San Francisco

The husband and I (and the new pup) went up to San Francisco for the first time a few weekends ago.

I loved it. There was so much to do in the city and it was so dog friendly, especially compared to LA.

But really what I loved the most was the art EVERYWHERE. I've never been to a city before where everything seems like art, from street signs to buildings to parks. It felt like I was in one big art installation.

One thing I especially noticed was all of the awesome typography and sign design at every turn. Walking around the Farmer's Market, seeing all of the tempting wares was a highlight, but I was in heaven marveling at all of the different logos, designs, and signs.

A few of my favorites

Although I DID see this design faux pas at an otherwise delightful store:

We also got to take Penny to the beach for the first time! She loved being off leash and getting to play with other pups. She was not a big fan of the water, though. Observe:

"Huh? What the...? AHHH!"

Summary? Loved it. Want to go back soon.
