That basically means we stay overnight at a hotel, but not too far away from home. The furthest we've gone (so far) is to San Francisco.
Can you tell we love going there? It helps that my husband knows the city like the back of his hand, so we're never lost, plus I get to see some of the neatest places!
One spot we like to go to is the Marin Headlands. It's a turnoff right by the Golden Gate Bridge. You drive up to the top and it overlooks the bay! It's gorgeous, especially in clear weather. This day we went, there was overcast. But, that was okay. We still enjoyed sitting there, and walking around!
I tell ya...we love our kids, but it's so nice to get away by ourselves!!
Isn't that gorgeous? You can see the Golden Gate Bridge off in the distance!
So peaceful here!
When we were done there, we went back to check into our hotel, Le Meridien.
Here's the view out our window. My husband wasn't too thrilled, but that's because he was comparing our view from the other hotel we stayed at previously. I'll post about that next time!
Time for dinner! We decided on Scoma's on the Wharf. Here we are waiting to be seated!
Now, onto the food! Our appetizer was delicious. A little bit of everything! Fried calamari, shrimp scampi, and crab cakes.
Lobster Bisque at it's finest! So creamy and tasty!
I'm all about seafood pasta! And this was the real deal! Huge pieces of scallops, shrimp, and crab!
Filet Mignon and Lobster for the hubby!
We left there completely happy! We are definitely going back there again! And the only reason we didn't order dessert was because we had connoli's back at the hotel!
The next morning, we decided to eat at Beach Chalet Brewery. If you're lucky enough (or early enough) you can be seated right next to the window with the ocean as your view! We were one table away, but we were close enough!
We started with a couple of sweets! I wanted to try their fresh fruit and granola parfait. That was practically a meal in itself! I loved it!
I also wanted to try their Beignets, because believe it or not, I've never had one! They served it with two sauces. Warm mixed berry and espresso Bailey's creme anglaise! Sooooo good!
Now for the main meals! My husband ordered Corned Beef Hash. That's a poached egg on top. It looks like sour cream in the picture.
I opted for Dungeness Crab Bendict! Oh...soooo...good!!
That's it..then end! LOL..then, we headed home to our kiddos!
