The Bayside

Share & Follow

Hi!

It’s Tuesday, not nearly close enough to the weekend. Yet I am sitting here reminiscing about my recent trip to the Bayside. Oakland, San Francisco and the City of Berkeley! Much like Austin the bay was a place I hadn’t visited yet, but knew I would love. Home to liberals, hippies, hipsters, techies, immigrants, yuppies, and every other now trending generation. A place where you must come hungry, and ready to hike.

 I had the fortune of visiting two of my girlfriends who lived in the area. Which helped immensely with navigation (sort of!) and local spots. Even though I was on tourist mode with my huge camera.

Here’s my take on the bay:

San Francisco is incredibly picturesque. The City of Berkeley is young and creative. While Oakland keeps it real.

Where else would we have been on National Donut day in the Bay. This shabby shop is family owned and still makes their donuts from scratch. These donuts are classically fried, taste sweet and have lots of texture, amazing! But no dogs are allowed.

Every corner of San Francisco is charming. Its streets can challenge you with steep hills or surprise you with beautiful views.
