Summer travels to San Francisco

A recent trip to San Fran last week with 3 girlfriends, was an amazing and inspiring time. Such a fantastic city, with a relaxed atmosphere and artistic vibe, it was hard to not be inspired. Oh...and not to forget the restaurants....fabulous to say the least.

A few notable restaurants that really impressed us were The Slanted Door at the Ferry Building, that serves modern vietnamese cuisine, and Gracias Madre, a vegan-mexican restaurant that grows all of its own food at a small farm they own.....even the corn for the hand ground corn tortillas; these were to die for! Two must restaurants to check out.

Sundays in the city are free for many museums and galleries, and the MOMA was featuring Andy Warhol & Roy Lichtenstein. Two amazing screenprinters and graphic artists whom I have admired for years. I must mention that these pieces must be seen up close to fully appreciate, as their techniques of enlarging the pixels in their images are stunning to see in person. My photos will not exactly give justice to the pieces I photographed.

We also checked out some bright & colourful stores, with inspiring textiles & housewares.
