Far West Fungi tent at the Ferry Building farmers market or their little shop. The owner is an absolute delight and if I had to describe him I'd say he's a bit like a more plump and mellow Anthony Bourdain with just as much passion about good food. I usually just ask him to make an assorted basket for me or tell him what I want to cook up like miso or seafood and get suggestions that are always spot on. Along with mushrooms they also sell foraged goods like sea beans and you may remember my thrill with their bringing in ramps a few months back. This gem is worth a visit.
I'm putting that giant bottle of Knob Creek bourbon to use with a simple hot toddy paired with a sunset. I don't really measure when I make this drink and it's really a matter of taste with bourbon, honey, fresh lemon juice, and hot water. A delicious way to warm up and soothe a sore throat.
Golden Gate Bridge photo walk. It was inspiring to see how differently people shoot and of course to have so many lovely humans under the bridge to show just how big the bridge is. The pics above are similar, but with a giant barge for scale or so many camera silhouettes I just wanted to share them all with you.
An evening hike up and over the very steep and very wiggly Lombard street for sunset views with the sun setting at the edge of the Pacific Ocean while casting a pink shadow across the city. I love the bits of street art like this tiger striped light pole and the lush green hedges that edge the stairs at the top of the hill. San Francisco is best experienced on foot, but I'm anxious to see it from a sailboat again soon.
