San Francisco Christmas and a holiday greeting
Where has the year gone I wonder? I’m back in San Francisco visiting friends and family for the holidays and it’s both wonderful and strange to be celebrating Christmas so soon with end of the year passing through so quickly. Fortunately the rainy weather that has been a blessing for the California drought has cleared up with beautiful blue skies for the holiday season in the Bay Area. I love exploring the city especially dressed up for the holidays – this time I enjoyed using my cell phone which is not my typical way of capturing the city but it was easy especially when I just want to enjoy the views and quickly snap a few pics for any stories.
Here are some highlights of Christmas season in my favorite city by the bay:
I love being outdoors when I can spend some time around the beaches or coastal areas around the city. Baker and China beach are so close to where I typically stay and the San Francisco headlands are so stunning with views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Golden Gate bridge views are always stunning
It’s also fun to explore some of the Christmas discoveries around town
Or dropping by Grace Cathedral on Nob Hill to listen to amazing Christmas music and see this amazing church
I loved this tree at the cathedral with the creation of the 1000 cranes and what it represents for the holidays and wishes for the New Year.
Of course Union Square is always festive for the Christmas season and shopping
Talking about ginger bread, sample anyone?
It has been a fantastic year filled with amazing traveling experiences for myself and the amazing new friends that I have met along my journeys. I hope to always be connected with these new and old friends via our easily connected cyber world. Thank you for visiting my blog throughout the year and I truly hope you have a warm and wonderful holiday season with your loved ones and a beautiful and healthy New Years ahead for 2015!
