Thatboy loves the Bay Area. I don't have the same affinity for it. But really, he doesn't blame me given that the only time I've really spent up there is time with his family. Who rarely ventures from their home, and for whom a "trip to the city" means a trip to the Museum of Modern Art. In an effort to get me to love the Bay Area, the day after Christmas, Thatboy planned a day where he could show me his favorite parts.
We began with a trip to Point Reyes and the lighthouse. The lighthouse was closed, but we were still able to hike up to the vantage point and see it.
We didn't spend a lot of time at the lighthouse (although we spent a lot of time getting there!) because Thatboy wanted to have lunch in Sausalito. I had been to Point Reyes before (just not the lighthouse) but this was my first time in Sausalito.
It was a cute little bayside community I would love to spend more time getting to know. Our time there was a little short, mostly because we were meeting TBIL, TSIL, and Thatniece for dinner in San Francisco. We got there a little early, so we headed down to Pier 39, where it was still Christmas!
And I got to see the sea lions! 13 years I've been going to San Francisco, and this was my first time seeing them! They were a huge hit with Thatbaby too.
