I spent my first full weekend in SF solo, as M had a trip east planned long before our big move. Though I initially felt nervous about a long weekend alone in a new city with few friends, it turned out to be an enjoyable weekend--a nice mix of organizing our new home, and exploring with some family I am thankful to have nearby.
Highlights: Exploring with my Bay Area sister-in-law the magical Muir Woods, which felt like hobbit/fairy land; a quick visit to quaint Sausalito; dinner back in the neighborhood at (new favorite) French bistro Gamine; visiting my cousin for a nice brunch and dog walk in Berkeley; several walks around neighboring Pacific Heights. These hills are no joke.
