Over the weekend, San Francisco’s weather was #onpoint. In fact, it was just beautiful (until later Sunday afternoon when it started getting windy again). To take advantage of the beautiful weather, I went on a drive down to the coast to Pacifica. There, you can find lots of short hikes and beaches. The relatively short Mori Point hike is #onpoint and takes you to a beautiful vista point of the coastline. Thoughts on just how #onpoint this hike, the vista, and this hashtag is? Hahaha!

Over Memorial Day weekend, I went on a much needed camping and hiking trip to the San Luis Reservoir State Recreation Area. I was so nice to just get away from everything, not have to worry about being in contact with people, and just enjoying nature. Even though the camping wasn’t amazing (like in the Redwood forest or anything), the trees were still plentiful in the area we were staying, the water was close by, and the air was fresh. We tried to go on a couple of hikes, which weren’t too successful due to a horrible amounts of dried wheat everywhere, but all in all, a great time!

Cambridge is where it’s at! So close  to London and  meet seemingly another world away. During our week in London, my mom really wanted to visit at least one of the major universities because that’s what’s famous for her and her friedns’ age group. After reading a bunch of stuff online about picking between Oxford and Cambridge, I decided on Cambridge. More than just a university town though, it was really neat to walk through Cambridge and see the parts of it’s that are just city-like and other parts that are just old like the narrow winding streets. The river was particularly beautiful and (when it’s warmer) filled with people punting (paddling interesting boat-like contraptions). On land, my mom and I spent some time at cream tea and enjoyed a famous (incredibly sweet and sticky) Chelsea Bun from Fitzbillies.
