Saturday in Sausalito

October 4, 2010 by


This weekend my family and I took a nice drive across the bridge to Sausalito, which is right across the bay from San Francisco.

Sunday Afternoons

August 16, 2010 by


One of my favorite parts about Sunday is the drive back into the city after a weekend at home. Every Sunday afternoon, instead of making me take the train, my parents drive me back to school.
