A day spent exploring San Francisco

I am a huge advocate for exploring the city that you live in! Thanks to the flexibility of my jobs, I can be a tourist in my own city during the week and not have to deal with the real tourists ;) On my days off I like to explore brunch spots and coffee shops.  I also try to venture out and explore Sonoma in wine country.  Exploring wine country takes more planning and time though so I leave it for when people come visit us from out of town or on the weekends.

Last week I had the most amazing day walking from our place in the Marina to Dynamo Donut & Coffee and then to the Lyon Street Steps.  I went at around 1pm on a Thursday and I only saw 5 people at the most on the steps.  It was a great day full of sunshine, beautiful views and 124 steps.  On my way home I stopped by The Bud Stop and picked up a bouquet of beautiful flowers.  If you haven't been to the Lyon Street Steps, you should totally go after picking up a four barrel cup of coffee and a delicious donut from Dynamo Donut & Coffee ;)

I hope you go out and explore your own city soon!
