Barebones on the Best Coast

I'm just going to preface this with I KNOW this is long overdue and I KNOW this is just a bunch of photos.. not much content other than my normal rambling. But I hope you enjoy it anyways!

After spending September in Michigan, I headed to California. I stayed with my brother and sister-in-law in San Francisco, my cousin in Oakland, and rambled all over the coast with a couple friends.

My friend Joey (of Awesome Cameras fame) and I took a road trip up to Washington. We got ourselves in some snowy weather at Crater Lake, got to see some friends in Portland, and finally ended up in Seattle, where I take classes once a month. I visited more thrift shops in those four days than I have in my entire life.

Once I returned to San Francisco (by way of airplane) I met up with another friend who took me on a mini adventure down a tiny stretch of the California Coast. We ended up in Santa Cruz, spending time wandering empty beaches, listening to yipping coyotes, and catching some rad 70s style sunsets.

Once I got back to San Francisco... again... it was just in time for my Uncle's wedding. My dad and several of my aunts and uncles were in town. My dad and I got to adventure through Muir Woods, bop around SF, and party with the family! There are, of course, several snaps of the most adorable kitten on Earth, Tosi!

It's been a few months now, and I have returned to Hawaii and Detroit since these adventures. I'll be posting photos and a mini guide to the Big Island the next time around!
