Beating the Winter Blues: #SunshineSUNday #2

This winter I’m devoting every Sunday on this blog to SUN! (I started last week: see here.) What our skin lacks in Vitamin D we will make up for with our eyes! Together we will combat the winter blues, living vicariously through pictures of greener, sunnier pastures!

SUNday #2: Walks around San Francisco.

On my late December visit to California, I was reminded walking isn’t just mad dash to get out of the cold as quickly as possible. A walk around town can be an enjoyable, sightseeing adventure. Walking is actually one of my favorite past times (when the weather is above freezing). Here are some pictures from sunny walks around San Francisco.

San Francisco California Street

Walking down California Street in San Francisco, California. Cable car tracks below, Bay Bridge in the crack between the buildings.

San Francisco Walk

Walk on Noe Valley on a super sunny morning. Not a notable street really, but it’s simple and pretty!

Look! In San Francisco they have mirrors for you to parallel park take selfies! #bloggerlogic

Lemons growing in this front yard- agh I’m so jealous (do you think they drink nothing but fresh squeezed lemonade?).


People have a lot more fun on the west coast when it comes to painting their houses. I love the aqua stripes and the purple flowers even more.


A sign stuck on the window of a car, the window is intact so I guess it works (hilarious especially to a New Yorker)? Also the reflection of my awesome bag of California tangerines (the produce is superior).


If you look all the way down this hill, you can see the red tippy top of the Golden Gate Bridge!

Sometimes you need a break from walking. Sometimes you’ll find a break randomly, like this completely random pig bench in Golden Gate Heights.


It makes me a total tourist in my home town, but I love a walk along the wharf.

Especially at sunset. Can you spot the Golden Gate?

California dreaming on such a winter’s day… I think this reminiscence of sun will get me through the week. I actually wrote this post bathed in winter sunshine, that helps too! Hope these pictures brightened your day, however cold it gets!

  1. So beautiful the photos you have clicked. Even I love walking too and I too wander for hours on feet whenever I goes outside. Since here in India especially in North India whether is chilling; It’s very hard to go outside in such cold. Here winter is rather cold due to the fog but I must say that I still enjoy this whether because this is the only time I can spend with my family. And You know family means a lot.
