Pinecrest, CA this past weekend. Nick's family has been camping there for-ev-er and I had never had a chance to visit. So, Mr. Romantic comes home early from work last week and says, "Guess what... I got us a campsite for our anniversary this weekend..." Not much of a camper or someone who relishes the idea of sleeping in dirt, I decided to be optimistic and join in the excitement of our first camping trip together.
I loved finally having a picture of the place that was so meaningful to Nick growing up and hearing all the stories that began with, "And this is where we..." It was a great little trip, and just the perfect amount of time. Around the time I started to really crave a shower and my own bed, it was time to pack up and head back to Oak-town.
Lake Chalet. This beautiful restaurant is located on Lake Merritt. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner and drinks and enjoyed a break from the ordinary Monday night.
Even the Bay Area summer fog couldn't ruin our night!
