So after Christmas, I went on a trip up north with zee familia. We went to Sequoia National Forest, Yosemite, Fresno, Sacramento, San Francisco, Solvang, and Mission Santa Barbara.
The trip was fun and I definitely won’t forget it because I twisted/sprained my ankle while we were there. I wish I could tell you that it’s this epic story where I’m hiking through the forest and I fell from a rock and twisted my ankle… but no. What happened was that I was stepping down from the curb and I missed the step (according to my mom) because the next thing I knew I was on the ground. Lamesauce, I know. I’m such a loser (hahaha). We were suppose to go to Hearst Castle, the only thing I had requested we go to, and we had to cancel the trip because ain’t no waaay I was climbing up and down 100+ steps with a swollen ankle. So sad.
The forest was beautiful. I’ve never been to Sequoia National Forest or Yosemite, but it was nice to see that. The only part I (as well as my sister and mom) did not like was that we got kind of car sick because of the winding roads. It didn’t help that I was taking pictures of EVERYTHING while my dad was driving… there was one point where I was pretty much leaning over him so I can take a picture of the view that was on his side.
On the way to yosemite, we had stopped by this small thrift store and I bought a lace tablecloth, lace doilies, and lace ribbons. (I’ll show you guys one day)
Then in sacramento, we strolled through old town sacramento. It was really cute and I took pictures of my sisters near the brick buildings. We also went to the “57th Street Antique Mall” They have have some pretty awesome stuff. Pricey though. The dealers were literally following me around, I felt like they were watching my every move. I did buy a couple of old books, The Scarlet Letter and War & Peace, from there (picture to follow another day).
I twisted my ankle the morning we were going to go to San Francisco. We were suppose to do A LOT while we were there but since I couldn’t walk, we just stayed at pier 39 and took this bus tour around the city. (the ones with the double decker bus) Then we went back to the hotel after.
Then we were on our way to Solvang because that’s where my sister wanted to go. Spent the night and walked around the town the next day. Then after we were on our way to Mission Santa Barbara. Took some pictures then went home because we had a family party to go to for New Years Eve!
That was pretty much the quick summary of my trip. Hope ya’ll enjoy the pictures below.
