My Sadie girl came into my life in 2003 and I was lucky enough to have her unconditional love and companionship in my life for 12 wonderful years. She was a constant in a world that can sometimes be confusing and unsure. Her cute little face was there to greet me at the end of each day. Her silly spirit constantly made me laugh. She loved so deeply and without words. We had our own silent language, although I was convinced one day she’d speak up and say “Okay, I’ve been quiet for 12 years, here are my thoughts on your life, your friends, and your sometimes questionable dating choices” and we’d open up a bottle of wine and discuss. (Actually, that thought terrified me. Can you imagine the opinions that would come?!)
San Francisco teams are on a huge roll right now – the Giants sit atop the NL West, the 49ers are starting to get comfortable at their newly minted Levi’s Stadium, and the Golden State Warriors playing in nearby Oakland were about 5 seconds and 4 points away from championship glory last season.
While there’s actually nothing like seeing a game live, a lot of times scoring tickets can be hit-or-miss or darn near impossible come playoff season.
When you’re at the game you also have to deal with opposing fans and that guy at the end of the aisle endlessly screaming for nachos. That’s maybe not the ideal spectator experience you had in mind when you purchased your tickets.
A picturesque neighborhood hugging the San Francisco Bay, the Marina District houses incredible beauty and breath-taking scenery.
The real calling card of the Marina District is not the jaw-dropping view of the San Francisco Bay, but the area’s also home to a great nightlife scene. There is plenty of local farmer’s markets on the weekends, scenic bike paths, a lovely marina, and all kinds of vintage stores.
