Anniversary plans

This year will be our 20th anniversary. And I've planned a weekend that I'm really excited about. My hairstylist told me about a really cool hotel in Sausalito about a year ago. I wrote the name down and just held on to it. This month's Sacramento Magazine had as its cover article "Dream Weekends" and the first place they featured was Sausalito and the hotel they suggested was the one I'd written down!

So the second weekend in October we'll be in Sausalito (just north of San Francisco) staying at Cavallo Point. The hotel is a half mile walk from the Golden Gate Bridge, and a short distance from the ferry. Here are some pictures of the room we'll be in:

Can you see the Golden Gate Bridge from the window?!?!

The plan is to leave Thursday morning and come home on Sunday afternoon. What will we do while we're there? WHO CARES! No seriously, here are some of the options:

Stay at the hotel enjoying the meditation garden and heated meditation pools.
Hike in the Marin headlands or head to Mt. Tamalpias for some serious hiking.
Walk or take the ferry to San Francisco (TONS to do there).
Hang out at Coit Tower and watch the Blue Angels!

Is it October yet?!?!? :)

Take care and best wishes.

I love Sausalito. How about a nice stroll thru Muir Woods and the redwood forest?

P.S. Congrats!

Oh, to have all those options... I was going to add Muir Woods too. But it looks like you've got a lot of other places to consider too. And I love the hike up to Coit Tower. Nothing like it that I know of.

I've been to that town/city, but only to visit relatives. The room looks great! I'm so happy for you and congrats my friend. How many people can say they've been married that long...and many more years to come :)
