Colin comes for a visit

A couple of weeks ago my good friend Colin finally managed to drag himself back out to the Bay Area for a visit and some much deserved down-time. Although the intention was to just have a chill week we still managed to pack in a whole bunch of things. On his first day here we headed north towards Healdsburg for a late lunch at the Bear Republic Brewing Company (try their award-winning "RACER 5" India Pale Ale) with a brief detour to Yountville to grab a tasty coffee at Bouchon Bakery. The weather gods were kind to us and treated us to sunny skies and 25 degreec C.
The following day we hit the city for some shopping followed by a hike in the Marin Headlands and finished the day off with dinner at Fish in Sausalito.
The final day was foggy, rainy and dreary so we hit the city once again for a little bar hopping starting with our first beer at around 11am at Club 540 in Inner Richmond. Then followed by more beer and a tasty lunch at Q Restaurant.
The picture above was pretty much the only one we managed to take all was taken 5 minutes before leaving for the airport. Good times, good times. Come back soon.
