Memorial Day Weekend in Sausalito
May 25, 2012 § 1 Comment
In anticipation of a weekend with the Grandparents, we took the kids to Sausalito to scout some yummy spots and pick up some flowers to spruce up the house for their big arrival!
Stop #1. Nancy Ann Flowers. They are somehow the best, freshest, cutest, and most inexpensive flowers in Marin County. We walked out of here with enough for medium bouquets for under $20! Thanks to Kerry for telling us where to go!
Stop #2. Cibo for a yummy snack. The shortbread cookies were to die for – even Thacher wanted some!! The back room used to be a seperate shop, but they recently bought it and it’s a fantastic spot for birthdays and other functions – like Lainie getting cookies with us! The first time we came here, I was interning in San Francisco during grad school and Marley was 9 months. Zander loved the Prosciutto Panini so much, it was our first brunch spot when we finally moved a year and a half later!
Stops #3-7. Our favorite toddler haunts are the Discovery Museum and Southview Playground, which is Marley’s favorite playground, with a view of San Francisco from the Sausalito hills. Favorite adult haunts are Heath Ceramics, where you can find fantastic deals on seconds, as well as their signature line of ceramics; and, the Spaulding Wooden Boat Center, where you can stop in to see how a boat has been made for hundreds of years, or even charter their boat for an afternoon!
Stop #8. Bar Bocce is the perfect spot for an afternoon/evening cocktail and an appetizer with or without kids. There’s a small beach where older kids can play at while you sit with your date around the fire pit and enjoy. There is a real Bocce court directly behind me that’s beautifully lit in the evenings. This is especially great for those notorious San Francisco ‘summer’ days..
