A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Good views and good food

One of my favorite blogs recommended La Boulange as one of the best bakeries in San Francisco, so it only seemed appropriate to give it a try. It was delicious and it felt like a luxurious way to start the day. Morning rolls and almond croissants...mmmmmmm.

I have never noticed before, but there is a small gathering of surfers by Fort Mason and the Golden Gate Bridge. It seems like a less than ideal place to surf, but it does make for some good people watching.

The day we walked across the bridge the weather was in true San Francisco style- a bit foggy.

Pica Pica Maize Kitchen is the only Venezuelan restaurant in San Francisco, this seems hard to believe, but according to the guide this is the case. They make these corn pancakes and then fill them up like you would a burrito. Cameron out ordered me and ended up with the more delectable lunch, but I was glad he was happy since he is always such a good sport about going wherever I want.

Lombard Street from Coit Tower.

We just happened to stumble upon the parrots on Telegraph Hill. They are a brilliant shade of green and blend in perfectly with the surrounding foliage.

The lighthouse on Alcatraz was the first lighthouse on the West coast. I love acquiring interesting tid bits while on vacation, learning is one of the sole purposes of traveling for me.
