tulips in golden gate park

IMG_1342One thing I didn’t realize until I moved to San Francisco is that sunshine is really important to me. I can’t believe I had to move to a city covered in grey clouds and fog (during June and July, no less) to realize this, but I guess I just took it for granted living in Florida and Tennessee. So, when sunshine strikes in San Francisco, I try to take advantage!

This weekend, Scott and I popped over to the Queen Wilhelmina Tulip Garden in Golden Gate Park! We spent a lot of time indoors (seeing The Book of Mormon at the Orpheum and seeing Black Panther at our neighborhood movie theater) so the dose of Vitamin D was much needed.

The tulips were so vibrant and beautiful—I thought I’d share some photos here!IMG_1340

The park is full of so many different unique spots, including polo fields, an archery range, multiple gardens and windmills, several museums, a lake for canoeing, and several ponds. (Plus much more!) Golden Gate Park is actually larger than Central Park (fun fact) so naturally there’s always something to do.IMG_6616We are looking forward to many more Sundays to come in Golden Gate Park this spring!
