I’m not even a big donut person, but these donuts from Dynamo Donuts were absolutely deeelicious. We had 8 different kinds. Yeah, that’s right, 8 donuts for the 4 of us. We also had a nice chat with Sara Spearin, the owner and chef of Dynamo who Mark worked under as Assistant Pastry Chef in New York. It was his first pastry position job when we first moved out there and I remember Sara saying at the time that she called him for an interview because he went to college in Olympia and had just moved from Portland (Sara is from Oregon). If you’re out in San Francisco, you really ought to make a trip to Dynamo but you need to come early because there’s usually a line (again with the lines in this city!).
Our last day in San Francisco ended up being super nice. It was warm for the first time so we took the girls to China Beach to run around in the Pacific Ocean. Couldn’t really see the Golden Gate Bridge because the smoke monster (I mean The Fog) was hovering around the bridge and East Bay. Can you see it off in the horizon? We drove a few miles towards Golden Gate Bridge and it was completely foggy and quite cool there. Literally a different climate and landscape. So fascinating that it can be sunny and warm in one location, but foggy and cool a few blocks away.
ok…so I’m kinda freaked out about the Hurricane happening in the East Coast and obviously New York. It’s weird to be all the way over here and not be able to do anything about it except watch it unfold live like some disaster movie. Thanks to our cat sitter Mark and our neighbors for bringing in all our plants and furniture off our balcony. Be safe East Coast! I’ll be glued online to see how it unfolds.
