I had one lone goal this summer: visit Bi-Rite Ice Creamery, a famous ice cream shop in the Mission District of San Francisco. They make boutique flavors of ice cream, like honey lavender, salted caramel, and strawberry balsamic (in addition to more traditional flavors). Since this was a 3 day weekend marking the end of summer, we figured this would be the perfect time to visit and cross off this item on my checklist.
So today, we went up to the Mission and had lunch with some friends, and then wandered through the district. It was so very colorful, in all sense of the word. And smelly (apparently, many people think that smoking weed and peeing anywhere you’d like is a-okay in the Mission). But still nicely colorful. Anyway, here are some pics from today.
PS: A quick note about these pics — all taken with my regular old kit lens! It’s not bad; not super sharp and clear, but I liked the wideness of it.
PPS: At Bi-Rite, I got the salted caramel and malted vanilla with peanut brittle. The salted caramel wasn’t so great; kind of like burned caramel. But the vanilla was great. And J. got the cinnamon ice cream with snickerdoodle bits — that was a good one.
