Love Me Do, Hear, & See September 24th – 30th, 2018As of this weekend, it’s official: Fall. Break out the sweaters, dust off the scarves, and fill up that cocoa cup. If only things were that simple…
Living in the Bay, we know that there’s always the possibility of a few random hot ones in September, but fingers crossed, sweater weather is here to stay, because I’ve been eying a new knit at Old Navy for weeks. Now that school is back in session and pumpkin spice is spreading like wildfire (have you checked your local Safeway lately?), I’m pleased to say that my favorite season is finally here. Ready to celebrate the change in season? Still clinging to the warm summer nights? That’s okay – there’s plenty to do this week for everyone.

I can’t say I’ve ever been on a kayaking tour, let alone one at sunset. That’s something I plan to change ASAP. Join Stacked Adventures for a special night where the sun sets as the moon rises. End the day on a high note by paddling the Estuary area towards Jack London Square, before returning under the twilight. Be sure to bring your phone to snap some pictures and it’s sure to be a beautiful sunset! $20 Discounts for couple registrations – aww, romantic, right?
