The Palace of Fine Arts in the Marina District of San Francisco, California, is a monumental structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit works of art presented there. One of only a few surviving structures from the Exposition, it is still situated on its original site. It was rebuilt in 1965, and renovation of the lagoon, walkways, and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009.In addition to hosting art exhibitions, it remains a popular attraction for tourists and locals and is a favorite location for weddings and wedding party photographs for couples throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and such an icon that a miniature replica of it was built in Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim. Have you been here?
All my in-laws remain safe and fortunate in San Francisco. However, the wildfire smoke continues haze over the area, it hurts seeing people and animals lost their homes and loved ones; plants got destroyed; and fire has become the key feature of the state.
Always love and be happy with what you already have, give your hands to the ones who seek for help and support the hero who fight for us.

Traveller Tip From Coco ↠ During your next trip to San Francisco, consider exploring The Palace of Fine Arts. Its gorgeous architecture makes you feel like you're taking a step back in time. The Palace dates back to the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition and was constructed based on Roman and Ancient Greek ruins. Believe it or not, the structure was going to be torn down after the exposition but luckily has been preserved for future generations. The romantic destination is one of the most popular sites for wedding photography in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Palace's iconic dome has even been recreated at Disney's California Adventure. The Palace and its surrounding garden provide a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Be sure to bring food and have a picnic while you take in the incredible views.⠀

Trying to cup out my dairy as much as I can, so a good non-dairy ice cream is always a big help. Really like this @kippysicecream place in Venice 🍦

What’s your favorite city?
For me, I really can’t say! My friends joke that every city I visit, I come back saying “I loved it! I’d move there!” It’s no different for #sanfrancisco ! I’d totally move here (ignoring all costs! 😂) so how about you? Tell me your favorite city (or cities) below so I know where to visit next!
PS: to all my #sf locals, any recommendations on what to see, things to do, where to eat?! Would be so grateful for any shares! 🙏💕

Happy Tuesday friends!
It’s another smoky morning in San Francisco. l captured this image from Lower Pacific Heights with the BofA building and Salesforce Tower barely visible through the smoke. On a typical morning during this time of year both buildings would be perfectly visible, most likely with amazing clarity.
It’s surreal to have such bizarre weather, incredibly smoky skies, and devastating wildfires just a week and a half before Thanksgiving, with Christmas commercials playing on TV - it doesn’t feel right. 🤷🏻♂️
Having grown up here, I remember this time of year always being gray, overcast, and the rainy season was just beginning - which felt appropriate.
Anyway, hope you and yours have a wonderful day! 🤗
