Play In Nature: Hello Handsome, Good Morning Gorgeous

A fragrant romantic country estate in high style is Filoli. After the 1906 earthquake, many wealthy San Francisco families relocated to the Peninsula and built made to measure large estates. Filoli is the last of these estates, built by Mr and Mrs William Bowers Bourn II, who lived here between 1917 and 1936. Today, the estate is open to the public and features the grand cinematic quality and sweeping views of neoclassical gardens of the renaissance and space for explorers of all ages. The name itself: Fi: fight for a just cause, LO: love your fellow man and Li: live a good life offers a fascinating la dolce vita for people who want to live inside a Matisse painting. Our son loves to run in the big gardens encompassing approximately 16 acres - that's the size of 12 football fields. The villa itself has 36,000 square feet and played a role in numerous Hollywood motion pictures. Nurture your agrarian roots with plants and wildlife including wild Peacocks and Turkeys that freely roam the land. There's no place like Filoli for urbane renewal in the most beautiful garden in San Francisco and Silicon Valley.

Live A Lot: Your God Is What You Pay Most Attention To

Running, swimming, playing on sand and laughing at Aquatic Park Beach in San Francisco every day this week. My three years young son in his Calvin's enjoying time off from his private pre-school.

Summer Of Love: Modern Nature

You know that feeling you get when you're really enjoying yourself and you suddenly realize you've lost all track of time, worry, stress, work and boredom. Things you can part with in San Francisco:

That weight off your shoulder
Half a dozen pounds
Impending deadlines
Lack of clarity
Two days worth of tension
Track of time

Hearts And Minds: Learning To Scull In San Francisco

Happy hour is the hour after everyone from happy hour has left. A lot of running, climbing and sculling in boat number one with long oars on Stowe lake in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.
