I loved camping as a kid, but it's been a completely different experience from when I was young, to when I was older to having my own kid. It's definitely more work now but also with the most reward; getting to disconnect from the norm and go have nature adventures with the little ones. Now with Evie getting older and having her own camping buddies, I get to enjoy the views on the side with a glass of wine in hand 😉
Usually the back of the pack, we also had gotten used to Evie's little legs slowing us down on the hike. With all the new kiddos, we found ourselves at the front of the group as she now was not just the oldest kid at the campsite, but also with her big kid bike. 🚴♀️
1940-50s: Angel Island had been owned by the federal government for around 100 years, but on July 12, 1946, it was announced that the bay’s second-largest island (behind Alameda) would be sold. Army Lt. Harold E. George told The Chronicle that it would be turned over to the War Assets Administration in three to six months. “No other federal agency wants any part of the land,” he was quoted as saying. “The U.S. Public Health Service, which had a lease for 28 acres for its quarantine station, would happily move to the mainland.” The price it ended at before being taken off the market: $200,000.

Had the best Birthday 🎉 weekend with this amazing guy @philippe.legault - camping ⛺️ and exploring abandoned homes, buildings and wilderness on Angel Island...while enjoying in this amazing view of San Francisco from the middle of The SF Bay!!! 🌅🌁😎
Visiting Alcatraz Island is one of the best things I did in San Francisco. From the ferry ride and to the island itself, you will see the amazing views of the bay and the city. Special thanks to Sun and Eun for booking my tickets and accompanying me on my visit there. If you are interested to watch out your video, I uploaded it on Facebook and Youtube https://youtu.be/mcxGvwfpnH0
Title: Family Playground
Location: Willie “Woo Woo” Wong Playground
Photographer: Gavin Moon
This is a photo of a mother and her son walking towards a play structure at Willie woo woos playground. The photo has a theme of family A theme that captures the culture of the Asian communities. I don't personally know her and her son but I can assume that she’s either off work or is the stay at home mother that takes cares of the children while her husband works full time. I personally can relate to this photo due to when my mother and father used to work in SF, I would go with my father to visit my mother and after we would go to the park, I would have loads of fun that tiny secluded park. The theme of family is cemented in the Asian communities and I know that playgrounds are one of the many things that show this.
