My cousin, P., arrived from Malta last weekend and the last 9 days have been quite the whirlwind adventure (hence my lack of updates and photos). For his first weekend in town, we decided to spend Saturday morning exploring the Ferry Building and grabbing drinks/lunch in North Beach.
The Ferry Building is awesome on Saturday mornings so we spent a few hours perusing the farmer’s market, popping into shops and enjoying the uncharacteristically beautiful San Francisco weather before heading to North Beach for drinks and a light bite.
We made our way to Panta Rei where we stocked up on $3 bellinis and Peronis in true Italian fashion. My aunt and uncle rounded out the crew and came up from The Peninsula to meet up with us for drinks and a quick bite before parting ways.
In honor of our international guest, we organized a family dinner/reunion to welcome him and allow everyone to say hi while he was in the US. I come from a pretty huge family (my mom has eleven siblings) so our get together ended up being a great reunion — I got to see some cousins that I hadn’t seen in almost 20 years! Insanity.
Lots of people, lots of food and an awesome time catching up with family members. It’s always great getting to reconnect with my cousins and it was even nicer getting to see everyone during the holiday season. Bonus: Boat Shoe Boy has officially been indoctrinated into the craziness of a Maltese family. Welcome!
Love from San Francisco,
