When I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere special for our anniversary, I looked at a ton of different places around San Francisco and the bay area.
I wanted the day to be special, so I decided to take my girl to the Japanese Tea Gardens. This San Francisco landmark has been around since the late 1800’s. It was built as part of the World’s Fair attraction and it is still a part of Golden Gate Park that attracts thousands of visitors each year. My favorite part of the Tea Garden is the sprawling trees that are pines, cyprus, magnolias and the most beautiful flowering cherry tree. The park is always masterfully landscaped to pristine condition. This spot in Golden Gate park was the perfect place for our anniversary date. I packed a lunch with wine, cheese, grapes, and finger foods. I carried the picnic basket the entire time until we found a place to sit and relax. We talked for hours about life and love and our families. It was the perfect day, until we were getting ready to go home. I had a flat tire and we had to call a tow company. At least we were stuck by a marijuana dispensary. After seeing the flat tire, a marijuana cigarette seemed like the perfect way to calm down. My girlfriend and I walked across the street and picked out some recreational marijuana supplies. California is well known for having very lenient weed laws. It’s easily one of the biggest reasons why young folks move here. It’s one of the reasons why I love living on the west coast.
