Though we have called many places "home", The Bay governs my heart.
The rolling hills, the temperate climate, the easy spirit of its people.
Its ability to be able to house cultures without judgement.
You can see it in the people, their attitude, their acceptance.
An almost fairytale, where tattoos mix with Ralph Lauren and bikers mix with mohawks, reds with whites, with blacks, with browns. All walking together.
We had 5 days to visit, meet and greet, and kiss and hug, and giggle while catching up. There was a Wedding, a coffee date, a day in the sun, and many meals with loud talk. Tagalog and English, flashbulbs all around, tuxes and barongs, flowers and fresh fruit, church bells and dancing.
I do believe that the shortest trips make for the best memories.
