wore this outfit over the weekend to visit the lick observatory on the top of mt. hamilton in the south bay. we’ve frequently gone on day trips up mt. tamalpais and mt. diablo, so we decided it was high time we explored another mountain top in our area. it was a long and very windy road up to the top and we couldn’t believe how freezing cold it was up there. the car thermometer read 37 degrees and we could even see a few chunks of ice along the road. needless to say, i wasn’t prepared even when i pulled on a big coat and wrapped myself in a blanket that we keep in the car. so we poked around, took a look at a big telescope, and made our way back to civilization.
rather than head right home, we decided to to a bit of exploring in san jose. we happened upon a big vintage shop called black and brown where i managed to score a ton of new stuff. all of the kids working there were very sweet and chatty, and we actually got a good recommendation for a dinner spot where we feasted on spicy jerk chicken. all in all, it was a very pleasant way to spend a weekend day.
