Rainy days in the Northwest always make me yearn for happy days in San Francisco. Why? I don't know. I lived in SF for many years, and I know they have their gloomy days too, but they have one thing that is lacking in my life right now...a good macaron. If you're in the San Francisco, head down to the Ferry Building, enjoy the tastes and smells from all the vendors, but make sure to take a box of macarons from Miette back to your hotel room...mmmmm, go have one for me.
