Eco-Drive- Road Trip San Francisco & Sonoma

Woke up this morning to temperature in the 60s which is relatively cold for Hawaii folks. It got me missing catching snowflakes on my cider near the fireplace...and kissing under a mistletoe. Driving on I-95...road trips...speaking of road trips I really wanted to share my eco-road trip from last September. I've been a procrastinator in posting this blog. 
If you're planning a road trip and planning on renting a car, I suggest renting a vehicle from Alamo. You can prepay online and you can qualify for a discount. We had plans on using Dank's truck in OC but opt to rent a car which we got a great deal and saved us on making frequent trips to the gas station. We rented a Hyundai Sonata which had an eco boost feature which allows you to view how many miles to the gallon. We managed to drive roughly 500 miles from So-Cal to Sonoma on a full tank of gas. This trip I was bit more eco conscious...All the places we went to up Northern California did some sustainable practice of some sort. It just solidified how much I want to be to be more sustainable and do more good for our mother earth. What are you doing to help mother earth?

 Walking, which I did a lot of in San Francisco.

Dinner at The Stinking Rose. If you love garlic eat here

The girl on the left had wings on her shoes. Pretty fly I think.

Had dessert here: Pantarie

 Frangelico Nutty Coffee and traditional Bailey's Irish Cream coffee with whiskey at Buena Vista Cafe. Great coffee and great breakfast.

The Girl and the Fig was fantastic! They use seasonal food. I had the grass fed beef with bone marrow butter sauce.
