Summer of Love

It was 1967 and the San Francisco Bay Area was a magnet for young people who were questioning just about everything in their lives ~ from an their dress, hair styles, sexuality to the government’s involvement in a controversial war in Vietnam.
It was a time of experimentation with art, drugs, in musical styles, and relationships.

This summer is the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love. There will be a number of interesting events to celebrate this milestone in modern history. So pull out your old tie dyed clothes, put on your peace symbol jewelry, don a crown of fresh flowers and join in the fun!

The Bay Area afforded her opportunities to explore the outdoors, the great culture of the City, and to develop deep relationships with people from a wide variety of lifestyles. Now retired from a career first in the hospitality industry and later as an administrator in public higher education, she is actively pursuing her love of food, people and places.
