What kind of Mother's Day traditions does your family have? Do you go out for brunch or do some activities together? When I was a kid, we mostly stayed home and spent time with the family. In the morning we woke mom by singing and taking breakfast to in bed for her. We also always had a mother's day cake and a gift. Later when my brother and I got older, we started taking our mom out for brunch.
This year I am going to spend my fourth mother's day as mom myself. I am not sure what is going to happen this mother's day but I would like to honour all the moms by telling about my mother's day last year. I was lucky to get a gift that I wont forget easily, it was a cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge at San Francisco Bay. Even though it was windy and chilly outside, it was a wonderful day.
Our cruise ship San Francisco Belle was an old fashioned river boat built in Louisiana in 1994. It looks beautiful and is the biggest dining yacht on the West Coast. As we were enjoying the brunch we also saw the city of San Francisco from the water which I had never seen before. San Francisco Belle offered traditional breakfast foods with bottomless mimosas and delicious desserts. Especially I remember the banana-bread pudding, yummy! Food was ok, nothing fancy, but we enjoyed the atmosphere and didn't go home hungry.
The highlight of the cruise was when we reached the Golden Gate Bridge. The ship turned around under the bridge and we got to see how different things looks like from the Bay. We also saw Alcatraz Island close by.
The rest of the cruise went fast since we had a DJ in the house and people were dancing and having some a good time. A lovely day in San Francisco!
Happy Mother's Day to all Moms and to my own mom in Finland!
