A July 2005 trip
to San Francisco by ext212
Quote: We decided to stay in the country for our summer vacation and planned a tour of Sequoia National Park, the vineyards of Healdsburg, and Monterey Bay Aquarium. Oh, and we ate in some of the best restaurants in the country along the way.

The owners, Ruthie Planas and Eric Shelton, were both pastry chefs in Aqua Restaurant before they decided to open Sketch. In true Berkeley style, every ingredient that goes into their cakes, ice creams, cookies, and cones are all organically grown.

Rarely seen jellyfish were eerily floating in large wall-mounted aquariums,
suspended in a way that was haunting and memorable. There were also towering
three-story aquariums that allowed all of us to see the sea turtles, sharks,
and barracudas as if we were diving with them. Sea otters were putting on a
show for the children in a two-story exhibit. There was also a splash zone
where the water would come in waves on glass ceilings above our heads.
