After our weekend in San Francisco, my husband and I drove (or he drove and I rode) to Lagunitas, a small town in Marin County, near Point Reyes National Seashore. When we lived in San Francisco in the late 1980s, we would occasionally cross the Golden Gate Bridge and spend a day hiking around the park. Even back then, driving to and from Point Reyes took up a good portion of the day; so it was a real treat to spend a few days close by, wasting less time driving and spending more time in awe.
Our first full day, we settled ourselves at Bodega Head: Greg to do a time lapse, me to run around and take still photos of rocks and waves. It’s when I’m in a place like this that I always ask myself, “why did we leave?”
I could watch this video all day:
A couple of days later, we went to Limantour Beach … because it’s there.
Well, the beach is actually here …
Our final beach visit was Kehoe Beach where we stayed long enough for Greg to do a short timelapse.
Here’s a nice panoramic video of Kehoe Beach:
And, finally, 31 seconds of Zen …
By the time we were fixing to leave Lagunitas for Reno, I was crossing fingers that by the time I retire, the housing bubble will have burst and we could afford to live in Petaluma. Just California dreaming … cue The Mamas and the Papas.
