Views From the Road: Beaches #beaches #PointReyesNationalSeashore #MondayBlogs

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.

  4. Lovely pics and yes, yes, yes, I hope you do move to CA and then we could come and visit you when we’re in Tucson each winter, lol. But really, what is it about the beach that is so soothing, that calms us down, even in photos and videos? Thanks for posting this.

  5. I absolutely loved the day trip I took from SF to Point Reyes. It was fantastic with hardly any people at all.

      That was the nice part about going to the beaches during the week … few people, less traffic. The time before when we stayed at Lagunitas it was Labor Day weekend. Endless traffic on the narrow two-lane Sir Francis Drake Blvd. We wound up just walking to our friends’ house and not much less because of the traffic. On this trip, I got to listen to my girlfriend and her mates talk about how they just hide in their homes until Labor Day weekend is over. Too crazy for the locals πŸ˜‰
