Stinson is a rare bird among Northern California beaches,
and maybe the only one north of the Golden Gate that really
feels like a classic, little beach village. Our friends
Lang & MJ visit for a week or two every summer, and we usually
manage to make it down there for a day (and sometimes overnight
if Lang breaks out the Ketel One).
This year we had to leave after dinner, but we took the
scenic route home, the beautiful drive up Highway 1 along
the coast and through the western farmlands of Marin and
Sonoma counties, from Bolinas through Olema, Point Reyes
Station, along Tomales Bay and up through Valley Ford
On drives like this, I'm always amazed that there can
still be these beautiful and unspoiled rural lands so
close to California's crowded centers.
Makes me feel pretty lucky to live where I do.
