Point Bonita Lighthouse has sat on a rocky outcrop, safeguarding the entrance to San Francisco Bay, since 1877. The only way to get to it is by walking down a steep path, through a tunnel hewn through rock and across a vertigo inducing, swaying suspension bridge. Tom and I last visited this lighthouse two years ago, just […]

Just a short post with some photos.  Margaret was taking a class in Sausalito so I tagged along and while she was in class I took a few photos.  The weather on Saturday was pretty lousy but Sunday it cleared up a little bit so I headed out to the Marin Headlands above the Golden […]

One of our favorite places to take photos of the Golden Gate Bridge is the overlook at Battery Spencer. Nearby there is a trail head and I often wondered where it led to. I decided to do some research on the Marin headlands and eventually found a trail map. I discovered the trail lead to […]

Well this time it’s a little different.  Normally Margaret does the writing and I do the photos but this weekend she’s attending a class in Sausalito so I tagged along.  This will be more photos and less talking. I was kind of bummed because it looked like rain for Saturday however after an overcast start […]

Another expedition to San Francisco but this time by car.  As usual we left early, with a full moon shining brightly in front of us for most of the way up Highway 280.  Once again, we are not quite sure what the weather will be like.  We know it will be cooler than the last […]

There was not only a full moon last night but it was also the biggest moon in fifteen years.  As today promises to be a nice day, and hopefully no fog, we decided to leave really early (we were on the road by 5 a.m.) and drive to Crissy Field in the city to see […]

If you like raptors, now is the best time of the year to observe them at close quarters at several points in the Bay Area.  For more information read Tom Stienstra’s recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle. Today we decided to go to Hawk Hill on the Marin Headlands.  Tom and I have been […]

This might not be a good idea.  We leave home at 5.30 in the dark.  As we approach San Francisco on Hwy 280, the fog blankets us.  It will probably be foggy at Baker Beach and we may not be able to see the Golden Gate Bridge. First stop though is Peet’s on Geary for […]

After our abortive visit last Saturday, we made our second attempt today. Once again we stopped at Peet’s on Geary but this time I remembered to take my bag with me and we didn’t get a parking ticket. The weather today is not so good as last Saturday. No wonderful views of the city or […]

After two weekends of stormy weather, we were keen to get out and about again. We decided to head for the Marin Headlands. As usual we left well before daybreak, just stopping at Peet’s on Geary Street in San Francisco to get some coffee. At 7.30 a.m. we were crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. We […]
