When Tom and I discussed where we would go the day before, we realized that we hadn’t been to Coyote Hills Regional Park for over five years so it was about time we revisited. It was extremely difficult though to drag myself out of bed the next day, especially when I saw it was a […]

Año Nuevo is our main destination today. This is the best time of the year to see the elephant seals because both the females and the males are in residence. The females came ashore in December to give birth to their pups and the males arrived a bit later to start organizing their harems. Between […]

For this trip we decided to take a drive along Skyline Boulevard. This highway starts in San Francisco on Sloat Boulevard and heads towards the ocean and then south all the way to Highway 17. It is called Skyline because it lies along the ridge of the coastal range of mountains between the ocean and […]

It has been some time since we had the chance to write about our travels. We have had two sets of visitors from the UK and though we have been out and about, I didn’t take my notebook. One of the visitors was our granddaughter, Lissie, who is just four years old. We had a […]

After our breakfast at Bill’s, we made our way to Palo Alto. As it was the rush hour, we took a circuitous route. Our destination was The Baylands Nature Preserve to the east of 101 next to Palo Alto Airport and just north of Shoreline and Moffett Field. We parked in the Byxbee Park car […]

We had a nice early start with a stop at Peet’s on Geary in the city for our wake-up beverage.  North of the Golden Gate Bridge, we took Sir Francis Drake Blvd towards Point Reyes.  The views after driving through Fairfax were really pretty, especially with the sun just starting to lighten the sky.  Along […]

It was just after 8 a.m. when we hit Highway 1 heading south from Santa Cruz.  We were later than normal but it made a change for me because I saw more of the scenery coming over the Santa Cruz Mountains. This section of Highway 1 is not so pretty as driving north from Santa […]

After eating all those calories in Bucks Cafe, it is time to walk them off. We arrive at the Old Stage Picnic Area and Trail Head car park on Edgewood Road just after 9 and already it is full. We managed to grab one of the two remaining spaces. As soon as I open the […]

Last night the clocks ‘sprang’ forward so we had an hour less in bed. We were up though soon after 5 and set off at 6. It was still dark and we were expecting less traffic on the road. After all it is Sunday and how many people are as daft as we are? Well, […]

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 […]
