California Dreamin’ on such a winter’s day

If you know me at all, then you know I am a California girl at heart. When I need a reset, I head to the West Coast any chance I can. For me it is always centering and I come home refreshed and inspired by all the beauty.

I recently spent a fantastic week plus in Stinson Beach. (A short escape from San Fransisco, but feels like a million miles away). I have been through this area many times before, but opting to make this home base for a late January trip to California was perfect.

  1. Fewer crowds

  2. Lovely weather

  3. Off Season prices

  4. So many hikes to take advantage of right outside your door

You know I am a visual person, so I’ll share a few highlights of this special place. Shhh, it’s our little secret, right!? 😉 In this trip we explored Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Bodega Bay, and Rt. Reyes and Tomales Bay.

I could go on and on, but for now I’ll leave you with this…
