Watery Wednesday #13: Stinson Beach

19 May


A drive-by shot of Stinson Beach as we are coming in from scenic Highway 1.  Always full, this beach is one of most visited in NorCal.  Although the beaches of Northern California have cold waters, unlike that of our neighbors in the southern part of the state, that day in summer the water was just cool and not cold, 🙂

    I’ll have to come back to visit our blog to see northern CA! We just left San Fran and rode our bikes on some of the Bay to Breakers route. My friend Mary Kay ran it this year – she’s in her 70’s! I think she wore clothes.

    Ahh – I was pleasantly surprised to see a place I know and love.
    When I was there it was freezing and no-one was around, though 🙂

    Absolutely beautiful! It must be a pleasure to swim there! It also looks like an ideal point for windsurfing! I love California although I’ve never been there! 🙂 Have a great new day!

    A very beautiful angle shot. The scene is so inviting.
    P.S. The photo was taken at the California Adventure Park. There was a huge turn out because of the Food and Wine Festival.

    Wow, what a view! That’s a beautiful coastline and a great capture of it. I’m glad I’m not the only one who waits until they don’t charge. I thought I was just being cheap.
