We stopped by after visiting Muir Woods National Monument earlier this year on our holiday vaccay to Northern California and Hawaii, Muir Beach. A cove, lagoon and beach that’s nestled along the coast by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mount Tamalpais State Park. Though it was January it was still busy when we got there near sunset with a switch from the day beach goers to the dusk beach goers.
We didn’t stop long, only exploring the beach not the beach overlook as we wanted to look around Sausalito before it got dark. It was enough time for me to understand the magic of California beaches. All beaches have their charm. Maybe it’s the hype, maybe it’s because California is known for its beach life, maybe because it was my first California beach, maybe it was the mid winter light. Either way I can see why California beaches and the
sea ocean draw people under their spell.
Mountain overlooking the parking lot and beach. The parking lot building’s chimneys mark the change in architecture from city style San Fransisco and Southern California into cooler climate of Northern California.
Mail boxes opposite the road leading to the beach. I love the repurposing a filing cabinet and an old British post box!
