outings: pelican inn and muir beach

September 20, 2010


i spent my misty wet sunday at the beach. I did a hike of the costal fire road and surrounding area in and around muir beach. It was a pleasant temperature but very very wet. After 4 hours hiking we decided to take a bit of cover at the Pelican Inn. Its the most charming little english inn nestled at the entrance to the beach. You really feel as though you have been transported back 100 years an to england.


We cozied up in a corner next to dark panels and tapestried benches and ordered beers and the most delicious beef stew and a cheese plate. its was heaven.
We stayed for hours it continued being wet outside and yet was incredibly bright which made the ambiance inside even more welcoming. Once we dried off a bit and were warmed by the good food, spirits and company we were off again. Spend the afternoon romping on the beach and making little collages out of our findings.

hiking with a side of lunch – stinson beach

March 21, 2010


San Francisco has had absolutely beautiful weather this week and so today i took advantage of that and went up north to Stinson beach for a hike and a bit of lunch – down through some prehistoric looking forests fully alive with maiden hair fern, mosses and lots of wild flowers including a wild orchid and iris –

then out into the cute little town of stinson – it really reminds me of my new england upbringing with is beachy colors and charming little buildings


hope you all enjoyed your saturdays too!
