I cant wait to head back !!
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.
strolling around amsterdam across the canal i spotted just what i had been looking for “antiek” …and antique store. my week here was spend scouring for this word but this little, or should i say large shop, inside and out, made my heart skip a beat!
the old hospital – i have a little dream that this would make a perfect B&B – its such a shame that all these old buildings are going unused because they are truly beautiful
i want to live here – look at that view!! hope you enjoyed this little virtual tour of angel island for more info click here
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 –
last night in the spirit of halloween we carved two of the sugar pumpkins that had arrived earlier in the week’s produce box. it was especially fun as sean, being irish, had not carved a jack o’lantern before. pretty good for his first ever!!
