DAY TRIP :: STINSON BEACH

by

First time we visited Stinson Beach, was on a gloomy day. The big ” beaware of the white shark” sign and Karl, the Fog as the only guest on the beach weren’t so inviting. We took some pictures – they even didnt’t make it to instrgam –  and continued our trip to Mendocino. The second time was on a Labor Day weekend. The white shark sign was still there, but there was no cloud in the sky and the white sand beach looked so bright and happy. That many San Franciscian cannot be wrong by choosing Stinson beach as their favorite weekend getaway. Stinson Beach is about 1h drive from San Francisco and it’s actually only few house and couple shops & restaurants big, but it’s a paradise for any surfers and beach lovers. Perfect for escaping the city bustler for a day. Start your day at the Breakers Café with dangerously delicious eggs benedict, than grab your beach blanket, sun umbrella, frisbee, some magazines, a snack from Stinson Beach market and spend the whole day on the beach. When the sun goes down it’s time to stroll the few shops on Highway 1 and to enjoy some sea food at Sand Dollar Restaurant before heading back home. This was such a regenerating day and I hope, whether tourist or local, you are going to make it to Stinson Beach for one day.

      Thanks Theresa! Yeah the pictures turned out very good. It must have been the light. But any other day is perfect for Stinson Beach too. Except the foggy one. ;)
