long weekend adventure

Having an extra weekend day is wonderful. Somehow I am always able to get infinitely more done with just 24 more hours. This weekend a friend asked if I wanted to join her on a hike with her dog so we headed over to the Marin headlands and started walking. I don't think we were really prepared for quite how steep the whole thing was, there was a lot of scrambling up very steep rocky hills (felt more like climbing cliffs!) but the scenery was beautiful the whole way. It started out clear and blue skied and incredibly hot.

Then as we turned a corner towards the ocean the fog started trailing in between the hills. It got very moody, there were sections where you couldn't see anything beyond the particular path we are on. I'm sure on a clear day the view is spectacular, but there was a certain neat something  going on with all the fog.

There were some old grafittied bunkers (with this spectacular panda above!) and other various military buildings, even a giant cannon. And eventually we got to the ocean which reminded me of home, though perhaps with higher cliffs. Finally we crossed the beach and went through a short section of woods and were back at the car. It was a perfect day for a walk and I'm sure we will go out there again for more exploring.
