the kids and i headed across the golden gate earlier today,
cruising into the obnoxiously touristy town of sausalito.
(we arrived before the tour buses - phew)
we had a breakfast/lunch at the coolest/tiniest/yummiest diner.
the lighthouse cafe - beat the rush, worth the drive.
with our bellies full and counter intuitively - we headed to the marin headlands for a hike.
but first we found a beach and played with dead sea creatures and shells.
what is interesting about the headlands
is that the hills are littered with the detritus of military installments dating back to wwii...
it makes for fun and adventurous diversions throughout the hike.
we will be heading back soon, so as to finally track down the right trail to the point bonita lighthouse.
the kids are obsessed with tunnels,
and they know that trail has a tunnel -
thus our imminent return.
now we are back and thoroughly ensconced in the condo, with no plans to leave -
mostly because the world series is happening two blocks away and it is crazy out there!
