Mum & Dad, having completed their main tour from San Diego back up to San Francisco, now have a couple of weeks with me in the Bay Area. We took the opportunity of having good weather to cross the Golden Gate and spend the weekend in Marin. Day 1: antique shopping in Petaluma, and Day 2: a fantastic walk in the sun, retracing our steps to Alamere Falls. After the manufactured saccharine charms of SoCal, I think it was a breath of fresh air.

Crossing the bridge never gets old - it's stunning.

Hold onto your hats!

What a team.

We retraced the steps we made in the summer hike to Alamera Falls, back in July

Even though 99% of people make the detour to the beach, the rangers seem to ignore this fact, and mark it unmaintained.

View out to Point Reyes - very much need to go there some time soon.

One more for good measure

The trip back ... and you are reminded that you are in Marin - the wackiest collection of individuals this side of, well, San Francisco
