Journey of a body on this earth

Muir Beach – Heaven


Taking a break from Mare Island, the other day we drove to Muir Beach to spend a couple hours enjoying the surf.  Heading north on Highway 101 north of the Golden Gate Bridge is the small “town” of Muir Beach.  It’s comprised of around 150 homes of mainly full-time occupants, who are lucky enough to enjoy the 2 beaches (Stinson Beach and Muir Beach), the surrounding Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mt. Tamalpais, and nearby Muir Woods National Monument.  This beautiful area is full of wildlife: Monarch butterflies in the pine trees, salmon in Redwood Creek, frogs in the pasture, fox, birds, deer, and coyote.

We spent a few hours walking around and laying down on the sand to hear the surf.  Ahh….I love our coast which on the perfect day can be pleasantly warm with fog slowly dissipating from the morning sky.

  1. I’ve been there. I loved going through the winding road there the redwood trees reside. California is a beautiful state.

  2. Beautiful! I see a little bit of fog hovering. Very nice.

  3. Wow.. I’ve been there and never taken in such beauty as captured with your camera

  4. One of my favorite places! Loveliness~

  5. Lovely image. This spot sounds like it has a lot to offer.

  6. I was in this area in the late 70s. I can’t imagine being lucky enough to live there.

  7. Indeed …. its to be blessed to live so close to the earth in its ‘natural state’ : ))

  8. ‘frogs in the pasture, fox, birds, deer, and coyote.”

  9. heavenly indeed. Love the mistiness!!

  10. Laura, “Heaven” is the perfect title for this lovely. I can’t imagine living out of driving distance of the ocean; it’s a favorite retreat for our family.
