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.

Merced River

The Merced River meanders through the Yosemite Valley right near the Ahwahnee Hotel.  It was so amazing to see this amount of snow here!  I wish I could take pictures here every day…but then go home to the “no snow” zone lol.

Stillness

I always like to jump in and be a part of things, but sometimes it’s hard when I feel things are in a turmoil around me or within myself.  And that’s what I adore about photography.  No matter what’s going on, I can stop and have that moment of stillness and peace by appreciating Mother Nature even when it’s not a serene scene that I’m looking at.  I don’t have to try and be a part of things or say or do the “right” thing.  I just AM.
