Day at Stinson Beach

Stinson Beach

At least once a year we try to take a day trip to Stinson Beach.  It is located in the Bay Area (near San Francisco) and is about a two hour drive for us.  There is something about the ocean that tugs on my spirit, so our yearly trip is always a day of refreshment for me.  Just me and Brent driving with windows down with green lush mountains all around us.  It fills my soul.

It was a perfectly overcast day for a picnic lunch at the beach.

What I love about Stinson Beach is that it is always cold.  Even in July.  I love the beach but I would much rather prance around in my skirt than wear a swimsuit and worry about sunscreen coverage. 

We take lots of photos and climb rocks.

And because surely someone will ask, we take photos of ourselves with a tripod.  You can read all about my tips for taking amazing pictures of yourself here.

  1. I can't get over how cute you two are! And I'm not a swimsuit/sunscreen type of gal either.

  2. The ocean certainly re-energizes me. I love stepping on the sand barefoot!

    We haven't been to Stinson beach in YEEEARS (literally!). Have to change that!

    Happy weekend!

  3. You take such cute pictures with your husband! My husband (love him as much as I do!) is not a fan of pictures, so it's rare for us to get pictures together....although I am continuing to try! :-)
