On a recent trip out to the west coast, we decided to cross the Golden Gate Bridge and head up to Stinson Beach. Beautiful little town with a lovely seaside. We went for a early morning stroll, and were pretty much the only people out there. We did come across a seal sitting on the shoreline, and had a great time looking at creatures in the tide pools. Also found some very very nice sand dollars.
Had a wonderful and filling breakfast - smoked salmon Eggs Benedict with really good home fries. Also tried to go to dinner there, but weren't back in time for 9 PM closing. Good coffee as well, and you can see the beach from the window.
