Tiburon and Belvedere are places I would go last, unless you're uber-rich, since property prices there are so high, you might end up paying more in taxes than you can afford! However, Belvedere enjoys the lovely views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay!
Please do - the more photos I see the more I can keep my dream alive and my goal in focus - many thanks

I will indeed. Check out Bay Area in Images and discover my take of Marin County (called The Bay Area from a Local on my signature, apparently!). And I will make sure that I'll tour even more of my own county so that you can gain even more inspiration along the way!

I thought I put in the @ symbol, but, it's ok!
No Muni... All on foot.

That's a lot of walking (exercise!) for you then! I would take MUNI part of the way myself to help me get to where I want a little quicker... but if I have time to spare, I'd walk all the way.

Half Moon Bay
2012.11.21

A bit further south of Pacifica is Half Moon Bay, another great beach town in San Mateo County. I dropped by the day before Thanksgiving last year for some hiking along the coast.

As usual we start off at Millbrae Station after taking BART:

A short ride on Caltrain and SamTrans gets us to Half Moon Bay State Beach... Turned out to be a fantastic day to go as the weather was great and there weren’t many people.

Looming in the background are the northern peaks of the Santa Cruz Mountains that separate the coastal towns along Highway 1 from the more populous regions of the Peninsula along the San Francisco Bay shoreline. From here, it’s only a 20-30 minute drive into San Francisco, although the isolated location means it takes quite a bit longer by transit.

Over a century ago, plans for the “Ocean Shore Railroad” would have taken trains along the coast between San Francisco and Santa Cruz, passing along the edge of this open space atop the bluffs. Those plans never materialized, although vestiges still remain along the proposed alignment, including these houses along “Railroad Avenue” in Half Moon Bay.

El Granada, as we continue north towards Pillar Point…

Passing along Mirada Road in Miramar, one of several small unincorporated beach communities in this area including El Granada and Princeton by the Sea… The Coastal Trail disappears here, as the development runs right up to the beach.

Pillar Point Harbor

image hosted on flickr


image hosted on flickr


Like Pacifica, the Half Moon Bay area is a popular surfing spot… Pillar Point Harbor (more accurately part of Princeton by the Sea, but frequently associated with Half Moon Bay) is home to the Mavericks, an annual surfing competition. The surfing window opened in November but they are still waiting for the perfect waves for this year’s event.

In the distance is Miramar… There’s only a narrow strip of riprap protecting these homes from the water.

Several riprap jetties extend well out into the water to form the harbor, offering a great place for saltwater fishing.

Late lunch was clam chowder and a yummy lobster roll at Sam’s Chowder House on the beach in El Granada… A bit on the pricey side, but delicious.

I. Am. Amazed. You've really traveled all the way to Half Moon Bay by transit? That's really awesome! I would really like to visit where you've gone to so that I can enjoy it myself. Spectacular beach and sunset shots, my friend! Well done!

We're on the same boat indeed! Have you taken any shoots in Marin County, aside from the Headlands? I have been taking shoots lately in Sonoma County, and I find it more interesting with each new visit I make.

Marin County's a bit inaccessible for me, and I've only rarely ventured north of Sausalito.

Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area
2012.12.09

A 20-minute walk from Fremont BART Station gets us to this secluded park featuring a series of small lakes (once gravel quarries) and creeks at the west end of Niles Canyon. We enter at the southern end by crossing Alameda Creek, which runs from Niles Canyon to the Bay. Gravel from these quarries was used to lay tracks for the Transcontinental Railroad.
