Jumped out of the car to take some picture of light flowing through the
trees at the park but the real shot ended up being the Golden Gate Bridge
from Lincoln Park though the trees. This bridge is just hard to resist
taking pictures of. It is always changing.

A die hard surfer raises his arms to hail the Surf God for one more set.

Not far from Muir Woods sits a secluded, small beach where you and your dogs
can run free in the surf called Muir Beach. There are some homes along the
edge of the beach but for the most part they do not distract from the beach.
Only problem is that I often sit and wonder just what I would have to do to
own one of these homes. I doubt selling even my soul would buy me one of
these beautiful homes.

Since you can't catch a sunset buried in the redwoods of John Muir Woods, we
often jump in the car and make it down to Muir Beach to catch the sunset.
As you can see, this really worked out on this day. In the water you can
see a surfer as he sits on his board waiting for the next swell. This
image would lead you to believe that the swells were small but that was not
the case. He caught some great waves and I will post proof in the coming
days as I re-upload my sets.

This is life in California. Spending my weekends on the beach watching the
sunset with my wife, dogs and oh yes, of course, my cameras.

Walking though John Muir woods my wife spotted these brilliant bright yellow
mushrooms just beside the trail. I reconfigured the tripod due to the dim
light and took a few pictures. We poured a touch of water over them to
clear off the debris from the forest floor and got this shot. I've never
seen anything quite like it and am not sure what they are but someone
mentioned they were called Witches Butter. Though they do look similar I
don't think that was correct. They sure made for an interesting shot.
Will have to post to a mushrooms group and see if someone knows what they
are.

Thanks for checking out the photo.

I recently came across a story on CNN's website regarding a lost lighthouse
that had been located after 83 years. The Wellfleet Lighthouse in
Massachusetts had been thought to have been destroyed back in 1925 and lost.
Not so. As it turns out, it had been dissembled and brought to California
assumedly by rail and only recently discovered to be the one from the East
Coast. It eventually ended up at Point Montara where it stands today as a
Hostel on the Pacific Coast just south of San Francisco. It's a small
lighthouse being when compared to Pigeon Point just a few more miles down
the coast and is 30 feet. Along with a costal cypress and hostel gardens
it still makes for some really nice pictures. If you want to just kick back
and watch the sun sink in to the Pacific, it is an excellent place to do so
with several vantage points of the Pacific. On a foggy day, just sit,
listen to the surf and watch the beam of the lighthouse disappear in to the
fog. There several benches, and a swing bench near the lighthouse and
around the hostel grounds. There is also a small beach but it is a bit
inaccessible.

The Montara lighthouse lays about halfway between the Golden Gate Bridge and
Pigeon Point lighthouse. It makes for a good stop on a tour of the coast
between San Francisco and Big Sur.

We heard the ship from Pirates of the Caribbean was in town and went to see
her. She was docked at Humphries Restaurant on
the Sacramento River Delta in Antioch. Humphries was named for the whale
that swam up the delta. The food isn't bad but is a tad expensive for what
it is. The restaurant does have a good view of the Delta.

The ship is a remake of the original Lady Washington which was a 90 ton
merchant sloop which sailed around Cape Horn. This replica was built in
1989 and is the official ship of Washington state. If you have a mind to
you can sign on to her crew for up to several months. From what I hear, you
pay some and you have to carry your weight or walk the plank. Some
vacation. Much shorter tours of duty are also available to those willing
to try their hand at an old profession. And if you want for around $50 you
can take a 3 hour tour. We got to go down in her hull and I was shocked by
the cramped spaces. She wasn't much bigger inside than a small RV but then
we didn't get to see the whole ship. This version does have a contemporary
motor. She was also used in the Star Trek Generations movie at the
beginning of the movie. Both movies make her look much larger than she
really is. No matter, she is more graceful on the water than many ships.

She often sails with the Hawaiian Chieftain up and down the Pacific Coast.
You can view her schedule at www.ladywashington.org/
