A HAPPENING BY THE BAY

January 25, 2018

What a morning by the San Francisco Bay!  Flocks of geese and ducks were flying low across the water. Sea gulls were circling and the sound of barking seals could be heard echoing. What was the reason for all of this fun? The herring were in the water. On certain days every year the herring migrate to the shores of San Francisco Bay to lay eggs and all of Mother Nature knew that today was one of the days. Even the fishermen were out on this beautiful morning. What a sight!

Wow! What a day!

May 18, 2017

The sky is blue.  The sun is shining. On such a gorgeous San Francisco day it is hard to find a prettier location than Lands End. Located at the westernmost tip of San Francisco, the vistas are amazing. Whether you gaze at the Marin Headlands or back at the Golden Gate Bridge, this is the weather to enjoy such a unique spot. The trail is well groomed and a little over a mile so an easy walk with many view benches along the way. Or just spend some quiet time reflecting on the beauty or watching the ships pass under the mighty Golden Gate. In the mood for culture? Visit the Palace of the Legion of Honor. Beautiful exhibits and a beautiful building. Lands End is a special spot on a sunny day.

San Francisco Waterfront

March 17, 2017

Exciting news on the San Francisco waterfront.  Pier 29 has received the OK for the development of retail shops and hopefully a recreational area as well.  This pier has been vacant and unused for years and is a another step in the revitalization and beautification of the San Francisco waterfront area.  There will be shops – most selling homemade San Francisco goods – a wine bar, a coffee roastery, and a craft beer brewery.  We are looking forward to a wonderful addition to this exciting and beautiful area.

FESTIVAL OF THE WHALES

March 7, 2017

The 46th Dana Point Festival of the Whales got underway last weekend and lasts through March 12th.  It is a celebration of the the migration of the gray whale from feeding grounds in the Bering Sea of Alaska to the birthing grounds in warm waters off Baja California.  Undertaking this 5000 mile journey yearly, the whales pass the picturesque California beach town of Dana Point.  Located just south of Laguna Beach, Dana Point has been host to this entertaining and educational event for 46 years.  First and foremost for a visit is a not to be missed whale watching adventure to observe the majestic creatures up close – an adventure for which you need an advance reservation.  Other than whale watching there are many activities to entice and entertain the entire family.  There are art lessons, art shows and sales, sand sculpting, fishing, music, the Mobile Marine Mammal Museum, car displays, a town center walking tour and food.  It is a wonderful way to spend the day in a most picturesque spot by a beautiful California beach.  What could be better??  Many people descend on Dana Point each year for the festival so be prepared for crowds.  But the adventure and the opportunity to observe such magnificent creatures in their habitat on a yearly journey is definitely an experience not to be missed!  Check out the website for more information.                                                                                          www.powerhiking.com
