Doomed Weekend, Interesting Photos

For all that our Anniversary Trip Mark 1 was troublesome and stressful, we did manage to get a few decent pictures. I’ve finally managed to get through my photos from day one and here is what I have to offer:

The rocky bits in the middle of the picture look a bit like a face to me. North Beach is just one of the beaches that Point Reyes has to offer. It is the only one we have visited so far.

One of the things I have noticed about North Beach is the “Post Apocalyptic” vibe it seems to have. Probably the Teepees have something to do with this. I’ve noticed that driftwood sculptures seem to be quite popular on Northern California beaches, and this beach was no exception. This is the first time I’ve encountered Driftwood Sculptures with interior seating, though.

The Point Reyes Lighthouse has been around since 1870. I’ve visited it before, and I think it’s really interesting. We didn’t manage to make it before they’d closed for the day so we don’t have any closer pictures than this. I’m not too upset by this as…

There are 308 steps down to the lighthouse. Not so bad going down, but there are benches by the steps for a reason. That is a climb of many stories. I’ve done it once, and boy howdy.

Once we were done with the lighthouse (and my hands were numb with cold) we went back to North beach to photograph the sunset, then on to try some night shots of the Golden Gate Bridge on the way home. My camera doesn’t really do night shots.

There you are. The good parts version of the doomed weekend, day one.

    Post-apocalyptic! Yes, that’s it exactly.

    Wow – that’s a lot of stairs! I’d like to visit a lighthouse someday. (But maybe one with fewer stairs…)

    AH! When I first looked at the 3rd photo down…I thought that Kosh’s photos showed cartoon flames adjacent to the stairs. Nifty illusion! (red moss or lichen probably)

    Emma, I’ve been to a bunch more lighthouses. This is the only one with an insane amount of stairs.

    Sister Mine, ah but these are MY photos. (Muahahaha) And it is red moss as I recall. They have a sign up about it.
