Muirwoods and San Francisco

On Saturday we decide to head up to Marin County to go to Muirwoods and check out the tall coastal redwood grove. It's been YEARS since I've been there and it was Toby's first time to actually enter the park. After hiking through the park, we drive to the coast to the Muirbeach overlook to take photos high above the coastline. We then drive to the marina area of Tiburon where we have a late lunch at the Mexican restaurant, Guaymas, where the skyline of San Francisco can be seen from across the bay. After our meal we head back into San Francisco to go shopping at the Sports Basement located at the Presideo's old Commissary building. We buy bike helmets there. We make a quick stop of the old pet cemetary nearby. During the sunset hour we make a quick drive over to Fort Point underneath the Golden Gate bridge. We then head over to the Castro for some coffee and a couple of drinks (for me).

After parking miles down the road on the busy Saturday, we finally enter Muirwoods.

Save the redwood forests! You didn't think we were tree huggers?

We head over to the coast on the clear day at the Muirbeach overlook.
