If you go down to the woods today ...

After a morning of admin, washing and jobs, we rewarded ourselves by going on our first road excursion over the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods.

Though we did get a bit lost on the way and took a happy detour to Stinston Beach and had a little Route 1 coastline drive ... just beautiful to see the Pacific.

One of few Redwood forests remaining, it was a place of great tranquility.  Incredible to see the height and width that some of these trees grow to, and I found the smell of pine and bark wonderful.  We tried to get lots of lungfuls of clean air before making our way back to the city.

We had started watching Gone with the Wind last night, so after Skyping David this evening, we watched the second half.  It is a proper epic, a magnificent film.

Plus I used the opportunity to play with my new craft toy ... yay!  An early birthday present from Mr Fish :)
