Saturday In The Park (Skywatching)


This past Saturday was to put it mildly simply pleasant. The sky was blue nary a cloud in sight, the sun was shining brightly, and the weather was perfect - nearly 70F. So what's a girl to do? Go out, visit fave walking park and walk. Don't forget the camera.

I have featured this park here a few times. The park I'm talking about is POINT PINOLE REGIONAL SHORELINE.

And so with the weather so nice and all the chores taken care of, the hubby and I went out about 3 PM to have a little exercise. We also had an ulterior motive. We were there to scout the group camp site that opened in the park. Our church group is planning on a camping trip this summer and this is one of the parks that was thrown in the hat last year, so it was time to check out the group site, and because the site is situated all the way to nearly the edge of the park, near the waters, we knew we would get a good walk.


This park is home to many eucalyptus trees with a few impressive trees like this one.


It's so beautiful. Only God can make a tThe ree.

Not far from this spot was the group site. We found that it was not large enough for our group, even though the site was supposed to hold 30 campers. Since we were all the way in the back we decided to tread where we haven't tread before :)


Blue sky + blue water.
