Let’s face it; there are a lot of us out there who aren’t crazy about our jobs. For me the hardest part of my 9-5 is the rigid schedule and routine of having to be in the same place every day. Luckily, I was able to negotiate a weekly work-from-home day, which has been a saving grace. I’ve also found that an escape into nature is a perfect reset.
Bolinas is an easy day trip from the San Francisco Bay Area and one of my favorite places to be during the summer months. On a good day, it’s about as warm as you’re going to find it here on the beach in summer.
During my first year living in San Francisco, I was lucky enough to have a good friend take me to Bolinas for my birthday. There are no signs to follow and you’ll have a hard time getting directions. It’s a reclusive place and residents do their best to steer people away. Likewise, it’s not my secret to tell. All I can say is that it’s definitely been a gift that keeps on giving.
