Such a terrific day! For this trip we decided to rent a mini van. Learned on this trip. GPS is great. Rob really dislikes navigating new, big cities in a car....he loves public transportation. The rest of us, loved the convenience of the rental, however the kids were crazy, silly the entire time. Led to some exasperated parents. However, our destination for the day was Muir Woods, it did not disappoint.
It was beautiful!
Everywhere you looked it was green. With a beautiful stream running through.
The trees were not a large as maybe the redwood forest, but they were so tall and beautiful. They had signs up all throughout telling people to try and be quite, to enjoy the purity of nature. Such a beautiful experience.
Massive and beautiful.
It was neat to be together and experience it together. We are such an outdoor family, it makes us happier.
As we were leaving the park we even had the chance to see some new fox kits that had a den right by the boardwalk. William was in heaven.
So, after Muir Woods Rob decided since we were so close we should stop by Muir Beach. We were not prepared for this. Had I known, I would have brought a change of clothes....
As it was, everyone walked away soaking wet and very happy with the impromptu beach trip.
They built forts in the sand, added rocks and sea weed. Ran from the waves, played together and loved every minute of it. It was a successful day!
