When Karl the Fog decides to take a vacation from the bay area the first place people gravitate to is the beach! A few weeks ago I took a friend out to Rodeo Beach with her dog Lola (remember Lola from the Napa session?) because it's one of the few beaches where you can let your dog off leash to enjoy a run in the sand. It's leash freedom in the wildest sense!
It's always nice to take a day to reset your mind and your soul, the mountains do that for me, and the beach does that for Abby and Lola. We walked, we talked, and the dogs dug their paws into the sand. A little harder for the short legged crowd, but they managed to find every dead fish and crab on the beach to roll in. You have to play to your strengths, right?
Do you have a favorite place to go to recharge? I love the smell of pine trees, shady forests, the crunch of needles under your feet, and clean mountain air. That is heaven to me!
