We used to go to the beach very regularly, but lately those trips have become less and less frequent. North Salmon just outside Bodega Bay was our favorite beach, in recent years that was replaced by Rodeo Beach on the Marin Headlands.
Last week, though, during out "staycation," we decided to go back to North Salmon and, wouldn't you know, it was foggy. Okay, not really "foggy" but there was a heavy marine layer and that didn't lift until after we left. Didn't bother us a whole lot, we came to walk and we got out nice, leisurely walk in, marine layer or not.
There weren't a lot of people on the beach, I guess they all waited until the sun was out, so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves.
The first thing we saw, was this cool old car in the parking lot. We managed to talk to the owner after our walk and found out it's a 1941 Ford. He bought it restored and it's obviously his "surf mobile." All the stickers - and there are many, many, are surfing related and he was there to surf. He and L compared surf spots for a little while.
The seagulls didn't mind the fog - or much else, for that matter.
No idea what kind of bug this is, pretty big and not too happy at having his picture taken.
