There was always that terrible myth about being an artist: any artist is a starving artist. That's the reason my parents insisted on me studying business for the long 6 years of my life. Although, honestly, at that time I didn't know myself who I wanted to be anyway. I just knew in my heart I wanted to be in the arts.
I hope you are not tired yet of reading about our hikes as today I want to share with you another trail right in the city by the bay along the shore with the views of Golden Gate Bridge. They call it Lands End Loop.
Last Saturday Robert and I went for another hike. The weekend before was a bit of a let down since we didn't reach Tennessee Valley, we simply couldn't let it go and decided to take another shot. This time we started our hike not from the Rodeo Beach, but from another end, Muir Beach. In short, oops, we did it again. Plan successfully failed. The path to Tennessee Valley from Muir Beach is even longer and more vicious in regards to hills. So we took a shorter path (but nonetheless scenic) to Pirate's Cove.
A few months back I shared with you one of my favorite beaches,Rodeo. Now we decided to go ahead and explore some hiking trails around that area. Not that we are these hard core hikers. We are obviously not. But we thought it could be a great way to get ourselves outside and do something on the cheap. Honestly, the original plan was to hike from Rodeo Beach to Tennessee Valley. Yeah, we are definitely one of those, we do dream big. Unfortunately, we are so far from being in a perfect shape, we simply couldn't manage all that up and down under the heat. Sure, I also had my heavy camera with me, must-have equipment for every respected hiker. No water. No snacks. Just camera!
I must say, our little house in Sea Ranch lived up to every dream I had of what a life in the forest with an ocean view would be like. Serenity is the name of the house. And you wouldn't think of a better name. I literally don't remember the last time I experienced true silence. Honestly, on our first day there, I frequently had a feeling of being deaf, not that I know that feeling, but I imagine it's how it suppose to feel, just not hearing anything. Anything at all.
