San Francisco, trip with Tim, 2005
We were only in California for 4 days, but we sure packed it in. I remember discovering cafes in the city, strolling through the redwoods, hiking on the Lost Coast's black sand beaches, and camping by the ocean. One morning I awoke at sunrise, crawled out of the tent into a golden light, and walked down the beach with my camera, marveling at the loops of seaweed, the sea-carved rocks, the rivulets of ocean water on the sand. It was a beautiful hour. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, Tim was back in the tent being startled awake by a large seagull who was repeatedly trying to land on the tent fly. Poor guy.
