Day trip to Muir Beach
January 20th, 2011
On Sunday1/16 Carleigh, Scott, Bailey, Kevin, Lola and I piled into Carleigh’s little Jetta and took a day trip to Muir Beach for an exciting day in the sun! We had every intention of spending our day at Muir Woods but were sad to find out that John Muir hated dogs the park didn’t allow pups. So we drove another five minutes down the road to beautiful Muir Beach and were not disappointed!
It’s a short two minute trail walk to the beach–the beach itself is expansive with lots of room for friends, families and doggies to play around. We saw some folks had put up tents to spend the whole day there and Kevin and I would love to go back and do the same some time. The water was a nice, cool temperature (not ice cold like the beaches in SF) and it was pretty shallow water for a good 40 feet or so.

After a half hour or so of hanging out on the beach, we decided to take a hike to Pirate’s Cove. We climbed up and up and up some very steep hillsides and when we thought we were finally at Pirate’s Cove, we found out we weren’t even half way there! So we settled for a view of Pirate’s Cove off a beautiful cliff.

Can you see Carleigh & Scott? They’re that tiny spec in the middle of the photo.

On our way back we came across two women on horseback with their dog–Lola, turns out, is not the biggest fan of horses.
