Let's Go To The Beach!

Hello Lovelies! My older sister is back home from college for the Labor Day weekend. As usual, when we have a guest, my parents and I took her out to explore some neighboring towns. Today we decided to show my sister the beautiful gem that is Stinson Beach!

Yes, I am a selfie loving teen. Surprisingly though, this is the only picture that I have of myself from the day. Sad, I know y’all were looking forward to a blog post dedicated to my face.

The day was sunny and the beach was packed, oh, what a perfect day. I thought the dog looked majestic while running through the water, and no, that is not our dog. It is a random one that I snapped a picture of…
After a day at the beach, we decided to stop in Olema for some food. While that was the plan, my dad realized that the tank was empty, so we took a detour to Point Reye’s for the gas station. My mom pointed out a very cute farmers market, so we had to walk around and see what it had to offer.

The garden was my favorite thing in the farmers market. Call me a hippie, but I love succulents, Buddha, and a water feature-that describes my ultimate reading corner! The market was pretty cute too, although everything in this farmers market was pricey, so no purchases made!

Can we just take a moment and appreciate this book? Found it in the market and thought it worthy of buying…but like I said, this market was expensive.
Now, for the important part of the day-the food! It seemed like I was waiting ages just so I can finally eat. Visiting two towns and not stopping at one of them for food was unbearable. I’m a grazer, I need to eat all of the time! We stopped at a restaurant called Farmhouse in Olema.

I ordered the fish tacos. For the price the meal was set at, I expected at least another taco. In the picture you can see that I was already half-way with one of the taco’s (I forgot to take a picture when it was delivered). I have to say, I was not impressed with the food. Maybe it’s because my mom sets high expectations with her own fish tacos, but these are not tacos I will recommend for any foodie.

My sister ordered the Crab Sandwich, there are two pieces of it but I was only able to catch a picture with one of the pieces. She liked it enough to want to share it. (Over-kill with the portion of fry’s though!)

My mother got the Manila Clam Linguine, which looked absolutely delicious! My dad ordered a cheeseburger with garlic fry’s. You can’t go wrong with this order!

All in all, today was a beautiful day for the beach! Stinson is my favorite NorCal beach to go to. I am actually very surprised that I didn't whip out a yoga pose, or two, on the sandy beach. Darn! Maybe next time!
