The North Bay's Coolest Beach

While Marin County is well known for some of it's more alluring beaches on the Pacific Ocean, my favorite (and now Brenna and Colin's) has always been at China Camp State Park, not too far from where I grew up. I spent a lot of time here with family and friends over the years, and it's fun to see our kids enjoying this spot.

We took a quick trip over there recently, and it's exactly the same as how I've always remembered it: calm waters, perfect rocks to toss and skip, gentle breezes, and long-time resident Frank Quan giving tours of the Visitor Center and Fishing Villlage artifacts.

We chatted briefly with Frank as he worked around the house he still lives in, and I thought about how many years he has spent staring out onto this amazing spot.

Here are some pictures of our trip:
