Angel Island 2017


Took my annual kayaking trip to Angel Island State Park in the San Francisco Bay. I would love to share pics while I was kayaking but my phone is always put away while I am paddling. We always come ashore on the old U.S. Army side of the Island:

The Army hospital built in 1904
We decided to take a hike and head to Pearls Beach, which I had never been to and it was totally amazing and beautiful:








I took one picture of both the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco from above Pearls Beach and from the beach itself (The first picture is above the beach and the second one is from the beach). I love the layer of fog:

Hopefully next year if I go to Angel Island via kayak, I can explore and share a new place on the island.

  1. It's always so lovely for me when people share photos of places I would probably never get to see in real life. Angel Island looks lovely and filled with history. I would love to be able to go someday

  14. In this next year I will be up in SFO regularly and have every intention of going here. It is something that we have not made the time for previously but it is time now.

  16. There's an Angell Park nearby but it's for midget auto racing and such. What a charming and beautiful place the Island State Park is.

  17. It's always fascinating to walk in the footsteps of others who lived so many years ago and to think about how their lives played out in that very place. Beautiful photos! Good luck with your kayak trip!

  18. Wow, looks like a perfect adventure! My favorite photo is the driftwood at the beach, so "living" with the shadows.
    Thanks for joining, greetings from Germany

  19. That's a log kayak trip. You must be amazingly good at it, well done. I bet the trip back looking at the iconic city is breath taking. The picture of the bridge with the fog is truly beautiful. I love it.
