mini road trip, part one : the green hills of marin county

3.02.2010



these hills are, hands down, my favorite thing
about living in california.
i have always dreamed of visiting the
home of my ancestors, ireland,
but have not been able to get so far.

but the pictures i see of that land
seem to have an echo here on the west coast.



i love, love, love spending an entire day with ceej,
listening to our favorite music,
stopping whenever we please,
eating at little restaurants & bakeries along the way...




living on a farm out here would be a dream come true...
oh! the scenery!




and being so close to the sea,
watching storms come in and the sun go out...
can you imagine how wonderful stormy weather is out here?




we made friends with these cows in this pasture.
in the pasture we stopped at previous to this one,
the bull was oh so angry at us,
and barked us away.
i've never seen/heard a cow bark before.
he was mad indeed.
ah, springtime.




our mini trips to marin county always
end down at the ocean...

more photos of that tomorrow.

Marin County's mountain have a sense of friendliness to them. They're not rugged, just sweeping, and ever so green. I love them too.
I've always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon ride over that particular countryside. Alot of fun, wouldn't you say?

Oh I love Marin County! My husband and I spent our honeymoon there and it was the most beautiful week. We still feel sort of homesick for it and always talk about going back. I would live there in a heartbeat!!

I have an odd cow fetish where I think they are just the cutest animals. I love that cow picture! The colors are brilliant. I actually looked online last night for hotels in Marin County. I'm going to surprise the husband and take him there.

I had hubby look at these photos but told him not to look at the words and asked him where he thought they were taken. His guess was Yorkshire! We've got to visit Marin County sometime!
