Exploring Angel Island

Some years ago, never mind how long precisely, having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the 
world.  -   Herman Melville

Taken last week from our day-trip to Angel Island, on the Perimeter trail/road looking back towards Tiburon. (added a little Instagram finish!)

I highly recommend this short ferry ride into the middle of San Francisco Bay to Angel Island. Fascinating history of California and so much natural beauty to soak in on a easy day-trip.   Ferries are available leaving the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero in the city, or you can drive into Marin and take the ferry from Tiburon.

Stunning views, and great places to hike and see the entire bay from a different perspective. If you are not into hiking (walking) you can bring your bike, rent bikes, take a Segway tour, or even take the Tram tour. We did bring our picnic basket, but there is a Cantina and a Cafe on the Island if you forget to pack your lunch!

For more info - check out the California State Parks site: Angel Island

 Have a great Saturday everyone!
