Bolinas, California

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to live in Bolinas. We drive there often, mostly just to surf. But when the surf isn’t happening we walk, talk and dream about what our lives would be like if we called Bolinas home.


In the 1960s, Bolinas was a small fishing village with a few vacation homes along the cliff and beach.


Now Bolinas is a quirky town in West Marin full of surfers, artists, musicians, old hippies, retired millionaires and a few small shops.


2 Mile Surf Shop is a great resource full of highly skilled surfers. I have asked them tons of stupid questions over the last seven years and they have never given me crap.


I often dream about owning a small organic spa like Sandra’s.


or a shop like Judith’s Herbals. She (Judith) makes the most adorable organic potions which has to be one of the best jobs ever!


Or maybe I could work at the Coast Cafe where at least I would always be well fed.

  1. I love small towns like that! Being that I live in Phoenix where besides being HOT it’s packed with people… a small town has always appealed to me. Sometimes I wish we could get up and jus move somewhere like this… but I’ve lived here for 20 of my 25 years so I really don’t think I could go anywhere. But I sure do think it would be great!

  2. I think Steve and I visited Bolinas once, while out for a “drive” a few years ago and I do remember it being charming. I can see why you dream of making this home. We too dream of a weekend house up north on the water.
    One day, one day!

    Gorgeous pics, btw! What camera are you using these days?
