One of my favorite outings with Earl—driving to Drake’s Beach in his MGB. Sir Francis Drake Blvd. takes you through varied terrains: rolling hills and redwood forest, past streams and ponds, as well as the Nicasio Reservoir and Tomales Bay. In a haunting, isolated stand of trees near the ocean, I had my first face to face with an owl. These views are the last before you reach the ocean.

Above the beach is a tiny restaurant where you can dine on fish and chips while seagulls peer down at you from above.

This was the first time I took my new camera on one of our outings—so I could record our progress to the ocean and relive the experience any time I wanted to.
