In an effort to beat the heat on Father’s Day Bob and I left early for the beach and were rewarded with sparkling sunshine, no wind, and temps in the 70’s. I think we got one of the last five parking spaces at Doran Beach.
When we arrived at 9:30am many families were setting up camp on the beach with tents, coolers, chairs, sporting equipment and more. Our north coast ocean water does not beckon most of us to want to swim. We’re content to soak up sunshine without the blistering summer heat of inland.
By the time we left around noon, all the parking at the beaches was taken and the coastal road was jammed for miles and miles with folks from inland trying to make it out to Bodega Bay to escape the record breaking temps!
