We spent some time in Marin with my sister and family, which is where she settled after moving away from home and finishing college. Marin County is a special place to me as we spent a good deal of time here when we were younger. Shortly after my sister returned to Marin, she met a girl her same age and they began talking about this and that. At some point in the conversation, they realized who each other was - a best friend from Kindergarten. (My sister attended school in Marin for a period of time while our family took a break from the road and lived out of the Gypsy Wagon here). They're friends to this day. We started the day at Two Birds for breakfast:
The boys were treated to a bit of George Lucas while we we visited the area. Recently, George Lucas had a park built, (Imagination Park), which is a pretty little park in the middle of San Anselmo (one of many towns located within Marin County), complete with a tribute to Indiana Jones and Yoda. Later, we headed out to Naboo, (aka the forest near my sister's home), which is a planet in the Star Wars universe. The Ewok fight scene was shot here.
My niece, Kylie, named after our brother, Ky.
Later, we stopped by Toby's Barn in Point Reyes, and meandered about town. I love that my sister's yoga's classes are in a barn. This place always makes me happy - a modern day feed and farm store.
It was a beautiful day in Marin!
Now we're making our way home to Spokane. Where will we stop along the way? Stay tuned!
