Little Free Library in Bolinas, California!

Little Free Library in Bolinas, California!

Last weekend was my husband's 55th birthday! So, we spent Friday, September 15th through Sunday, September 17th in Bolinas, California relaxing to celebrate his birthday this year.

Bolinas, California is a very small, coastal town roughly 90 minutes north of San Francisco, Califonia. We stayed in a very rustic AirBnB during our visit that was situated in a very lush perennial garden in a rural part of town. Loads of quail, hummingbirds, butterflies, and bullfrogs could be seen and heard during our short weekend getaway.

This little free library was just sitting by itself on the side of the road on the way to Agate Beach... Agate Beach is known locally for its tide pools during low tide and is a local tourist attraction. I left four books at this particular little free library.

Visiting Bolinas, California was a mixed bag of tricks! It was out first visit there, but am not sure we'll return in the future. I liked the small town vibe and that it wasn't very touristy. There isn't much going on there at all. There were two areas to take beach walks, hiking trails if you're into that, and a very small downtown with a handful of eateries. Cellphone reception is very spotty unless you are in the downtown area. Parking in downtown is difficult to find at times. 

The two restaurants we ate at were superb! BoVida had the best organic acai bowls I've ever had in my life as well as sandwiches (my hubby loved their paninis), soup of the day, salads (the strawberry & gorgonzola salad is divine!!) and smoothies. The Coast Cafe was delicious too with lots of menu options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner... The fish tacos and the fish and chips were our favorites from the Coast Cafe. 

Bolinas Lagoon... We loved seeing the egrets and other shore birds.

  1. I love the look of Bolinas Beach! And what a cute Little Free Library. You sure know how to find them. :D
