So let’s see – the last I left this travelogue (as my Mom called it – good name!) we arrived in Tiburon and the sun was coming up over the beautiful marina and we were taking pictures while wearing the plushy provided robes (well you didn’t see those pictures). Did I mention that this hotel included a room service breakfast for each of us every single day? Well it was something called a “continental breakfast.” Now my Carl and I have stayed in plenty of hotels, so we knew what to expect, more or less. What we didn’t expect was enough food to feed us each for breakfast, for lunch, and sometimes we had leftovers as a mid-afternoon snack. Oh, and we each got our own pot of coffee too! In any case, by the time we got out and about, it was about noon (this was a vacation, right?) and we did a little sightseeing around the town.
But first, a picture of our awesome rental car that I have already mentioned.
And the view from the end of our street – it was beautiful and sunny and the bay was right past those red umbrellas!
So this was kind of a cool area – right across the street. It seemed to be sort of a man-made inlet, with bridges and fountains and awesome little stores and condos. The best part was that many of the balconies had views of the bay (with the mountains in the distance), the inlet, and part of the town – so pretty!
Apparently, though, I was not impressed, ha.
Although I did run into this very handsome man along the way.
As we walked closer to the bay, we saw this amazing little house all the way at the end. Isn’t it cute? It makes me immediately want to move to New England (Massachusetts? Maine?) because of the Colonial style with the dark gray barn board exterior. Plus, the view. We can’t forget about that!
The view looking back towards the town.
Who knew we were standing on a historical trail? We sure the heck didn’t know Tiburon was a railroad town before we got there, but we found the history fascinating.
And one last picture for today, looking back towards the marina. It was the kind of day that makes you want to sit in the sun, soak up the view and good vibes, and just be. And that is exactly what we did.
