California, Glass Beach and Sausalito – Day 5 – Off to Sausalito, pit stop at Glass Beach in Fort Bragg. On our way to Sausalito, we opted to take a detour to Glass Bech in Fort Bragg. http://www.fortbragg.com/explore/glass-beach/. It was a beautiful beach. Although the day was cloudy it was worth the trip. You don’t readily see the glass on the beach but once you start looking it is there. They are fairly small pieces, but fun to find and look at and the beach was awesome. Big rocks and cliffs to climb. I would have enjoyed spending a whole afternoon there climbing and exploring. Lightning found some crabs in the water too. Needless to say she immediately created a science experiment for us to try when we got home. She wants to try to smooth out glass when we get home to try to simulate what the ocean does to glass, as seen on glass beach.
When we arrived in Sausalito we could not have been happier with our room and location. We stayed at Hotel Sausalito, http://www.hotelsausalito.com, with a room overlooking San Francisco Bay. They had apples and water for your convenience right before you entered the small outside patio area. We had 3 ice cream stores within walking distance from our hotel, perfect for us ice cream lovers. We walker around for a few minutes and did some window shopping, other than I purchased a doodle book for San Francisco, check it out in our store, for her to work on while we were there. In addition to the pictures in the doodle book there was also information regarding the sites. We picked an awesome restaurant, the Triton, http://www.thetridentrestaurant.com, and throughly enjoyed the wonderful clam chowder with read and the conversation with the the host and our waitress; they were all so friendly.
The next morning we woke up, enjoyed the bakery item and a drink at the bakery next to our hotel, compliments of our hotel. We walked around the town again, saw some beautiful homes and walked along the waterfront. We encountered several residents on our walk, who were so friendly. We are definitely big fans of this town.
