folks who come every year for the first two weeks of August
For the past five years my husband and i have rented this wonderful place for the first two weeks of August. Each year our four children, their spouses and children have rented other lagoon locations for all or part of the same time. We have had many great good times during these stays. Six of the eight cgrandchildren can now kayak, canoe and pole board up and down the lagoon (only the 3-yr old twins are not yet that accomplished.
What we cal "our house" is bright and cheery, with becks on both sides. Its location is special because the front side faces Bolinas lagoon, a habitat for seals, egrets and other peaceful creatures, especially at sunset time, while the back deck faces the man-made lagoon where the water is warm and the boating and swimming are glorious. The house is easy walking or biking distance from the big ocean and the long flat walking beach. (Swimming there works only if you have wet suits.)
The kitchen is well equipped (gas stove, which I love) and the sub-zero refrig is ample. Furniture is attractive and comfy, and the beach towel supply is endless.
This house has two bedrooms. Much as we love the happy times with our children and grandchildren, we love them to have their own houses, so that we can keep the guest room available for our guests or just leave it empty and enjoy quiet moments.
We may miss the TV during this coming campaign season, but our computers and the wireless connection and the NY Times can give us the important news.
We've made good use of foggy morning walks, trips to the Bovine Bakery and the good Italian restaurant (??) in Point Reyes, and to Nick's Cove north of Pt. Reyes.
I would recommend this property to anyone who I think will appreciate and care for it. It is one of the best in the colony. (Just don't plan on the firs two weeks of August!)
We look forward to our 2012 time at 147 Dipsea.
