My family decided to kick-off the 2020 holiday season by renting a house in Stinson Beach. It was our first vacation since Covid, so that’s 9-months we haven’t traveled anywhere. The house was literally on the beach, and just what we needed for a little R&R. I considered bringing my surf photography gear, but decided against it because, well, Stinson. But I did bring my Fuji x-e3 to do some ‘street’ photography on the beach. We also had an uncommon, spectacular sunset which I shot with my aging Samsung s8 phone. They say the best camera is the one you have with you, and I think that’s true. Otherwise, the days were spent boogie boarding with my kids and eating some amazing pizzas and breakfast baked goods from Parkside Cafe, which was a 5-min walk from the house.
