Angel Island

Angel Island is a California State Park in the middle of the big bay. It has seen many bygone eras and the remnants of old buildings tell it’s historical past. There are bike trails, hiking trails, and a handful of coveted camping sites. I was lucky enough to have a friend reserve a campsite 6 months in advance! We took a ferry from Tiboron with our home on our backs and hiked to the campsite. Perched on the east side of the island, I sat in amazement taking in the expansive view of San Francisco to Richmond. There had been threatening rain clouds hovering amongst bursts of sun and then it appeared…. a DOUBLE RAINBOW coming out of treasure island (obviously where the pot of gold was). A sign of good luck, I hope!

Reserve your spot now for October! Actually, that’s not a bad idea. It’s our Indian Summer.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
