Hello, happy Sunday, and welcome to my weekend musings. I took the above photo while I was back in Northern California spending the weekend in one of my all-time favorite spots – Sea Ranch. When I was a kid Sea Ranch was our winter vacation destination and I’ve loved it ever since.
It’s about a three and a half hour drive from SFO to Sea Ranch on a very small road that brings you on what seems like an infinite number of deep twists and turns along California’s rugged coastline. Sea Ranch is famous for houses like this:
Most of the houses at Sea Ranch are made of Redwood and they have gone to great lengths to make sure that the homes are spread out giving a reclusive and private feeling. While the homes are all on or very close to the coast this isn’t your Southern California surfing paradise. What I always really appreciated about Sea Ranch is that you can truly escape into the woods while still enjoying the comforts of being at home:
I’ve found that most people who visit the Bay Area tend to stick to San Francisco, which is definitely an incredibly city, but if you’re looking for an escape into the woods, just know Sea Ranch isn’t too far.
Of course that was a week ago and like most weeks this has been an incredibly busy one. I was excited to see Fashion Metric featured in Silicon Hills News on Thursday:
Daina and I could not be more proud of the incredible team we are building and a technology that is clearly solving an enormous problem. These are still the early days but I can tell you that so far this has been without a doubt the most satisfying, challenging, and interesting thing I have ever done in my life.
I can still remember when I used to dread Monday’s, now they’re my favorite day of the week. Okay, time to go, we just got back from Yoga and are making a delicious breakfast. Oh, and if you’re ever looking for a good breakfast potato recipe, I highly recommend this one. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope you’re as excited as I am for the week ahead, if not, it’s time for a change, life is short so you should spend it doing what you love with the people you love.
