Just before sunrise at the Marin Headlands looking towards the Golden Gate Bridge with Sutro Tower in the back to the right and covered in fog to the right would be Baker Beach, Sutro Baths/Cliff House and then Ocean Beach.

The road I normally take to Muir Beach washed out in the rains this past winter so I didn't get to go until late May. There is a long way to get there but that passes by Stinson Beach and would take over an hour instead of the usual 15 minute trip. If you're lucky and happen by at just the right time whales can be seen feeding just off shore. Last year I spent 6 hours watching whales feed there. It was amazing!

No, nothing really supernatural. I'm still undecided on that subject. However when I first moved into my current house I would occasionally smell burnt wood in the kitchen when I hadn't been cooking or anything. About a year later I met a guy down the street who had a Bultaco motorcycle in his garage and we started talking about that because I had one years earlier. In our conversation I found out that about a decade earlier there had been a fire in the house. So now when I smell that burnt wood I wonder if someone had died and is trying to tell me something.

I did have what is commonly called a near death experience where I saw a light and spent some time with what I knew was a recently deceased friend although I'm not convinced that's anything more then the brain in some kind of dream state when starved of oxygen. Although I do vividly remember that and don't normally remember dreams. So who knows.

Thanks @thaecos! This was actually a strange day for me, I woke up as the sun was rising rather than still being up when the sun was rising.

Happy 2018 for those already in the new year! It's 9am (0900) in California and getting ready to go scout out a location to view the sunrise tomorrow. If it works out it will be at a cool cemetery nearby. Hope everyone has/had a safe and happy new years.
