The Sunday Traveler has been known to more than once trespass and enter where it says do not. Anything to get the photos I want, and see right behind that sign and/or gate. I previously posted about the Point Reyes Lighthouse Station here in Northern California. On a little road trip one day to specifically see said lighthouse, we discovered that the path to the lighthouse was closed. Closed?
The Sunday Traveler always thinks this Do Not sign is not meant for her. Not when this is right over that gate in plain sight. I’ve also adopted the attitude of it is better to ask for forgiveness if getting caught, than ask for permission and be told no. I laugh in the face of no. Ha! With a small bag of little picnic munchies, my friend and I ducked under the gate and proceeded up the path to enjoy incredible vistas along the way to the point where the lighthouse could be seen. And, because we were the only apparent lawbreakers, we had the place to ourselves. All ours! No one else was in this incredible place. It was cold and very windy, but we found a bench with a cliff behind it that blocked the wind. The sun warmed us as we ate, ogled the ocean below us. And we laughed with glee like two kids having gotten away with a big one.
We had gotten away with a big one. We were respectful of our space/bench where we lunched and made sure every crumb was cleaned up.
Yes, that’s the Sunday Traveler’s leg and camera bag…not showing my face to avoid seeing my picture on a post office bulletin board along with other most wanted criminals; but this was our little bit of heaven for just a little while.
And just a few more feet up the path we came to another fence blocking entry down to the stairs to the lighthouse. We totally respected this one, and stayed back to look over and through the fence.
We will go back once the construction is complete and can go down those stairs to the lighthouse.
The Sunday Traveler can say this has to have been my most fun day trip. Ever.
