Bolinas Bay & Bolinas Ridge
This dramatic view of Bolinas Bay and Willow Camp (now know as Stinson Beach) was captured from above Brighton Beach. In the foreground are cypress trees planted by Nellie Waterhouse and the roof of her daughter Marin’s teahouse built in 1908.
Dipsea Inn can be seen on the sand spit in the distance. The inn was built in 1904 when the hope for a train bringing visitors to the area seemed possible. It was torn down in 1918. The famous Dipsea Race, which is run still each year to this day, was organized to end at the inn.
