I’m not a hippie—actually, who am I fooling, of course I am—but Bolinas always will be the place to be for me. I know where it is and how to get to it, too, which defies the highway signs and the questionable guidance of the Bolinas Border Patrol. But Bolinas is not my only sojourn into places that may or may not exist—I’ve also spent time in Uranium Springs and on Fairy Tale Island. Try finding those on maps.
All of which is a long way of saying that for those in the know, Bolinas Beach is the premiere spot for age reversal. Some say it’s the sun; some say it’s the proximity to a secret and magical portal found beneath downtown Bolinas. Others say it’s the surfing, the sunbathing or the annual 4th of July tug-of-war with Stinson Beach that promote strong anti-aging effects. Me? I say it’s the vibes. Get out there this summer, while they are strong.
