Let's get together on December 11

The rising hills, the slopes,
of statistics
lie before us.
the steep climb
of everything, going up,
up, as we all
go down.

In the next century
or the one beyond that,
they say,
are valleys, pastures,
we can meet there in peace
if we make it. 

To climb these coming crests
one word to you, to
you and your children:

stay together
learn the flowers
go light

~ For the Children, by Gary Snyder

We're going to get together for the children on December 11 at 1pm. And for us grownups who might need some time in nature, some time together. We're going to explore a very low tide at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline. It will be a Kings Tide which is special and unique and worth knowing about. We're going to walk, talk, exhale, explore, and be together.

Join us! Invite your neighbors, friends, family. Invite classmates and colleagues. All are welcome. The beach is big. There is room for everyone.

  • Sunday, December 11 from 1pm till sunset (about 4:45)
  • If it's raining, we'll post our plans to the website and Facebook 
  • Point Pinole Regional Park in Richmond. Directions are here.
  • We'll meet in the parking lot and walk less than a mile to the beach. 
  • Instructions to get to the beach: Walk up the hill to the right of the parking lot. You'll find a bridge across the train tracks. Cross the bridge. Continue up the paved road towards the playground. Turn left at the playground towards the water. Walk south towards the water. If you're after 1:30pm or so, listen for loud children.
  • Directions to Point Pinole are here.
  • Bring snacks, water, a towel or two, and a change of clothes. 
  • Bring shoes with which you can walk in water. 
  • Oh, and there's mud. 
  • Please RSVP here
