Stinson Beach, Marin County

Twenty-some miles north of San Francisco and only two and a half miles from the famously secluded and private Bolinas, the Bolinas Bay townlet of Stinson Beach—has been a popular resort area and tourist destination since the late 1800s.
This is where i lived from the age of 17 to 22 or 23 .I was living in New York City and i was part of the radical underground scene there and was living in the collective known as Underground Press Syndicate .We were the nerve center for all the underground newspapers in America .
Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin operated out of our loft as a Yippie office. One day i left ,said my goodbyes and stuck out my thumb with a sign that read California or bust.
The first car that stopped pulled over and said i am going to California ,hop in and after a series of amazing adventures i landed in Bolinas and after moved the 2 miles to Stinson Beach. In some ways it was the same town. There i lived in a commune on the beach and we all cooked together and hung out together.
Those were great times as i came of age ….It was from here that i left in 1976 and cut my hair and got a car and entered the record business in Canada effectively changing my life 360 degrees.
Stinson is an hour drive from where i live now and i go there quite often .
