Cheshire Cat Photo Blog Top Ten in 2009 (1st half)

I realized maybe a week ago that I had not done a “Top Ten” blog entries accessed for the first half of 2009 (through June 30), as I had for the first half of 2008 and for all of 2008!

So here they are (in reverse order with my comments), with the understanding that older blog entries have been around longer and have had a greater opportunity to get hits. (And I realize that people may have bookmarked these entries… [they’re that popular!])

10. Marin Headlands • Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 There is a lot going on in the Marin Headlands, even a Nike Missile silo that you can tour!

09. Point Bonita Lighthouse • Saturday, July 5th, 2008 This “secret jewel” of the Bay Area is well worth a visit, and the docents are nicer than the Guardian of the Bridge of Death…. :-)

08. Sitting on top of the world… • Wednesday, May 14th, 2008 Brian Wison is still a genius, and the “California Dream” is still alive (just not particularly well funded right now). :-)

07. San Francisco National Cemetery • Sunday, July 13th, 2008 This cemetery in San Francisco’s Presidio is a reminder of the high cost of freedom.

06. Manresa State Beach • Tuesday, March 25th, 2008 This blog entry is popular, but the beach and campgrounds are more popular STILL! :-)

05. Sunset State Beach • Friday, March 28th, 2008 Rich with both human and natural history, Sunset State Beach still dazzles when Bermuda Buttercups fill its campgrounds in spring (that’s “late winter” to some of you)!

04. The Tall Ships in San Francisco • Tuesday, July 1st, 2008 The Tall Ships come to San Francisco from time to time, and touring them is a rare treat!

03. The Merced River • Wednesday, June 25th, 2008 The river named El Rio de Nuestra Señora de la Merced (River of Our Lady of Mercy) in 1806 by an expedition led by Gabriel Moraga is a National Wild and Scenic River.

02. Mission San Francisco de Asís (Dolores) and Basilica • Tuesday, January 8th, 2008 Mission San Francisco de Asís (”La Misión Dolorosa“) is the oldest surviving structure in San Francisco. The Basilica was designated a basilica in 1952 by Pope Pius XII.


01. Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa • Monday, January 21st, 2008 California’s only “L-shaped” Mission, near “la Cañada de los Osos” (the Valley of the Bears)….

Stay tuned around the first of next year for the Top Ten from all of 2009.
