From Songs of Innocence
by William Blake
When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;
When the meadows laugh with lively green,
And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene;
When Mary and Susan and Emily
With their sweet round mouths sing 'Ha ha he!'
When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread:
Come live, and be merry, and join with me,
To sing the sweet chorus of 'Ha ha he!'

* The breathtakingly beautiful coast is only 20 minutes to the west (Bodega Bay and many sandy beaches). The beaches and scenery are the best. (Unfortunately, the water is too cold for most to swim in and the coastal weather can be very chilly in the summer, so bring lots of warm clothes.)

* Tomales Bay is a long finger just the the east of Pt. Reyes. It's ideal for kayaking and offers hiking and serene shoreline vistas.
