In “Moby-Dick,” Herman Melville famously called “lonely” Nantucket an “elbow of sand” that was “all beach, without a background.” The description is more appealing today. The 14-mile-long island, once a refuge for persecuted Quakers, is now a summer refuge for the global elite. But don’t worry, the one-percenters haven’t completely taken over. Thirty miles southeast of Hyannis on Cape Cod, Nantucket is a bastion of conservation, with almost 45 percent of the land in trusts, and over 800 pre-Civil War-era buildings still standing in Nantucket town. There are virtually no fenced-off beaches; most of the 82 miles of glorious coastline are open to the public. Nantucket hasn’t turned into a fossilized monument of its whaling past.

Treat yourself to some of the world-renowned local wine and watch the sun go down over the hills. Of course, there’s no shortage of natural beauty in Marin County. Beach lovers will enjoy Stinson Beach, one of my personal places, or Point Reyes National Seashore where you will experience wildlife at every step. Also, if youre lucky enough that is, you just might spot some Elephant Seals or Tule Elk along the rugged terrain or, from Point Reyes #Lighthouse, catch a glimpse of a pod of whales. Go butterfly or bird watching and enjoy the many natural wonders of California’s Northern Coast.

At 10:21am tomorrow, September 22, 2016, is the Fall Equinox. I describe it as when there is a shift from warm, beautiful summer days to cozy fall. There are only two times of the year when the Earth’s axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun. March 19th (Vernal Equinox – the first day of Spring) and September 22nd, (Autumnal Equinox – the first day of fall). We’re going to be enjoying the cooler days of autumn, while, south of the equator, spring is about to begin.
The word Equinoz is from the Latin aequinoctium, aequus (equal) and nox (genitive noctis) (night).
