My name is Linda, and I’m a San Francisco Bay Area mom who loves to get outside for playtime every day. Our outdoor time may be social, solo, park or nature-based, near or at home, quick or lengthy, but, whatever form it takes, we make a point of getting outside every day. I’m a hiker, a trail runner, and an amateur photographer.
When my son was two, I started a playgroup, Nature Time! The Bay Area Outdoor Playgroup, hoping to create a community of nature-loving families getting together for fun, outdoor activities. Through the management of the playgroup and through, even more, the outings I take with my family, I’ve learned some of the best places in the Bay Area for outdoor play and nature exploration. I’ve also learned what can help make an outing more enjoyable, both for parents and children, as well as how to nurture the love of nature in a child. And I’m always finding new places and things to do! Join me on our family explorations!
In this blog, I will share what I’ve learned, hoping it will help inspire others with children, encouraging families to get out into the outdoors more. I photograph and write about the places we go, the things we do, what we see, the benefits of outdoor play, and tips and tricks that make outside time fun.
Curious what I do for work? I’m a piano teacher, licensed in the Simply Music Piano method.
