View From Marin
WE KICK OFF the first issue of spring with our annual spring fashion shoot — staying on trend with the fringy and lightweight
fabrics of the season that look even better in
movement. Flip through the pages to get a preview of what you’ll be wearing when the days
start to get longer and the weather temps rise.
Next up, we head outdoors to see who

We turned photographer Claudia
Goetzelmann loose at San Francisco’s
Left Space Studios to capture the spirit
of spring fashion for 2015. The goal,
according to Fashion Editor Veronica
Sooley, was to “show movement and
showcase the trends, including pleats,
fringe and lightweight fabrics.” The
shoot was enhanced by our model’s
dance background (a pleasant surprise) and the power of the Reel EFX
RE Fan II wind machine.
photographer Jack Wolford tag along with
some birders who, fresh off the winter bird
count, have their binoculars ready for the
returning birds of spring. Marin is a stop on
the Pacific Fly way, so there is much to see.
Finally, believe it or not, it’s time to start
thinking about summer camps for the little
ones. Before you start planning your nap
and reading schedule, you’ll need to do some
booking — and spaces are filling up fast. So
give our listings a look; we’ve got lots of great
ideas for adventure and fun.
Up front we’ve got some info on the
Battery Townsley hike, including when you
can get a peek at what a World War II casemated battery actually looked like. We also
introduce you to a San Rafael writer, the
guys behind the Marin-inspired Headlands
Brewing Company and College of Marin’s
man-in-charge, David Wain Coon.
In Destinations Sherrie Strausfogel explains
why when it comes time to hit the spa in
Hawaii, you’ll want to find a spot with local and
traditional ingredients. We’ve also got details
and tips on amazing hikes and cool educational
opportunities. And for something a little different, join writer Calin Van Paris on a fairy-tale
trip to Slovenia.
It’s an exciting issue and we hope you enjoy
it. And after you do, we hope to see you out
and about in your finest spring outfit or, just
as likely in Marin, in some cargo shorts with a
pair of binoculars around your neck.
