Sibley's gorgeous right now (well, as soon as the rain lets up). Up Snake, left on Skyline about a mile. Bring the dog and follow other hikers. On a foggy day, it's just like Lord of the Rings.
The Oakland Rose Garden. Bring the computer and the kids to get work done while they nose around or look for frogs. Grand to Jean St. Then stop in at Ace Garden and ask Kevin Numoto (my landscape stager) or Wyatt Alt (my son) for help.
The Point Reyes Peninsula. Stop by the Inverness house on your way out for a nice hike and great views of the Pacific Ocean. We're there most weekends---
