“I found a remarkable life under many white-golden branches and a full canopy of green leaves. Despite living in the Bay Area for the last five years, I had no idea this place existed. My mind was never opened up to the possibility of a beautiful trail that is linked to the sea.” Then, one day, I was sitting in the restaurant, and nearby one old couple was discussing their Saturday plan to visit Highway One. Suddenly, our eyes met, and they guided me verbally about this trail in Coffe-talk.
The Californian old couple suggested that I go to Pescadero State Beach and Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve. They encouraged me to see the wishing tree there. They communicated softly in my eyes with a trustworthy smile and said- “You will fall in love with that tree. Whenever you have a great wish, you can visit there. Your wish will come true when you go with your pure heart and whisper it with pure love.”

Absolutely! I am not lying to you. The Bay area is blessed with a Wishing Tree. It is not as tall and straight as a young Eucalyptus, but it has a wide appearance with branches that touch the ground. You will feel like you are standing in front of your grandparents, who want to bless you always with no reason if you genuinely look at it. Your kids can sit over the solid branches and can play under the green shadow. This tree is fantastic in many ways.

When you go there, just follow the way of Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve, and Common Salt Marsh Plant.”

In the case of severe headache, many people grind its fresh leaves and apply its paste on the forehead.
