Patience is what this man has. I watched along with about a dozen other people as this man balanced large rocks on top of small ones. Seemed impossible

Making art from balancing rocks, amazing. He ropes off the area he is building the balancing rock art pieces. A unique talent. He has photos to sell. We were just walking on Bridgeway and walked by his setup. This guy has serious skills.

I usually have a very limited attention span for this type of thing but I could have sat and watched this guy for hours. He's amazing. No pushing for money either. Stop and appreciate his work if you get a chance.

Easy to find and free, this unique spot in Sausalito is photogenic and fun. Just walk down the street where all the action is near the water and you're sure to find it.

We were not aware of when Mr. Dan balances. Clearly, some may not withstand the incoming tide, so I would imagine for the number we saw, he does do it somewhat regularly. The visitors bureau maybe could tell you.
