Pt. Reyes is a snapshot of coastal California from 100 years ago complete with whitewashed barns, circling Red Tail Hawks and miles of quietness.
We worked our way out towards Tomales Point on a pristine, cloudless morning, past the Thule elk herd, through the celebration of wildflowers and towards the jagged coastal apex. Our picnic was rewarded with a spectacular vista of Bodega Bay and the impressive landscape of the Pacific Coast.
A particular gem in the area is the Big Mesa Farmstead, a working farm complete with an Alpaca named Cheryl (male), a large outdoor communal kitchen, impressive glamping tents and plenty of space for activities.
We celebrated Earth Day by planting salad greens, removing invasive species and ate dozens of oysters on the half shell.
