Tomales Bay Holiday

Pin It
After Christmas, we packed our bags, and flew north. Destination, Tomales Bay. One of our favorite places. We started going six or seven years ago, always in November and December, and the magic of the Pt. Reyes Seashore got to us -- isolated, foggy, and serene. I love seeing the cows in the pastures (except when they run, moving cows totally creep me out), hearing the owls at night, and taking misty walks through the forest.

This time around, it seems others have discovered the area as well, so there were more people (boo!) and the weather was a little too sunny (we missed the rolling fog). But despite these setbacks, we had a great time hanging out on the marsh land, hiking, and eating dozens and dozens of oysters.

With not much to do after dark, we spend cozy evenings in our historic little motel, reading and watching House Hunters. It was a nice change of pace, and a fun way to say goodbye to the year.
