We had the most wonderful day trip on Friday to Tomales Bay. We drove out Hwy. 37 to Lucas Valley Road and then on to Nicasio Valley Road. The scenery was just so beautiful and the drive there was almost as good as our time spent on the bay.
There are picnic tables and grills right there along the shore. You can schuck your own oysters and barbecue them up with no waiting. We already had made plans to have lunch elsewhere but I love oysters and the idea of having fresh ones right out of the bay was quite tempting.
I love this picture of Doug and Jacob. It reminds me so much of a shot I have of my dad when he was probably about 2 or 3 standing alongside his dad.
Afterwards we headed into Point Reyes Station for lunch at the Station House Café.
Once he graced each of us with a few, he decided he’d had enough. Anna didn’t get the memo and tried for another but was rebuffed.
I wish I could have brought all of the flowers home with us.
In the back they host the Gallery Route One Artists in School art show. Toby's even had a kids' section. There was something for everyone.
As soon as we hit the beach, the kids started making plans….so much to do and so little time.
The girls headed in for a swim
The girls also found a baby seal skeleton. There were birds everywhere and Lauren discovered a chipmunk she named “Pop”. Finally, we decided it was time to head back and so we packed up and set out on the return trip.
It was such a great day and I highly recommend taking a trip out that way if you've never been!
